So why is there such a big difference in price between the Neorest LS and Neorest NX1? Read on to learn more.
This is one of the main areas in which these two top models differ and it’s also the reason why there’s a large price discrepancy between the two.
The TOTO Neorest NX1 has a sleek, smooth, modern look that is unmatched by any toilet on this planet. It looks as though it might have fallen from some extraterrestrial palace in the stars.
While still looking luxurious and opulent, the Neorest LS has a more angular aesthetic that might not be as appealing to some as the TOTO NX1.
Aesthetics aside, there are some more practical reasons to justify the jump in price between the TOTO LS vs NX1.
The toilet seat area on the TOTO Neorest NX1 is both wider and longer than the Neorest LS. This provides a more spacious, comfortable sitting experience and is a big reason for the difference in price.
TOTO Neorest NX1
- Seat Width: 18.4”
- Seat length: 31.5”
TOTO Neorest LS
- Seat width: 16.2”
- Seat length: 28.6”
Besides being longer and wider, the seat on the TOTO NX1 also curves up in the back and offers more comfort and support as well.
When deciding between the TOTO NX1 vs LS, seat comfort is where the Neorest NX1 really seems to stand out.
While not a major design difference, it should be noted that the Neorest NX1 is heavier than the Neorest LS. This could be due to the general size differences between the two models.
- Neorest LS weight: 112 lbs
- Neorest NX1 weight: 141 lbs
Trim Color Options
As we mentioned earlier, the TOTO Neorest LS is replacing the Neorest 700H. One of the upgrades between these two models is availability of different trim color options for the TOTO LS.
Now, if there is a color accent you’d like to incorporate into your overall bathroom decor, you can match that with the Neorest LS. The new trim color options are available in:
- Silver (comes standard)
- Black (price upgrade)
- Nickel (price upgrade)
With the Neorest NX1, there are no trim color options. The toilet comes in standard white/cotton only.

As you can see, all of the main bidet cleaning and convenience functions are shared by both units.
What it really comes down to when deciding between these two are:
- Appearance and design
- Seat space
If you or a family member require more space when sitting, then the Neorest NX1 might be a better option. Of the three less expensive Neorest toilets, the TOTO LS is the largest one. The Neorest AS is the next largest, followed by the Neorest RS.

It should be noted that there are less differences between the Neorest LS vs NX1 then with the Neorest 700H and the NX1. Whereas the TOTO 700H didn't have quite as powerful of a flush or a rimless bowl design, those differences are now eliminated.
