Sanyo PLV-Z 3000

Televisions.com
19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: This projector is a bit like a rough diamond: Only when you give it the necessary polish does it begin to shine, producing a contrast-rich movie picture with authentic colors; the factory setup is barely suitable for home-theater, and requires extensive tuning. The low light-output cannot, however, be corrected in the same way. This shortcoming means — sadly — that we can only recommend the Sanyo for pictures up to two-meters wide.
  • Pros: Versatile positioning., Plenty of useful picture controls., High contrast., Barely any judder in movie playback (at 24 and 60 Hz).
  • Cons: Inaccurate colors in the factory setup., Not particularly bright., Average de-interlacing of standard TV.

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 LCD Projector

Sound & Vision Magazine

  • Excerpt: Sanyo has long been a big player in the business projector market. However, while it has a serious presence in home projectors in many markets, it has remained relatively low key for U.S. consumers. This is especially true when you compare it with manufacturers who are more aggressive at beating their own drums. But the PLV-Z3000 proves that the company knows its way around home theater projector design.

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 Projector Review

Projector reviews
7 December 2008
  • Conclusion: I must admit that I am not as impressed with the PLV-Z3000 projector as I had hoped. Still, when all is considered, including its status as the lowest priced of the ultra high contrast projectors reviewed so far, it is an excellent value. A better final calibration than we ended up with (not one of the easier projectors to calibrate), may well improve black level performance slightly, and more importantly, add a little more life to dark scenes.
  • Pros: Good color accuracy post calibration in best mode (minor yellow/green push), Rich, dynamic image in brightest mode, with extremely good picture quality, for a brightest mode, Excellent shadow detail performance, Black level performance better than most projectors but not quite as good as the other ultra high contrast projectors, Images really pop on bright scenes, and mixed scenes with a good amount of bright areas, Two HDMI 1.3 inputs, full support for 24 fps, Deep C...

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 review

  • Summary: While the familiar big names are doing their usual thing at this end of the projector market, arguably less high-profile companies such as Sanyo have really upped their game. The PLZ-Z300 might still look blander than woodchip wallpaper, but getting the machine set up and your picture sorted is refreshingly simple.

Sanyo PLV-Z3000

  • Conclusion: Flagowy projektor Sanyo to następca popularnego modelu PLV-Z2000. Urządzenie o tym symbolu mieliśmy okazję testować lecz pomimo szeregu zalet (cicha praca, dobre wyposażenie, niska cena) nie przekonało nas ze względu na słaby obiektyw o kiepskiej ostrości. Testowany przez nas tani model Full HD Sanyo PLV-Z700 pozbawiony był tej przypadłości i tak jak przypuszczaliśmy także model droższy wyposażony jest już w porządny obiektyw.
  • Pros: Dobra jakość obiektywu, Bogaty zestaw gniazd, Solidna budowa, Obiektyw chroniony przed kurzem, Bardzo cichy, Sprawny system 100 Hz
  • Cons: Umiarkowana głębia czerni

PLV-Z 3000

  • Conclusion: Der Sanyo PLZ-V 3000 ist eine Art Rohdiamant, denn er braucht einen gewissen Schliff, ehe er ein kontrastreiches und farbechtes Kinobild und damit seine wahren Werte zeigt. Die Werkseinstellungen sind fürs Heimkino nur bedingt zu gebrauchen, gute Farben lassen sich aber mit vertretbarem Aufwand aus dem LCD-Projektor kitzeln.
