8 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the XJ-A251 will cost only £71 over 1 year to run, which is in the cheapest 9% of all 86 projectors of a comparable type and age.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XJ-A251 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the XJ-A251 also have a built-in speaker.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Casio XJ-A251 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The worst resolution of all similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the XJ-A251 is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the XJ-A251 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all projectors of a comparable age and type to the XJ-A251 the resolution ranges from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

Projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-A251 have lamp service lives of between 200h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 5,200h. The XJ-A251 has a quite long lamp service life (20,000 hours) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Narrow

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the XJ-A251 have widths of between 120mm and 540mm. At only 297 millimeters, the XJ-A251 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the XJ-A251.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the Casio XJ-A251 is one of the lighter data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the XJ-A251 amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lightest projector of a similar spec and age to the XJ-A251 is 370g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

Across all the projectors of this spec and age the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 37dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB. When compared to other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the XJ-A251 that we have assessed the noise level in economy mode of, the XJ-A251's noise level in economy mode of only 26 decibels is one of the quietest.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XJ-A251 do not support Full HD projection. The XJ-A251 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The XJ-A251 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC U310W.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The XJ-A251 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the XJ-A251 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W, or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro is also worth considering.

Quite Small Lamp Power

When compared to other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the XJ-A251 that we have checked, the Casio XJ-A251's lamp power of only 170 Watts is one of the smallest. The average lamp power of projectors of a comparable age and type to the XJ-A251 is 320W, and the lamp power range from 170W to 4,000W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The Casio XJ-A251 has a quite low RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the XJ-A251. The lowest RMS rated power of similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1W and the highest is 19W.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the XJ-A251 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the XJ-A251 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The XJ-A251 is a one USB 2.0 port data projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the XJ-A251 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.
