- Low-cost DLP
- Dark, confusing menu system
The TDP-S25 improves on its S20 predecessor, but still lags behind competitors.
Price$ 1,998.70 (AUD)
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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
