Toshiba Announces DVD-Projector Combo, and New 2700-Lumen DLP Projector

We’ve already been covering the Toshiba TDP-ET20U for probably six months, partly because this is the only DVD-projector combo that rivals Optoma’s MovieTime for a fantastic design. Well now, Toshiba is officially announcing the product and also a ship date of September and that the company is targeting both home and office users.
Also new is that Toshiba says this projector can yield a 100-inch diagonal image from just 3.9 feet away

The specs are 480p resolution, 1,100 lumens, 2000:1 contrast ratio, and it weighs just over 10 pounds, and has widescreen format with adjustable aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3. HDMI is included and additional ports include an S-video, composite video and component video via three RCA jacks, as well as RGB for PC connection. It has 5.1-channel Dolby Pro Logic surround sound.
Price is $1,399 — well within the price range of the other competitors.

The new TDP-TW100U is a DLP projector specified at 2700 ANSI lumens, 2000:1 contrast ratio, and XGA resolution with 802.11g wireless functionality.
It has one-touch setup, USB thumbnail drive for storing presentations in JPEG format, blackboard function that allows for wall color adjustment, instant power off and digital zoom.

MSRP is $1,699 (but the website says $1,599), and it is available now.
