Deal Alert: Sanyo PLV-Z5 Home Theater Projector: $1094

By Big Picture Big Sound Deal Meister

As you may have recently read in our review of the Sanyo PLV-Z5 LCD projector, this generation is Sanyo's best home theater projector yet. With crisp 720p High Definition resolution, wide lens shift, 2 HDMI inputs and a 2X zoom lens, the Z5 offers excellent performance and outstanding installation flexibility.

And now it's on sale on B&H for a low $1094 with free shipping (note, you must "add to cart" to see the lower price).

Why pay through the nose for a measly 50-inch flat panel when you can have 100 inches or more with a high definition front projector?
