SANYO claims 'smallest and lightest' LCD projector


Behold! Either the woman in the photo is nine feet tall or I present to you the new champion of tiny projectors! The LP-XW60 weighs just 3.5 pounds and features a 400:1 contrast ratio with a 2,000-lumen brightness. It’s built mainly for business, not pleasure, as you’ll get a 4:3 aspect ratio and 1024×768 resolution.

SANYO was able to shrink the projector size down thanks to a new lamp that’s 39% smaller and a new lens that’s 29% smaller than the ones they’re replacing. The projector can output a 100-inch image from as close as about eight and a half feet.

It’ll cost around $800 — available next month.
