  • Summary: 1st lamp still working but nevertheless replaced at 3999 hrs. At 4855 hrs the 2nd lamp died yesterday. 8854 hrs total to date.....amazing. Now running on original bulb while waiting for the new lamp to arrive. I will be upgrading when budget permits and can only hope for the same reliability.

  • Summary: I purchased a PLV-Z5 in January, 2007, and it has been heavily used daily until May, 2012, when I obtained a Panasonic PT AE4000U. I can't say enough good things about this projector and Sanyo US in-warrany service.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Bought the Z-5 in November 2006. Everyday I'm still amazed at how good this projector looks. Not the greatest with SD cable, don't expect it to on a 90 inch screen. HD and games on the other hand look incredible.

Poor Quality - Poor Service

Ian Whitney "Ian Whitney", Amazon

  • Summary: The performance of the projector is acceptable, though unremarkable, but the warranty service deserves comment. My projector broke down after 1200 hours (roughly 1 year). Still clearly under warranty it was returned to the retailer for repair. It has now been 8 weeks and the projector is not back.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Good picture but not very bright even in a totally dark room. I set it on the brighter settings but still in lamp eco mode in order to get the brightness up but keep the lamp lasting longer. Still, I can't complain for the price. Problems Door over lens wouldn't open.

  • Summary: Personal Experience After reading all the reviews on this site I decided to buy the Z-5. I'm not disappointed! This is my first projector and my learning curve for the usage was relatively short. For the price you cannot go wrong.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Second update to a previous post of mine.... For those of you who are pondering the idea of 1080p capability, well you will have no issues, as long as you are using the HDMI connection(s). I hooked up my Xbox 360 via HDMI to the receiver and from the receiver via HDMI to the Z5.
