Sanyo PLV-Z4 Projector Review

Audioholics
25 February 2006
  • Summary: I believe I may have already said everything there is to say about the Sanyo PLV-Z4. This projector is practical in price, flexible in its functionality, and robust in its capabilities. It can reproduce blacks well for an LCD projector (though it did not strike me as a "DLP-killer") and it can put out color as well as some LCoS displays I've seen. The real strength is in being able to put forth a great amount of sharp picture without significant screen door effect.
  • Pros: Very detailed image, Usable picture/color controls for HDMI input, Extremely quiet, 3000 hour bulb life (max), Excellent LCD panel adjustment and maintenance options, Reduced screen door effect
  • Cons: Requires calibration out of the box, specifically for white and black levels, No 12VDC trigger

  • Excerpt: Sanyo är nu inne på sin fjärde (egentligen femte) generation av LCD-projektorer för hembio – en serie som grundades för cirka fem år sedan av den framgångsrika PLV30! Uppföljaren och starten i Z-serien; PLV-Z1 var i och för sig endast en halvlyckad maskin för sin tid, men Z2 lyfte Sanyo rejält och efterföljande Z3 gjorde också mycket bra ifrån sig.

CHIP Online
15 August 2005
  • Excerpt: Der Z4 ist die konsequente Weiterentwicklung der erfolgreichen Beamer-Reihe mit motorisierter Blende, HDMi-Anschluss und flexiblem Lensshift. Heimkino-Fans sollten aber experimentierfreudig sein, denn erst mit viel Tüfteln wird sein Kinobild zum Erlebnis.
  • Pros: Gute Ausstattung, Gutes Kino-Bild, Automatischer Optik-Verschluss
  • Cons: Farben nicht optimal, Lieferumfang, Verschachtelte Menüs

Sanyo PLV-Z4 - En titt på nästa generations LCD.

Component
9 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Component har haft möjligheten att testa en prototyp av LCD-projektorn Sanyo PLV-Z4. Det står redan nu klart att det rör sig om en klar förbättring av föregående modeller i Z-serien. De sedan tidigare mångsidiga placeringsmöjligheterna har ytterliggare förbättrats och även bildmässigt har man tagit ett stort steg framåt. PLV-Z4 ger en bild som är mer transparent, färgstark och djupare än vad vi någonsin tidigare sett från LCD-projektorer i den här prisklassen.
