Sanyo releasing PLV-Z5 LCD projector

Sanyo looks set to release a followup to its PLV-Z4 projector soon, with the shockingly-named PLV-Z5 bumping the specs in all the right areas -- or at least about as much as you can expect at this price point. Pumping out a 1280×720 resolution, this one promises a 7,500:1 contrast ratio, 1,100 lumens brightness, and a welcome second HDMI input in addition to the requisite line up of component (two of 'em, too), composite, s-video, and VGA. Look for this one to be available later this month in both black and silver variations for €1,799 (about $2,300).
