    Ok troops. My faithful Sanyo Z2 has kicked the bucket after 8 years of service. I want it's replacement to have an s-video input to accommodate the existing cable ( I really want to avoid ripping up floorboards to run another cable). I need suggestions around the £500 mark (maybe go to £600). Not fussed about making the move to DLP technology. Will be used for home cinema viewing.
    Thanks.

    Hi
    I will be selling my sanyo plvz3000 1080p projector soon. Just replaced it with a new epson 4k model.
    If interested ill let you know when i advertise it.
    I have 2 in perfect condition, calibrated and fully serviced and cleaned recently.
    With you being a sanyo z2 owner i dont need to tell you about how good these are for home cinema! I remember going from a z3 and the z3000 was a big step up in performance

    Personally, with that budget I would make the effort to upgrade to HDMI. Short term pain for long term gain and all that! Plus as mentioned above I wouldn't discount DLP without seeing it first, you might be pleasantly surprised. :)

    I've just bought the BENQ W1070 for £399, features S-Video and two HDMI's, lense shift, 1080p, 3d etc. It's my first projector, but I'm extremely impressed with it and it got 9/10 on Trusted Reviews (was originally around £1000 I think)
