Sanyo PLV-Z800 home theatre projector

 

The Sanyo PLV-Z800 is an entry-level 1080p home theatre projector with a quoted contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and ANSI brightness of 1200 lumens. It need...

Good contrast and smooth colour gradation, near-silent fan

Requires a dark room to display best image, dynamic iris is occasionally noticeable

For a reasonably cheap home theatre projector the Sanyo PLV-Z800 does a great job of displaying smooth, film-like colour. It also operates almost silently, which is a definite advantage during quiet movie scenes.

If it ain't broke, just tweak it very slightly. Sanyo's previous Z700 LCD projector gets an 'overhaul'.

If you fancy setting up your own presets, though, we strongly recommend that you give it a shot. Not least because the Z800 goes a startlingly long way to give you bags of calibration flexibility.

Sanyo PLV-Z800 review

 

The PLV-Z800 looks like a white version of every other Sanyo projector we've ever reviewed – boxy, dull and ugly. At least it's functional, with lens shift wheels that allow you to be more flexible with where you place the projector and a powered lens...

Sanyo’s PLV-Z800 is fine at displaying bright scenes but doesn’t handle monochrome or dark content well. You can get a better LCD projector for less money.

Sanyo PLV-Z800 review

 

The Sanyo PLV-Z800 is an entry-level 1080p home theatre projector with a quoted contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and ANSI brightness of 1200 lumens. It needs a dimly lit room to really shine, but we were impressed by its performance given its price.

If you're after a competent home theatre projector for playing 1080p content, the Sanyo PLV-Z800 is a great choice. We liked its detailed and colourful picture, and the quiet fan impressed us.

Sanyo PLV-Z800 Full Definition Home theatre projector

 

Sanyo have long had a solid performing home theatre line of projectors and the PLV-Z800 is the newest addition to the line. It offers a Full HD resolution with the Epson D7 LCD panels providing an incredibly sharp picture. Sanyo have kept the 2x zoom...

All in all the Sanyo Z800 is a great projector but could have used a little more contrast and brightness. If you're installing it in a darkened home theatre it's still worthwhile.
