7 Reasons For

Good Size

Several customers who purchased the Casio XJ-A242 agreed that it was thin. Expert review site Toptenreviews.com wrote in their review “The CASIO Slim XJ-A242 is a slim, portable hybrid DLP projector that users laser” . Toptenreviews.com also mentioned “The CASIO Slim XJ-A242 is not only lightweight.”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Casio XJ-A242 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the XJ-A242.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], or the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price] both from Casio is also worth considering.
