Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XJ-A142 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the XJ-A142.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the XJ-A147, or the XJ-A242 ($1,048.99) both from Casio.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Casio XJ-A252 ($971.99).

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the XJ-A142 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 35dB noise level data projectors and we think the XJ-A147, and the XJ-A242 ($1,048.99) both from Casio which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Casio XJ-A247 ($906.99) (35dB).

With a projector brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Casio XJ-A142 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the XJ-A142.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the XJ-A147, and the XJ-A242 ($1,048.99) both from Casio is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Casio XJ-A252 ($971.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens).
