Conclusion: An excellent projector that’s easy to use and comes at an extremely fair price! The crisp HDTV picture impresses, and clever control technology compensates for the device’s limited contrast. In brief: A superb projector for smaller rooms and smaller budgets! Excellent: The Sanyo PLV-Z 700 stands out with motorized lens-protection and lens-shift — far from a matter of course in this price class!
Pros: Great 24p movie picture., Highly versatile (lens-shift and zoom)., Comprehensive video processing., Fair price.
Excerpt: Two dramatic changes strike me about the progress made by the makers of digital projectors over the last decade. First and foremost is their almost total success in conquering the "screen-door" problem, even in LCD projectors. It wasn’t too long ago that the black bars competed with the picture; these days, you have to get close to the screen to see any pixel pattern at all.
Excerpt: 2009's Award-winning budget projector turned in a mightily impressive performance to take the projector crown, delivering pictures that, just a couple of years ago, would have required a far more serious downpayment. The Sanyo partners staggeringly good-value performance with simple set-up – a simpler blueprint for projectors doesn't exist. It doesn't get any easier on the eye, however.
Pros: Fully specified 1080p projector, simple set-up, natural, insightful image, supremely confident with dark and bright scenes
Excerpt: Sanyo’s PLV–Z700 is aimed squarely at those looking to get into the HD projector game. But does it deliver everything we want from a top notch picture spitter?
Pros: Sanyo’s entry-level HD effort covers all bases extremely effectively. Its 1080p pictures are crisp, clear and just what you’d expect from something packing two HDMI ports. The 1,200 lumens provide ample pictures in conditions nowhere near pitch black, with the projector adjusting the light levels depending on what you;re feeding through it.
Cons: The PLV–Z700 is somewhat let down when trying to handle standard-definition content, as we found when we hooked up our Tiscali TV box to watch the latest installment of Hollyoaks (don’t judge us! The storylines are gripping). Being aimed at those with a Blu–Ray player or Sky HD however, this is a minor quibble. Try not to push the picture size too big though, as you’ll get plenty of video noise round the edges.
Summary: The projector world has been tough place to survive these past few years. With brands like InFocus and Panasonic delivering great performance at ludicrously low prices, it’s been hard for other to keep on the pace. Sanyo’s been quietly churning out machines of considerable quality, though – and the PLV-Z700 sees the company taking on the big-hitters in prime battle territory, the sub-£1000 price-point.
Excerpt: Projector Reviews Sanyo PLV-Z700 Full High Definition LCD Home Theatre Projector The Sanyo PLV Z700 projector is a 1080p model with an exceptional amount of detail in the image and features quite a high contrast level of 10,000:1. This is similar to the new Epson TW3000 with a similar LCD engine driving the beast and the Z700 also has a similar zoom lens of 2x allowing quite flexible installation.
Conclusion: Sanyo przygotowało kilka nowości produktowych w segmencie kina domowego, które trafiają do sklepów pod koniec 2008 roku. Jedną z nich jest projektor PLV-Z700 wyposażony w nowe panele LCD o rozdzielczości Full HD (1920x1080 pikseli). Panele są nowe lecz nie oferują wyższych parametrów technicznych niż stosowane w recenzowanym na naszych łamach starszym modelu PLV-Z2000.
Pros: Dobra jakość obiektywu, Bogaty zestaw gniazd, Solidna budowa, Obiektyw chroniony przed kurzem, Bardzo cichy
