'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

A rebadged version of InFocus's ScreenPlay LS110, this projector offers all the same features, advantages and disadvantages of the InFocus-branded model. There's only one important difference: its list price is considerably lower.

The only physical difference between the MT5 and the ScreenPlay LS110 is the colour of the case -- white for the Toshiba product, grey for the InFocus. Otherwise the two products are identical.

The most important distinction between the two products is the list price. Toshiba appears to be selling this projector for 25 per cent less than InFocus. Since there's no difference in the hardware, the only possible justification for this is better support and warranty terms. This doesn't appear to be the case, so we'd recommend you get the Toshiba version of this projector and save yourself some cash.
