One Industry Award

Easy to Use

One customer considered that the Casio XJ-A257 was easy to use. Expert website Chip.com.my wrote “The CASIO XJ-A257 projector is a semi-portable projector that shines bright and is easy to use” in their Casio XJ-A257 review.

Nice Design

One person reckoned that it was good looking.

Good Size

One Casio XJ-A257 owner said in their reviews that the product was thin. Last year expert website Chip.com.my wrote in their review of the Casio XJ-A257 “Although lacking in inputs the projector makes it up with great projections and a slim elegant design that will rarely leave people wanting more.(previously p”.

Good Product Quality

One Casio XJ-A257 reviewer mentioned in their reviews that it was good quality. Chip.com.my said “Good data-image quality” in their Casio XJ-A257 review.

Good Environmental Credentials

One Casio XJ-A257 reviewer concluded that the Casio XJ-A257 was good in terms of power usage. Chip.com.my wrote “As technology advances throughout the years, one of the biggest goals in technology is energy efficiency”.

Supports Wi-Fi

The XJ-A257 supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XJ-A257 do not support wi-Fi.

Other projectors which support wi-Fi currently available which you might want to consider include the XJ-A247[pl_2731263_price], or the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price] both from Casio which has better reviews.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Casio XJ-UT310WN[plb_2386206_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XJ-A257 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the XJ-A257 also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the XJ-A247[pl_2731263_price], or the XJ-A252[pl_2757589_price] both from Casio.

Other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at include the Casio XJ-UT310WN[plb_2386206_price].

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

Chart Edit

When compared to other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the optical zoom of the Casio XJ-A257 of 2 times zoom factor is one of the biggest. The smallest optical zoom of 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-A257 is 1.5x, the biggest is 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.7x.

5 Reasons Against

Casio Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Casio projectors and also specifically for Casio 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Casio had unexceptional reviews compared to other brands.

Inferior Sound Quality

One person who purchased the product mentioned that it did not have good sound quality. Chip.com.my wrote “Audio is weak for a projector of its brightness”.

Does Not Support 3D

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The XJ-A257 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the XJ-A257 also do not support full HD.

At 35 decibels, the Casio XJ-A257 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. Projectors that were released more than two years ago have noise levels of between 31dB and 39dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 35dB noise level data projectors currently available including the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price], or the XJ-A142[pl_2571989_price] all from Casio which has better reviews.
