Review: Toshiba TDP-ET20u projector

Wired
10 January 2007
  • Excerpt: One glance at the TDP-ET20U and you might think it capable of thrusting a salivating mandible through your chest. Black, sleek, and oblong, the rig resembles the carapace of a Xenomorph Alien. And just like its cinematic predecessor, this projector provides countless hours of entertainment.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality at close projection. One of the first projectors with built in DVD and audio. Otherworldly look. Extremely intuitive menu. HDMI connection for high quality video sources. Supports multiple file formats and DVD types.
  • Cons: Distorted image from distances more than 7 feet. No RCA audio input. No option for ceiling mount. Built-in audio won’t fill large rooms. Pronounced lag when paired with a gaming console. Gets hotter than the seventh circle of hell.

Toshiba TDP-ET20U Multimedia DVD Projector

PC Magazine
18 December 2006
  • Conclusion: Despite a built-in DVD player, the Toshiba TDP-ET20U is optimized for standard video—and does a relatively better job with it than with DVDs.
  • Pros: Native widescreen format with 480p resolution. Includes DVD player and audio system. Short throw.
  • Cons: DLP rainbow effect. Does relatively better with standard video than with DVDs. Mediocre audio quality.

Toshiba ET20 home cinema projector

Pocket Lint
3 November 2006
  • Conclusion: Overall the ET20 is an excellent projector, if a little expensive. The built-in DVD player and EST technology no doubt go some way to justifying the £1200-odd you’ll end up paying, and it is without a doubt a cinema-goers dream, both in terms of quality and convenience.
  • Pros: Built in DVD player and surround sound, effective EST projection technology, excellent picture for movies and games
  • Cons: Only 480p, no manual zoom, a little pricey

  • Conclusion: Sous ses airs de soucoupe volante, le TDP-ET20 de Toshiba abrite un lecteur DVD et un système acoustique 5.1 pour du Home Cinéma "plug & play". Tour du propriétaire…

Komplettes Heimkino: Toshiba TDP-ET20

CNET
17 April 2007
  • Summary: Der Toshiba ET20 ist eine Komplettlösung für den Heimkinoabend in kleinen Räumen. Das Plug&Play-Gerät mit integriertem DVD-Player und Lautsprechern benötigt weniger als einen Meter Projektionsabstand. Die Bilder sind jedoch nur von durchschnittlicher Qualität, den Klang kann man ganz vergessen.
  • Pros: praktisch, geringer Projektionsabstand, futuristisches Design, leichte Bedienbarkeit, akzeptable Bildqualität
  • Cons: herunterskalierte Bilder, geräuschvoller Lüfter, dürftiger Sound

Expert Review

Bigscreen
1 February 2007
  • Summary: En helt OK projektor som är snygg och praktisk med inbyggd DVD-spelare och ljud. Bra ljusflöde och färger. Lider dessvärre i konkurrensen av en hög prislapp! Cirka 5000- till max 7000 kronor hade varit perfekt anser vi, det vill säga strax under halva priset.
  • Pros: + Bra färger, + Bra ljustryck, + Bra kontrast, + Makalös zoom med Toshibas, "Extra Short Projection" ESP-teknik
  • Cons: - Låg upplösning & pixlig!, - Intern de-interlacing ej bra!, (Trots Silicon Optix chip?), - Uniformitetsproblem med skärpan
