Last year Hermes rated the product 7 stars and said on Bhphotovideo.com “I was greatly surprised with the portability, easy setup slim and the expected life of the light source (by the way it is not a lamp!) The sharpness”.

Supports Wi-Fi

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support Wi-Fi and we think the XJ-M256, the XJ-M246, and the XJ-M146 all from Casio which has better reviews is also worth considering.
