Sanyo PLV-Z700 review

 

Sanyo's sub-£1000 projector promises super-quiet operation and bags of detail – can it do enough to worry the likes of InFocus and Panasonic?

Sanyo PLV-Z700 review

 

If you're looking for a solid projector for around a grand then the Sanyo PLV-Z700 ticks all the right boxes

Fully specified 1080p projector ; simple set-up ; natural, insightful image ; supremely confident with dark and bright scenes

It's a bulky unit

Superb performance-per-pound value ensures this should be on any budget projector shortlist

Sanyo PLV–Z700 review

 

Sanyo’s entry-level HD effort covers all bases extremely effectively. Its 1080p pictures are crisp, clear and just what you’d expect from something packing two HDMI ports. The 1,200 lumens provide ample pictures in conditions nowhere near pitch black,...

The PLV–Z700 is somewhat let down when trying to handle standard-definition content, as we found when we hooked up our Tiscali TV box to watch the latest installment of Hollyoaks (don’t judge us! The storylines are gripping). Being aimed at those with...

If you don't plan on providing it with much HD content, there are plenty of cheaper projectors available. But if you want to experience 1080p video in its full glory, the Sanyo PLV-Z700 is currently one of the cheapest Full HD projectors around, and as...

Sanyo PLV-Z 700

 

Great 24p movie picture., Highly versatile (lens-shift and zoom)., Comprehensive video processing., Fair price.

Mediocre brightness., Low contrast., Slight motion-blur.

An excellent projector that’s easy to use and comes at an extremely fair price! The crisp HDTV picture impresses, and clever control technology compensates for the device’s limited contrast. In brief: A superb projector for smaller rooms and smaller...

Sanyo PLV-Z700 16:9 LCD Full HD Projector Reviewed

 

Sanyo's entry-level projector packs quite a visual punch in terms of color reproduction, contrast and light output. What the PLV-Z700 won't do is put a hurt on your budget for its one of the least expensive, full-featured LCD projectors on the market...

The Sanyo PLV-Z700 is a phenomenal projector in many ways and one that most consumers would be happy to own, but there are a few issues that keep it from being mistaken for a reference-grade projector. For starters, the lack of digital keystone...

The Sanyo PLV-Z700 HDTV LCD projector is a benchmark product for consumers looking to get into the front-projection game on a budget. Packed with features and one of the most brilliant and colorful pictures you're going to find this side of $5,000, the...

When you consider all the aspects that make for a good picture; color accuracy, richness, saturation, sharpness, black levels, shadow and highlight details, and so on, the PLV-700 is actually pretty impressive considering it’s the currently lowest...
