The Toshiba's DLP technology generates a darker, more vibrant colour palette than that of an LCD projector. Its 2000:1 contrast ratio is much greater than the 400:1 and 500:1 ratios of the average LCD model. (In their favour, LCD projectors have more focused images.)
A brightness rating of 1800 ANSI lumens ensures that the projector will run well in a variety of light settings. The S25 weighs 3kg and is restricted to a native resolution support of 800 x 600 (SVGA).
The Toshiba is a little dark, and the bewildering menu system means it's hard to perfect the picture. This is a shame because the TDPS25's standard noise rating of 36dB is quieter than some of its competitors. In economy mode, the S25 can be cut to an extremely discreet 33dB.
