Chart Edit

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

The XJ-A142 has one of the bigger optical zooms (2 times zoom factor) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The optical zooms of 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years range from 1.5x to 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.7x.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the projectors of a similar age and type to the XJ-A142 the widths range from 200mm to 500mm. With a width of only 297 millimeters, the XJ-A142 is one of the narrower projectors of a similar age and spec to the XJ-A142 amongst 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest 1800:1 contrast ratio data projector that has been around for more than two years is 980g heavy and the heaviest is 27kg. With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the Casio XJ-A142 is one of the lighter projectors of a similar type and age to the XJ-A142 amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

Projectors that have been available for more than two years have power consumption in economy mode of between 110W and 150W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 130W. With a power consumption in economy mode of only 115 Watts, the XJ-A142 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the XJ-A142.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Casio XJ-A142 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Casio XJ-A147 ($1,109.99) or the Casio XJ-M246 are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Casio XJ-A142 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-A142 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the XJ-A142 is 1W and the highest is 16W. The Casio XJ-A142 has one of the lower RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The Casio XJ-A142 has a quite small matrix size (only 0.55 inches) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the XJ-A142. The smallest matrix size of projectors of a similar age and type to the XJ-A142 is 0.55", the biggest is 0.7", and the average matrix size is 0.61".
