Toshiba TDP-MT200 Projector Review


Toshiba TDP-MT200 Wide VGA DLP Projector, featuring the DMD Dark Chip, is a good start to a build Home Theater. With more color segments on the Color Wheel, and a higher Vertical Sync rate and digital input, the rainbow effect is virtually eliminated....

Overall, the MT500 is a superb video projector as long as you do not push it beyond its limitations. For those who have a dark viewing space and want or need an image that is 90" diagonal or less, the MT500 represents a great value for the money.

Toshiba TDP-MT200


Part of Toshiba's home projector range, the TDPMT200 is specifically designed to be a movie projector. This largely comes from the use of the widescreen DLP technology, which is perfect for showing films

Great film performance, Quiet in operation, No 'rainbow effect'

Only really designed for movies, Mac images not that sharp, Menu system confusing and slow to use

An otherwise excellent unit marred by its desktop display results and a slightly haughty price tag

Toshiba TDP-MT200


DLP projectors have recently begun to appear in homes around the country, as they become ever more popular due to their price. Unfortunately, in many ...

Excellent colour Reproduction, Bright image, Good Contrast Ratio

Slight Flyscreen, Long throw distance

There isnt much to complain about with the MT200, If you are looking for an excellent projector for a large room this is the best option, but the short throw distance might put people off who want a giant screen.

Toshiba MT500 Projector


There was a time when home cinema was the realm of the true enthusiast. I can vividly remember ordering LaserDiscs from the most obscure sources, just so I could watch high-quality movies at home. For me VHS was so appallingly bad that I couldn't bring...

Product Specifications

Toshiba MT200 features DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology, which provides premium picture quality in a small, lightweight package. The DLP projector employs a DMD (digital micromirror device) to create images. DLP is a reflective technology, which results in higher ANSI Lumens and Contrast Ratios in comparison to other technologies. The result is a bright image that doesn't sacrifice sharpness or color. The projector is native 16 x 9, which works best with the newest video sources. With a simple push of a button this projector can also display 4 x 3 images to accommodate non-widescreen video sources. The MT200 will accept HD (1080i and 720p) signals but will scale them and display them at 480p. Even though maximum resolution is 480p, the projector will accept the input of higher and lower resolution video sources. The 6 Segment Color Wheel helps ensure natural, saturated colors with great contrast while reducing the rainbow effect. Digital Keystone Correction allows for flexibility in installation and positioning. The MT200 can be placed above or below (+/- 15 degrees) the ideal mounting position with minimal video distortion.
