Sanyo PLV-Z4000 Projector Review
The PLV-Z4000 exhibits rather excellent shadow detail performance. It slightly bests the Panasonic PT-AE4000, and a touch more so, beats the Epson Home Cinema 6500UB. And all of them are at least very good. Shadow detail performance is a non-issue with the PLV-Z4000, it reveals plenty.
The next set of comparison images is from Space Cowboys. This is a very dark scene with Clint Eastwood, on Blu-ray disc. The photos are intentionally way overexposed. Look for the blacks in the shades, and the details in those shades in the form of the white trim. (At this level of overexposure, don’t even worry about the skin tones, as in these type of photos they always look terrible, and way oversaturated/too high contrast).
Again, from Space Cowboys, this is a cropped image. The right side is very bright (so dynamic irises will not be effective). The PLV-Z4000 (top left) shows really good shadow detail in the dark areas of the satellite. Next to it on the first row, is the older Z3000. Those images are followed by the Sony VPL-VW60 and the Sanyo PLV-Z700 on the right.
