Sanyo PLV-Z2000 replacement advice


Active Member
My 2008 Sanyo PLV-Z2000 is up for replacement. I am after a high brightness PJ with vertical lens shift. The top of the picture must be 45 cm under the ceiling (see attached picture). The PJ sits in the ceiling in our living room with limited ambient light control and is used for daytime sports/football besides movie nights. Epson EH-TW7000 seems to be a good choice. Any other cheaper suggestions?

I still have my z2000, still does a good job. Having looked around for a replacement I just can’t do it yet in the price range I have. The BenQ w2700 is the one I would choose but the fan noise is putting me off. I looked at the optima uhd42 too, I think both of those will have a vertical shift available. The optoma is bright but not great for movies due to the colours.

Thanks for input but BenQ w2700 is only 2.000 lumens, I need more :)
