Sanyo is a Japanese consumer electronics multinational company. As of 2009, Panasonic holds over 50 percent stake in Sanyo and is likely to acquire it completely in the coming years. Consequently there mightn't be many new projector models from Sanyo, and the ones available now, are likely to dwindle in number.

However, our list of the best projectors is filtered based upon the top rated LCD projectors released by Sanyo over the last year. Additionally, the best Sanyo projectors typically come with a lumen count of 1200 or more which is fine for home cinema rooms with little ambient light

    When you use projectors in classrooms, you want ruggedness and reliability with minimum maintenance. You also want to set up and go with no delays for image adjustment. That is exactly what you get with the PLC-XK2600, and the added bonus is excellent data and video performance. You can find XGA projectors for less money, but you will have a hard time matching the PLC-XK2600's knockout images and low cost of ownership.


  • The Sanyo PLC-XK2600 is a decent general-purpose projector. It doesn't have any killer features and doesn't excel in any single area. Nor is it especially portable. Nonetheless, the £450 price tag is modest, and if you want an all-rounder with sufficient brightness to let it work in light rooms, the PLC-XK2600 is a safe buy.

    - The image of Gandalf is very natural looking, whereas pre-calibration it definitely was not as good.

    - It is easy to unsnap the grate to access the filter for periodic cleaning, as shown in the photo above.
    - Its overall image quality is solid, and contrast is competitive by last year's 1080p LCD standards.
    - It is possible to dial in a picture averaging about 6500K with relatively uniform gray scale tracking.

    - Colors were bright and popped, and shadow detail was most of the way there.
    - Brightness uniformity was very good, measuring 82% to the average corner and 74% to the worst corner.

    - The goal is to maintain as much brightness as possible, but sacrificing a few lumens to make the overall color accuracy more watchable.
    - Pixel visibility is very good for a 720p 3LCD projector.

    - Color was pleasant and accurate out of the box using the "Low 1" color temperature setting, and a bit of fine tuning makes the Z60 look even better.
    - Saturation was strong without being overdone, and overall the Z60 gives images a life-like feel.
    - The Cinema 720 is capable of serious light output - 482 ANSI lumens in "Natural" mode, and 727 in "Living" mode.
    - Visible pixelation on the Z60 disappeared when sitting at 1.2 times the screen width or greater.

    - The projectors are similar in brightness, in brightest mode, with the Sanyo having a slight edge.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - The Sanyo Z3000 is significant in that it is the first home theater projector to offer 5:5 pulldown, and one of the few thus far to offer an on-board frame interpolation capability.


  • Sanyo's affordable 1080p front projector has its share of flaws, but still represents a good value in its category.


  • As with the Z3000 with which it shares, well, pretty much everything, the Z4000 is capable of being a very accomplished projector for its money. Itâ??s just a shame it needs arguably professional levels of calibration before youâ??ll get anything like the best out of it.
