6 Reasons For

Supports Wi-Fi

Unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the XJ-A256 which do not support wi-Fi, the XJ-A256 supports wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which support wi-Fi to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 1761W ($549.99), and the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

The optical zoom of the XJ-A256 of 2 times zoom factor is one of the biggest amongst multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average optical zoom of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1.6x.

Across all the projectors that have been around for around the same time as the XJ-A256 the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,200h. At 20,000 hours, the XJ-A256 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the XJ-A256.

6 Reasons Against

Unexceptional Brand

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average projectors from Casio have unexceptional ratings from users and experts.

Does Not Support Full HD

The XJ-A256 does not support full HD. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the XJ-A256 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00) which also has a higher rating.
