6 Reasons For

Good Picture Quality

Several people who bought the Casio XJ-M251 mentioned that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

A number of Casio XJ-M251 reviewers who reviewed it concluded that it was good quality.

Robust

A few Casio XJ-M251 owners who purchased the Casio XJ-M251 thought it was well made.

Pcmag.com also said “Casio's Signature XJ-M251 is a hybrid laser/LED data projector with solid data image quality, bright colors”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the XJ-M251, the XJ-M251 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Sharp XG-P560WN, and the Casio XJ-M256 ($1,194.00) is also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Poor 3D Picture Quality

One customer considered that the Casio XJ-M251 did not have a good 3D picture quality. Pc Mag mentioned “Projection of 3D content limited to PCs” in their review of this projector and scored this projector 3 stars.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of this spec and age do not support WiFi connectivity. The Casio XJ-M251 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the XJ-M146, or the XJ-M256 ($1,194.00) both from Casio which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
