The Downside
I was disappointed at the discovery that the HDMI set-up was incorrect. I wouldn’t harp on this if it weren’t for the fact that I know most people setting this projector up will not catch this, and therefore most folks will not experience the full potential of the PLV-Z2000. The primary and secondary colors, particularly red and green, were way off. This is one of my pet peeves, as it drastically impacts the overall color accuracy of a display, and virtually all projectors under $30,000 fail this test, with the exception of my reference SP-H710AE 720p one-chip DLP projector.

Although the Sanyo PLV-Z2000 does have some issues with color accuracy, it’s important to remember nearly all projectors under about $30,000 have similar issues, albeit not quite as severe. I think the issue with the HDMI set-up being wrong at the factory default is a notable problem, and I hope that Sanyo addresses this, considering how easy it is to correct. With that said, the Sanyo PLV-Z2000 is pretty impressive when you compare it to the competition. For example, it definitely will give the Sony VPL-VW50 a run for its money in terms of clarity, black-level performance and light output. The feature package and connectivity are both comprehensive for a front projector. If you are on a very tight budget and want to get into front projection, then the $2,499 or less PLV-Z2000 should be on your shopping list.
