Summary: Great projector for a DIY theater room. Easy set up and great picture. This is a low lumen projector so use in low light settings. It is installed in my basement theater room where I can have almost zero ambient light.
Summary: Personal Experience I bought mine as a grade A reconditioned unit on ebay over 3 years ago. It cost me Â£700 (around $1400 at today's exchange rate but nearer $1000 at the time). It still carried a year's warranty and looked brand new (normally the warranty is 3 years).
Summary: Personal Experience Been living with this machine for over 3 years now. Picked it up at bargain price, so wasn't expecting too much. However, it has exceeded all my expectations. Not a top performer, but an excellent all-rounder for the money. Problems Very well behaved.
Summary: Personal Experience This is an update to the PLV-Z1 that I have owned for close to three years. It has performed flawlessly and has had no warranty issues. It is still running on the original bulb, about 1300 hrs and still going strong.
Summary: Personal Experience Can't beat this product for only $500.00,,,I sit 1.3 times back,,,do see the screen door but not really a issue,,,for $500, great bang for the buck, it's as simple as that!
Summary: Personal Experience I found the Z1 for $499.00 new. So I upgraded from my Epson S1. I have to say at that price it was a real bargin. Screen door is almost non-exsistant and colors pop off the screen.

Summary: I have enjoyed several films now with this great baby. Resolution is great for the type of projector. Not excellent but absolutely good for seeing a film at home. At least much better than buying a 2 to 3 thousand dlls TV and providing an image that could be as big as twice the biggest TV or even...
Summary: Personal Experience I use PLV-Z1 for the last two years.The screen is 2,40 meters. The quality of the image is perfect (colors, contrast, e.t.c.) when I watch movies(DVDs)and I have no light in the room. (I use it only for movies). I have no reason to replace PLV-Z1 with any new model yet.
Summary: Personal Experience This is a follow up on my past review and let me tell you, this projector, at the price it's going for now, WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!!!! I bought it back in October '03 and have watched tons of movies.
