So what’s the difference between the TOTO G450 and a TOTO Neorest?

We’ll answer that question and more with our guide to the TOTO G450 vs Neorest. 

TOTO Neorest vs TOTO G450

The main areas of difference between the TOTO Washlet G450 and a Neorest are the following:

  • Features
  • Design
  • Warranty
  • Price

Here’s a feature comparison chart for the TOTO G450 vs TOTO Neorest:

As you can see from the chart above, the main feature differences between a Neorest and the TOTO G450 Washlet are:

  • Pulsating cleans 
  • Wide front wash
  • Night-light

We’ll check out all the TOTO Neorest specs and TOTO G450 specs and go into more detail on each of these feature differences below. 


For those of you that don’t know, EWATER is electrolyzed water that serves as a powerful natural cleaning agent. 

The lower PH of the electrolyzed EWATER is more acidic and naturally cleans the bidet wand and bowl automatically before and after each use.

This is one of the major feature differences between the TOTO Washlet G450 and a Neorest bidet toilet. 

For some reason, TOTO decided not to include this coveted feature on the Washlet G450, even though other popular TOTO Washlets like the TOTO S7A and TOTO S550e both have this feature. 

All TOTO Neorests like the Neorest RS, Neorest AS, Neorest LS and Neorest NX1 all have EWATER rinsing on the bidet wand and toilet bowl. 

The Neorest RS is the only one of those Neorest models that does not also have additional EWATER rinsing underneath the toilet seat as well.

Pulsating Cleanse

Another feature difference is the lack of pulsating wash on the TOTO G450 toilet. While maybe not an absolutely necessary feature for some, having this massage feature is quite nice to have. 

For those suffering from any bum related dilemmas like hemorrhoids, anal fissures or woman recovering from pregnancy, a soothing pulsating massage wash can be a coveted feature.

Wide Front Wash

While we’re talking about woman and bidets, it’s worth mentioning that the TOTO G450 Washlet also lacks the wide front wash mode of TOTO Neorest toilets. 

Most front wash modes on bidet seats is honestly lacking. Most woman we talk to don’t even bother using this feature on most bidet seats.

Having a wide front wash mode makes having the front wash feature worth having in the first place.

The last main feature difference between the TOTO Washlet G450 and a Neorest is that the TOTO G450 does not have a night-light.

A night-light is handy to have for just about everyone and essential for others. Once you have one illuminating your toilet bowl, it becomes hard to live without.

Most TOTO Washlets and all TOTO Neorest toilets have this basic feature. 

It’s perplexing why TOTO would leave this convenient feature off an expensive model like the Washlet G450.  

Design Differences 

The TOTO G450 looks very similar to any of the older Neorest models that were recently discontinued like the TOTO Neorest AH or Neorest RH

One thing separating the TOTO G450 from some of the newer Neorest models is the lack of a seamless seat.

When TOTO rolled out the new Washlet S7A and newer Neorest models, a gap under the toilet seat that collected dirt and grime was eliminated, making the seat “seamless.”

The TOTO G450 does not have this updated seamless seat. 

There are also some differences in dimensions. While the seat width and length are basically identical, the seated height between the G450 Washlet and the newer Neorest toilets is different.

  • TOTO G450 seated height: 17.31”
  • TOTO Neorest RS: 17.69”

It should be noted that the Neorest LS seated height is also 17.31” (the same as the TOTO G450) so not all Neorest toilets have a higher seated height. 

The Neorest LS seat however, is 1” longer and 1” wider than the TOTO G450 and Neorest RS and Neorest AS.

Another major difference in deciding between TOTO Neorest vs TOTO G450 is the warranty coverage.

The TOTO Washlet G450 has a 1 year limited warranty while a Neorest has a 3 year limited warranty.

Neorest vs TOTO G450 Wrap-up

While at first glance, the TOTO Washlet G450 may appear to be the same as the Neorest bidet toilet, there are some fundamental differences.   

Here’s a quick wrap-up of some of the main differences. 

What does a Neorest have that the TOTO G450 does not? 

  • 3 year warranty
  • Seamless seat
  • Night-light
  • Wide Front (female) wash
  • Pulsating wash mode

If those were some features you don’t think you could live without, we would recommend looking into the Neorest RS
