Hi, Although I've only recently joined the forum, I've been reading alot of stuff on here for a few months albeit mostly regarding the Sanyo PLV Z3. I've currently got an Infocus LP350 (okay don't laugh) and its lamp has started to show signs of flickering, which means it'll no doubt fail (aka BOOM! for us LP350 owners) so I'm looking at buying a new PJ rather than replace the lamp. The bad points of my current projector are as follows.... 1- Black level is sorta none existant. 2- Artifacts on moving objects are a tad annoying. 3- Visual banding on bright lights against dark backgrounds etc. (suns in scifi films) 4- Terrible light leakage, its much nicer with some ambient light than total darkness. 5- Lamps rarely last the rated 2000 hours, had no more than 1200 hours myself. 6- And, its bloody noisy! Does anyone have any experience with one of these projectors and if possible could confirm whether I would see a difference with a new Sanyo PLV Z3? I paid about the same price a few years back as the new Sanyo would cost now, but I'd be willing to pay a little more if required to get a noticable improvement. thanks in advance for any help.
