Epson 720 vs. Sanyo PLV-Z5 Home Theater Projector

Projector US
15 March 2007
  • Excerpt: The Epson 720p is an exceptional home theatre projector with incredible image characteristics and an array of user adjustable controls. As we’ve written before, the 720 is a tweaker’s paradise, with powerful controls laid out in a simple, logical manner. The 720p has a large, back lit, user friendly remote, with most of the important functions included right on the remote. The Sanyo PLV-Z5 was a great unit a year ago.
  • Pros: 2 Year Warranty. However, if electronics are going to fail, they are going to fail right out of the box.
  • Cons: Manufacturer: www.sanyo.com

Sanyo PLV-Z5 review

Stuff.tv
5 November 2007
  • Summary: Don't be put off by the cheap and nasty looks – this HD-ready Sanyo projector may well be the company's best projector yet. Packed to the rafters with imaging tech and connections, the deal clincher is you can get your mitts on it for less than half its original launch price. Like all good offspring, the fifth-generation 3LCD Sanyo takes the best bits of its predecessors and adds a little magic of its own.
