Toshiba WX2200U

Toshiba this morning released the TLP-WX2200U, targeting everyone from home theater enthusiasts to office users. The 3LCD-based unit projects at a 1280x800 resolution that matches the native sharpness of many widescreen notebooks and is also sharp enough to drive 720p HD video from modern game consoles, Blu-Ray, or HD DVD. Regardless of the exact setting, the projector is said to be bright for its class at 2,200 lumens and clear with a 600:1 contrast ratio. This is also one of the few projectors with explicit digital video out, Toshiba says; a VGA output relays the feed to a computer monitor or HDTV for help in presentations.

Input for full-resolution signals is provided through VGA with component video handled through adapters. RCA and S-video provide video from strictly analog sources. The WX2200U throws its image as close as 4.2 feet and up to 300 inches in size; a password lock to prevent theft is also standard with the projector, should be available immediately from Toshiba's supply chain for $999.

    "sharpness"

    "matches the native sharpness of many widescreen notebooks and is also sharp enough to drive 720p HD video"

    Uh, the word is "resolution". Sharpness is something else entirely.

    an no HDMI

    So no Hi-Def content [especially with that video out...] So why peddle it as supporting HD for Blue-Ray or HD-DVD...
