6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XJ-A252 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the XJ-A252 also have a built-in speaker.

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

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Casio XJ-A247 ($882.99).

Everything about it
This is one of the few reasonably priced projectors not using fragileshort lifetime metal halide bulbs that still delivers expected projector brightness
Very portable. About the footprint of a large laptop computer, but thicker
Reasonably quiet in maximum Eco mode, while still being plenty bright
All the inputs you'd expect: HDMI, VGA, and composite
Serial number issue
Noisy in non-Eco mode
Speaker, though workable if needed, is tinny and distorts at maximum volume
DLP type projection, so rainbow artifacts are visible
