Summary: You'll have to replace the bulb every year, the contrast is not very good, and if any parts wear out, Sanyo may not honour the warranty. I'd recommend you do your research and think about an Epson or something else. I got screwed over when something went wrong with the Sanyo projector.
Summary: I bought this projector in Feb. of 2011 and love it. I replaced an older projector with this model and was blown away by the crisp clean image. The one thing that I like a lot is how quiet this unit is. My old projector sounded like a loud bathroom exhaust fan, I can hardly hear this thing. Like any projector, it puts out some heat but I have a 220sqft room and it takes about three hours to notice the heat from it.
Summary: We bought this projector about a year ago and had trouble ever since. The bulb when out and there is only a 90 day warn. on it so it cost over 300 to get a new one, and now it just will not turn on at all. And if you think about getting help from Sayno fat chance, they do not sick by there produce at all very unhappy and will never buy from them again.....They don't even reply back.
Summary: This is my third projector for HT use, I most recently upgraded from a plv-z3. This PJ is great, I paired it with the GreyWolf screen and the picture is stunning, even in medium light. Much better daytime picture than any other HT projector I've seen. Also has a frame interpolation algorithm that adds an amazing amount of realism to movies. Now that I've used the frame interpolation, I'm overly critical of theater movies and other PJs I've seen in action.
Summary: Personal Experience For the price point it's a very good projector. Replaced a SIM2 HT250 and was very surprised that the Sanyo was simular. Problems Had the unit now for 9 months with not one problem.
Summary: Bonjour, je suis novice dans le cinéma a domicile mais je me suis fait un petit plaisir et je reconnais que le vidéoprojecteur sanyo plv z3000 a un rendu d'image très surprenant voir magnifique , jamais je n'aurai cru cela possible.
Summary: perfekter Schwarzwert, hell genug für abgedunkelte räume selbst im eco mode, gestochen scharfes und plastisches bild wenn der bamer kalibriert ist. Sehr leise im eco (kaum zu hören). Bluray bildqualität besser als bei uns im Kino.
