This data projector received an expert rating of 70% from PC Mag.

Good Connectivity

Robust

One Casio XJ-M246 owner thought the Casio XJ-M246 was well made. Pcmag.com scored this projector 4 stars and said on expert website PC Mag “The Casio Signature XJ-M246 is a hybrid laser/LED data projector with solid data-image quality” in their review.

Good Product Quality

One Casio XJ-M246 reviewer who reviewed the Casio XJ-M246 thought it was good quality.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The XJ-M246 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this type and age do not support WiFi connectivity.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including the XJ-A147 ($1,109.99), or the XJ-M156 both from Casio which has better reviews.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Casio XJ-M146 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XJ-M246 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the XJ-M246.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the XJ-A142 ($711.99), or the XJ-A242 ($1,048.99) both from Casio which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Casio XJ-M141 ($522.99).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level
