  • Summary: Personal Experience Great while it lasted, but blue haze as mentioned before starts on the left hand side. Approaching 5000 hours its impending death is a little disappointing. I think its more to do with the technology than the brand. Please note I've put good (4 stars for all) based on what its been like, not compared to later projectors.

  • Summary: Personal Experience installed with a home made screen 92" diagonal. Very happy with the image with a DVD. When I first got the projector, I played a Amelie this has hand written red letter on black. The basic Sony DVD was terrible, I also tried a LG with DVI not any better and finally the DENON with DVI output is working very well. Problems Sometimes (rare or not often enough to complain...

  • Summary: Personal Experience The image quality is excellent as most viewers will see. But thought I should provide a longer term review with the problems encountered. Problems I have been using the projector now for approximately 14 months. The power supply went in the first six months so the 3 year warranty is a good thing but the down time was about 3 weeks for repair. But now the lamp has expired with about 500-600 hours.

For a fraction of the price of a big TV, and using up much less space, you can get a lot more.

  • Excerpt: This projector is a few years old, but they do still knock around the second hand market, and make an excellent introduction into the world of projectors. At the time the Z2 was considered one of the best projectors around, and even though it is now 5 years old, still provides a very decent image, and has proved to be reliable.

  • Excerpt: I have owned a Sanyo Z2 for over two years now, I work for a Home Cinema company in Phuket, Thailand and this LCD Projector was my personal unit. Hooked up to a Digital Upscaling Projector through DVI the picture is very bright, clear and at 720p resolution looks stunning for the price. I have used it for 1400 hours on economy and it's still going strong on the first bulb.

Echtes Kinoerlebnis zum bezahlbaren Preis

  • Summary: Der Sanyo Z2 ist ein Videoprojektor mit LCD-Technik und HDTV-Auflösung, den man inzwischen für rund 1.200,- EUR kaufen kann (bei Markteinführung im Spätherbst 2003 betrug der Kaufpreis noch 2.300,- EUR!). Bevor ich jedoch auf die speziellen Eigenschaften des Gerätes zu sprechen komme, möchte ich vorab ein paar allgemeine Tipps zum Thema Videoprojektion geben, die insbesondere für Einsteiger von Interesse sein dürften.
  • Pros: Hervorragende Bildqualität, relativ leise, zukunftssicher
  • Cons: Betriebsgeräusch noch deutlich wahrnehmbar, LCD - typische Mängel

Mise en route: A la mise sous tension, le niveau sonore est trés bas vraiment appréciable de plus niveau sonore encore plus bas en passant par le menu puis utilisation lampe en mode éco Les menus sont plus poussés que le z1 Le zoom n'a pas une amplitude trés grande donc VP à placer prés de l'écran Utilisation de la fonction iris pour...

  • Summary: Generally is a best buy at this price range and len shift is very useful on positioning especially in my case inside bed room. The downside is very easy to have dust on the len or LCD panel. I already have servie people come up to remove the dust once after using for only 7 months.

  • Summary: Nun ist er da, der Sanyo PLV-Z2 LCD Heimkinoprojektor. Der Straßenverkaufspreis liegt bei knapp unter 2000€, angesichts der technischen Eckdaten ein "verlockendes" Angebot. Ich besitze noch das Vorgängermodell, den Z1 und wollte wissen, ob sich das "Upgrade" auf den Z2 lohnt, also habe ich mir den Neuling mal genau unter die Lupe genommen. 1.
  • Pros: HDTV Auflösung, sehr leise
  • Cons: LCD typische Mankos auch bei diesem Gerät
