Toshiba's et20 all-in-one 5.1 surround DVD projector

Ryan Block, @ryan

On a home theater budget and don't have a ton of space to set up shop with a wall-filling projector? Toshiba may have the device for you: their new all-in-one et20 features a Super Close Projection lens that'll throw up a 39-inch image from 27-inches away, or 78-inch image from a mere 39-inches away. Ok, that takes care of space, but what about the rest of the theater? Well, it's got a Realta HQV image processor for moving video off its integrated DVD player, as well as an integrated 5.1 surround sound system to please the ears. How much would you expect to pay for a device that tries to take on so many tasks? Well, Toshiba's supposedly going to ask €1599 (about $1,900 US) per unit -- not at all a bad deal for an instant home theater, so long as you're not necessarily expecting high def and can keep in mind that devices that try and do too much often times wind up not doing anything particularly well.
