Sanyo PLV-Z2000 review

 

This won't win any design awards but it doesn't shirk its performance duties

Excellent black level ; Quiet running noise ; Super-sharp images

Noticeable iris ‘grind’ noise ; Ordinary standard-definition performance ; Plain ugly

Style hang-ups aside, this set can provide some truly excellent pictures

Sanyo PLV-Z2000 LCD Projector

 

Can this full high definition LCD projector compete with similarly priced DLP models?

While the Z2000 has the on-paper spec to set your heart pounding, its aesthetics will leave you colder than a penguin's fridge. Essentially it's just a big, chunky cuboid clad in a slightly flimsy and entirely drab white finish. Yeuch. This is...

Sanyo's PLV-Z2000 isn't the prettiest projector we've seen.

Sanyo PLV-Z2000

 

A fine projector: well worth considering, especially if you hunt down a competitive price

Good image quality ; plenty of adjustability ; quiet ; well-equipped

Ideally, we'd like a more dynamic image, with blacker blacks

Sanyo PLV-Z2000

 

A projector with great picture quality and low noise output

Unobtrusive styling, low noise, good image

Low brightness, small maximum screen size

The PLV-Z2000 is a projector that offers great picture quality, which is only slightly hampered by a small overall screen size and low brightness.

Affordable Projectors for Non-Dedicated Home Theater Rooms - Sanyo PLV-Z2000 1080p Projector

 

Front projectors have been the gold standard in home theater for many years. But until recently, front projection meant a CRT-unit the size of a coffee table mounted to the ceiling. It only looked good if you turned your room into a bat-cave, was very...

I could not have picked a better product than the Sanyo PLV-Z2000 to begin the series. It provides an incredible amount of flexibility in room placement, and with its shuttered door and quiet fan, can be placed in on a coffee table in the middle of the...

Sanyo PLV-Z2000

 

Despite some performance shortcomings of the Sanyo PLV-Z2000 projector, it's nonetheless a competent and feature-rich 1080p entry.

Accurate colour decoding, Independent memory per input, Comprehensive connectivity, Both horizontal and vertical lens shift

Primary and secondary colour accuracy is way off, particularly red and green.

Chapter 4 of The Italian Job on Blu-ray looked very good as well. The dark shots under water and in the building revealed plenty of shadow detail, and the contrasting outdoor boat chase scene showed off the projector's excellent contrast ratio. On our...
