Panasonic AE700/ Sanyo Z3 Comparison

Las night we posted an update to the recent reviews of the Panny AE700 andSanyo Z3 which includes a comparative evaluation of their relative strengths and weaknesses.

Sanyo Z3 Review Posted

We have just posted the review of the Sanyo PLV-Z3. These are exciting times in the home theater projector business, with all of these hot new models showing up. The Sanyo Z3 is an improvement in many ways over the Z2, and it is being offered at a more aggressive $2,495 MSRP to boot ($500 less than the Z2). I was hoping also to post a companion article with this latest review comparing the Sanyo Z3 with the Panasonic AE700, but we've still got some final side by side evaluation to do. So that piece will be done and posted by this coming Tuesday at the latest. But reading the two reviews, you can get a lot of what that article will cover.more

New Low Cost HT Projectors

At this juncture we are seeing several new low-cost home theater projectors in various stages of release, all of which feature 1280x720 resolution LCD panels. These include the Sony VPL-HS51, the Sanyo PLV-Z3, the InFocus Screenplay 5000, as well as the Panasonic AE700 already reviewed. Each of these products has a configuration of features, capabilities, and price points that represent attractive value propositions for the consumer. Ideally, we would have review samples in place on all units and perform a comparative evaluation in shoot-out type format. Unfortunately, review units do not come available from all manufacturers at the same time.more
