This ugly projector doesn’t quite make it to the top of the class, but it has plenty of features and good image quality....

Sanyo's Z Series LCD projectors have given us some cracking 1080p models at aggressive price points – and now there's a new flagship. The Z4000 keeps to the formula and packs in high-end features like optical lens shift, while the price...

Sanyo PLV-Z4000 1080p 3LCD home theater projector OK, it's not a mostly shiney new projector. It's just an improvement of "last year's model" at a new lower price. Let's talk about price at this point. From an MSRP standpoint, there...

The PLV-Z4000 has an MSRP of $2,495, but it is actually available for under $2,000 through legitimate outlets. That makes it an excellent value in the world of 1080p projection, yet it does not skimp on features to achieve that price point. This SANYO...

Our Settings We started in 'Natural' mode, because it has an excellent gamma curve, which needs no further work. There are two points that do need correcting though: the colour temperature and the gamut, or colour space. There are fewer options...

För 20 000 kronor är det svårt att förstå vad man får för pengarna och man köper PLV-Z4000. Åtminstone av vårt testexemplar att döma. Med reservation för att det kan ha haft ett fel är...

Til 18.000 kroner er det vanskelig å skjønne hva man faktisk får for pengene med Sanyo PLV-Z4000. I hvert fall hvis vi skal dømme etter vårt testeksemplar. Med forbehold om at vårt eksemplar kan ha hatt en feil, er den alt...

International Review By AudioVideoHD on 85

Le Sanyo PLV-Z4000 n'est pas un simple Z3000 dont on aurait uniquement modifié l'alimentation électrique. Les modes couleurs usines, s'ils ne sont pas encore parfaits, offrent un rendu plus naturel que les générations...

Le Sanyo Z4000 est à coup sûr une réussite pour les monomaniaques de cinéma. L’image délivrée est excellente et elle tient largement la comparaison avec les ténors du genre. Mais le projecteur pâtit...

International Review By AudioVision on

Der Sanyo PLV-Z 4000 beeindruckt mit kontrastreichen, knackscharfen Bildern und guter Bewegungsschärfe. Allerdings liefert er entweder eher dunkle Bilder mit erweitertem Farbraum oder helle Bilder mit leicht abweichenden Farben. Die vielen Regler...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

La mise à l'échelle perfectible et l'absence de mode de fluidification efficace de lecture vidéo sont les deux points faibles qui font perdre une étoile au PLV-Z4000. Si vous n'en avez que faire, sautez sur ce projecteur....

Le Z4000 est le modèle home cinéma le plus abouti de Sanyo. Toutefois, le constructeur arrive après la bataille avec ce nouveau modèle car les technologies employées sont pour la plupart déjà âgées d’un...
