5 Reasons For

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The XJ-M256 supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the XJ-M256 which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think because of it's better review score, the Casio XJ-A147 ($1,109.99) is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the XJ-M246, or the XJ-M146 both from Casio.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The XJ-M256 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Casio XJ-M146 is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection. The XJ-M256 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

Across all the 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the XJ-M256 the power consumption in economy mode range from 110W to 150W. At 145 Watts, the Casio XJ-M256 has a quite high power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the XJ-M256.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

Projectors of this age and spec have offsets of between 33% and 120%, and the average offset is 54%. At only 33 percent, the Casio XJ-M256 has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-M256.

4 Other reasons to consider the Casio XJ-M256

Released Over Two Years Ago

This data projector was released over two years ago.

Casio Projectors Have OK Reviews

Whilst Casio is one of the ok data projector brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, Casio has unexceptional reviews specifically for its 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Casio XJ-M256 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XJ-M256.

Alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Casio XJ-M156.

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the XJ-M256 has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the XJ-M256.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the Casio XJ-M156 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Casio XJ-M146 (33dB).
