Default Sanyo Announces PLV-Z4000

This should be a great LCD projector for those that will continue using 2D.

Looks like a decent unit. Anyone had any experience with Sanyo projectors?

I have been using a Sanyo PLV-Z3 720p LCD projector for the last year. I picked it up used. I am happy with the image quality but in my experience, these organic panel LCD projectors don't last long. This new Sanyo projector will surely use inorganic panels and should last much longer. Sanyo is now a subsidiary of Panasonic and I expect the projector to be very good.

It may be nice but is still a Sanyo and will not even begin to compare with Panasonic's other offerings like the PT-AE4000...

Sanyo PLV-Z4000. The projector has some nice features for the home theater enthusiast like a 65000:1 contrast ratio and 1200 ANSI lumen s of brightness.

The projector has 3LCD technology with a 120Hz refresh rate and lots of connectivity options. Connectivity includes dual HDMI 1.3b ports, component RCA, D-Sub, S-video, and composite RCA ports. A 100-inch image requires the projector to be 10 to 20 feet from the projection surface.
The only drawback is that you need a large room to get a big picture with a projector.

How so? most rooms are at least 10 ft long so the room really doesn't need to be that big. Also contrast specs are meaningless as everybody uses diff measures and cheats their numbers.

You sound like a new kid on the block.Have you seen the new Sanyo plv z4000? I am a retired and part time front projector installer and just got back from Scottsdale AZ. where I had a chance to see one. The Sanyo is far superior than any Panny except for some extra features on the Panny. Sanyo is one of the largest lcd dlp front projectors on the globe. Ever heard of Optima, Ben Q, Epson, at your local Best Buy store. Do not judge by name but go see them side by side. The Panny is a very nice unit, but not even close to Sanyo's PQ

I have seen them, side by side and the Panasonic is clearly superior. Now that Panasonic owns Sanyo maybe some of their experience and technology is being shared but I still stand by my original professional assessment.

Unless you know someone you could of never seen the Sanyo cause it is not on display and not out yet, so who are you kidding. Just because you own one you are bragging. There are over a dozen dlp, lcd, and dila that will blow the Panny away. All the Epsons have better blacks, the dlps leave then=m in the dust with their 3d image and 6 color wheel, the Optomas are better, all the Mitsubishis have a much sharper image, The Sony dxr units are better ,and the Jvcs dila;s leave the panny in another class. Next week projector central will start talking about the ne Sanyo plv z400 and people will probably have to wait 3 to 6 months to get one and price will increase. I feel sorry for you that you bought something too fast without waiting. Better luck next time, but overall it is a good projector for the money.

Lets see, all of my Panasonics outperform the Sanyo so which Panasonic are you saying I should sell, the 85" plasma, the 58" plasma, the PT-AE4000, the 42" plasma?

Wow...there's a lot of testosterone being sprayed in this thread. I am looking forward to PCs review of the Sanyo unit. In addition to the reviews, PC has at least two previous articles dedicated to head-to-head comparisons between the Sanyo Z and Panny AE series. I hope they continue that tradition.
