SANYO Introduces New Wide XGA High-Brightness High Performance Projectors


Sanyo has just announced a few new XGA Projectors that are 16:10 widescreen with 1200×800 resolution. I wouldn’t consider them inexpensive, the least costly is $4,095 while the most costly is $5,645. They have varying specs but overall they’re similar. They all have HDMI, DVI, Composite and Component along with S-Video as well.
