Sanyo PLV-Z2000

Televisions.com
19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Z2000 is one of Sanyo’s best projectors. But competition is tough in this sector — Full HD projectors are by no means rare these days, and some are now even available for less than 1,000 GBP. The Sanyo’s biggest selling points are its living-room-friendly optics and design, and the excellent “Pure cinema” preset. On the other hand, a bit more brightness and contrast wouldn’t have gone amiss.
  • Pros: Loads of presets and picture controls., Very quiet., Versatile positioning, thanks to wide zoom and lens shift.
  • Cons: Could be brighter; could have more contrast., Poor interlaced-PAL processing.

Epson 1080 vs. Sanyo PLV-Z2000 Home Theater Projector

Projector US
14 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Epson first introduced the 1080 in April of 2007. Sanyo rolled out the PLV-Z2000 in November of the same year. Both projectors spec out to be virtually identical, but you need to take a closer look at both units to appreciate the differences. Sanyo has cleaned up some previous shortcomings in earlier units, sort of. The PLV-Z2000 is a "sort of" unit. It's good, well, kind of. It throws a decent picture out of the box but the presets could be better.
  • Pros: Moderately noisier than the PLV-Z2000, although it’s still exceptionally quiet
  • Cons: Manufacturer: www.sanyo.com

Epson 1080UB vs. Sanyo PLV-Z2000 Home Theater Projector

Projector US
14 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Epson’s PowerLite Home Cinema 1080UB is a new kid on the block. Originally intended as an improvement over the 1080, the 1080UB is in a class of it’s own. It represents excellent value for dollar, if your original choice was a much more expensive Sony or JVC. We feel that given the current packaging, the 1080 is a better value, but if picture quality is your main goal and you’re comfortable with the higher price, the 1080UB projector is the way to go.
  • Pros: You’ll lose friends who paid twice as much for a Sony or JVC front projector, Expensive when compared to the almost as good Epson 1080
  • Cons: Manufacturer: www.sanyo.com

  • Conclusion: The Sanyo PLV-Z2000 is a big box that delivers an even bigger picture. Images were crisp, set-up was easy and the gaming and TV viewing fantastic. Despite the size issue, it is one of the best performing projectors on the market under $2500.

Sanyo PLV-Z2000 Home Theater Projector Review

Projector reviews
2 November 2007
  • Conclusion: There are still two more new, low cost, 1080p projectors to review in the next few weeks, the Panasonic and Epson entries. Both have predecessors, and both claim significant improvements, but we shall have to see how they compare to the Sanyo, when we get them in. The Sanyo PLV-Z2000, in my opinion, does produce the most natural looking and film-like image of any of the under $3000 1080p projectors we have reviewed to date.
  • Pros: Least expensive 1080p projector, Extremely natural and film-like, Very good at revealing shadow details, Good out of the box performance, with only minor adjustments needed (Pure Cinema mode) for excellent color accuracy, Vertical and Horizontal lens shift with exceptional range for placement flexibility, 2:1 zoom lens for great placement flexibility, Supports HDMI 1.3, with Deep Color, and supports 1080p/24 content, Good remote control, Great warranty, Least expensiv...
