Sanyo PLV-Z4 Projector Review

 

Looks like this projector has pros only and no cons. Yes if compared with High end and High price DLP projectors, you may find some minor differences. First thing to be noticed is that DLP produce a strong black level in the picture image. But again...

Manufacturer's suggested Retail Price on Sanyo PLV-Z4 is close to $3000 but the Manufacturer's Advertised Price and the street price is $2195. This is a great deal as there is not much difference in price from the previous model. This is the number one...

Sanyo PLV-Z4

The fall release of the hottest new home theater projectors is coming to be an annual event, stimulated in part by the fall holiday buying season, and in part by the CEDIA trade show that takes place in early September. Sanyo's release of the PLV-Z4...

A good projector, but not quite as good as the Z3, and with a few minor annoyances.

Good colour reproduction, great lens shifting capabilities,

Illogical automatic dimming, Colour bleed problems, Convergence issues.

Sanyo PLV-Z4 review

 

Can Sanyo continue punching above its weight?

HD performance ; flexibility ; price

Standard-def niggles, including noise and artefacting

This is, on the whole, a versatile and accomplished projector for a very tempting price
