5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Casio XJ-A252 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the XJ-A252 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the XJ-A242 ($1,048.99), or the XJ-A147 both from Casio which has better reviews.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Casio XJ-A247 ($902.99) is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

The XJ-A252 has one of the bigger optical zooms (2 times zoom factor) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the XJ-A252 the optical zooms range from 1.5x to 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.7x.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the projectors that were launched more than two years ago the weights range from 980g to 27kg. With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the XJ-A252 is quite light compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the XJ-A252.

7 Reasons Against

Casio Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Projectors

Casio is one of the unremarkable multimedia projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and Casio also has unexceptional reviews for its 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The XJ-A252 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the XJ-A252 also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Casio XJ-A147.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the XJ-A252, the XJ-A252 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The XJ-A252 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the XJ-A252 also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Data projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-A252 have noise levels of between 31dB and 39dB, and the average noise level is 34dB. The XJ-A252 has one of the louder noise levels (35 decibels) amongst 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Casio XJ-A142 ($723.99) or you might consider a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the XJ-A147, or the XJ-A242 ($1,048.99) both from Casio.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The Casio XJ-A252 has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 1 Watt) amongst 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average RMS rated power of data projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-A252 is 4.6W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

At only 33 percent, the Casio XJ-A252 has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the XJ-A252. The average offset of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 54%.

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
