8 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Good

This projector received an expert rating of 80% from PC Mag. It seems that multimedia projector experts are not that keen on this multimedia projector.

Good Picture Quality

One Casio XJ-M156 reviewer concluded that it had good colour saturation.

Robust

One Casio XJ-M156 owner who reviewed the product reckoned that it was well made. In October last year Pc Mag gave the Casio XJ-M156 a score of 4 stars and mentioned “Solid data-image quality”.

Good Product Quality

One customer reckoned that this projector was good quality.

Supports Wi-Fi

Unlike most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the XJ-M156 which do not support wi-Fi, the Casio XJ-M156 supports wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Casio XJ-A147[plb_2469836_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The XJ-M156 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 28 decibels) amongst 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The noise level (economic mode)s of 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 28dB to 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.

5 Reasons Against

Unexceptional Brand

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

Does Not Support 3D

Most multimedia projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D. The Casio XJ-M156 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support full HD. The XJ-M156 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the XJ-M156 have optical zooms of between 1.5x and 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.7x. At only 1.5 times zoom factor, the Casio XJ-M156 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the Casio XJ-M156 has a fairly small matrix size compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XJ-M156. The average matrix size of projectors that are a comparable age to the XJ-M156 is 0.61", and the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.7".
