Last year, Sanyo released the PLC-WTC500L projector. This device came with 5000 ANSI lumens, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution. Today, the writer from Audioholics released their review of this big screen projector. One of the first things that the writer liked was that the projector had a lot of lens options. This gives the projector some positioning flexibility in order to accommodate various room sizes. The worst problem with the projector had to be the on-screen menu selection. The writers said that this menu had to be the worst they have ever seen due to horrible graphics and a confusing setup. However for what the menu lacks, the image makes up for. The image was good straight from the box, but to adjust it to its optimal settings wasn’t too difficult either. The writers were also happy to see that the projector’s brightness, which is a lot higher than home theater projectors, which is what they are used to. The writers tested to see how good the projector was by taking it outside and displaying onto a large screen. The projector performed beautifully. The final conclusion that the writers made was, “The Sanyo PLC-WLC500L 3LCD projector is certainly a unique gem amongst a field of contenders. Awkward menu system aside, the dual-lamp selection system is genius and really takes the worry out of a mission-critical application. It’s a unique product that meets and solves a common problem. It’s also incredibly easy to maintain and, unlike other projectors we’ve used, it doesn’t need to be uninstalled in order to replace the lamp and filter. This projector really fills a gap in the industry, and at just under $7000 it provides a truly commercial solution that goes well beyond the capabilities of smaller, portable devices. The availability of up to five different lenses, ranging from short throw to long range means that Sanyo has provided limitless placement options that will work in any installations, whether for commercial, residential, or house of worship use. For anyone looking for a serious piece of equipment that has industrial features and won’t break the bank, take a good look at the PLC-WTC500L – it’s got a lot going for it.” [via Audioholics ]
