10 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

Expert review site PC Mag scored this projector 70 out of 100.

Good Size

A number of people said in their reviews that the product was thin. Pcmag.com mentioned on expert website PC Mag “The Casio Slim XJ-A247 is a lightweight data projector with Wi-Fi connectivity” in their review of the Casio XJ-A247.

Good Technical Features

One customer who bought it wrote that it had good features. Pcmag.com scored the Casio XJ-A247 70 out of 100 and mentioned on expert review site PC Mag “The Casio Slim XJ-A247 ($1,209.99) is a lightweight data projector that includes some nifty features, such as a generous 2X zoom” in their Casio XJ-A247 review.

Good Connectivity

One person who reviewed it thought it was wifi compatible.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The XJ-A247 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including the Casio XJ-M146 which is cheaper; or the XJ-M156, or the XJ-A147 ($1,109.99) both from Casio which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XJ-A247 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the XJ-A252 ($950.99), the XJ-M156, and the XJ-A147 ($1,109.99) all from Casio which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have optical zooms of between 1.5x and 2x. The Casio XJ-A247 has one of the bigger optical zooms (2 times zoom factor) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the XJ-A247 the weights range from 980g to 27kg, and the average weight is 7.2kg. At only 2.3 kilograms, the XJ-A247 is quite light compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the XJ-A247.

4 Reasons Against

Poor 3D Picture Quality

One Casio XJ-A247 owner wrote in their reviews that the product did not have a good 3D picture quality. Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “Can't project 3D content”.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that came out around the same time as the XJ-A247 do not support Full HD projection. The XJ-A247 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the XJ-A247, the XJ-A247 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Casio XJ-M146 which is also cheaper.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 35dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the XJ-A147 ($1,109.99), the XJ-A242 ($1,048.99), or the XJ-A142 ($711.99) all from Casio.
