For all around use, the PLC-WXE45 is hard to beat. Home theater users will appreciate its 1280 x 800 (16:10) resolution and ability to project high-def images from DVD, cable, and satellite sources. Boardrooms and classrooms will warm up to its instant-on feature— as soon as it’s plugged in, it’s on; no need to press any buttons and no need to let the projector cool down before turning it off (simply unplug it).
The PLC-WXE45 will also project on non-standard surfaces, such as blackboards and color boards; Sanyo’s Color Board Mode allows the hue to be adjusted so that the picture appears to be projected onto a white surface. Its short throw lens and wide aspect ratio are a big part of the secret.
