Although these newfangled projectors with document cameras flanking their sides get hammered in the style department, we can't deny the extra utility for the conference room, biology lab, or off-the-cuff presentation, and Toshiba
is kicking out yet another rendition with budget-conscience consumers in mind. Sure, the company's TLP-XC2500U
was a fine performer, but since its new TDP-SC35U is nearly half the price, we doubt the former is now worth the price of admission. Nevertheless, Tosh's newest rendition sports a 800 x 600 resolution, 2,000 ANSI lumens, DLP
technology, 2,000:1 contrast ratio, and of course, a 648 x 468 resolution camera on the flexible swingarm. As for inputs, you'll find a pair of VGA along with a single composite and S-Video, as well as stereo in / out and the ability to handle both NTSC and PAL. While not particularly portable, it weighs in at a manageable 8.6 pounds and touts a 14.5- x 10.2- x 3.9-inch enclosure, so making the trip between board rooms shouldn't be all that burdensome. Regardless, Toshiba is hoping to catch more than a few corporate upgrade dollars by pricing this one right, as this multifaceted
PJ will only set you back $899, and is available as we speak.
