6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XJ-A252 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price], and the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price] both from Casio is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Casio XJ-A247[plb_2731263_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on data projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

Similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years have optical zooms of between 1.5x and 2x. The XJ-A252 has one of the bigger optical zooms (2 times zoom factor) amongst 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 297 millimeters, the XJ-A252 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the XJ-A252. The average width of projectors of this spec and age is 340mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of projectors of a similar type and age to the XJ-A252 is 7.2kg. The XJ-A252 is fairly light (only 2.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the XJ-A252.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XJ-A252 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Casio XJ-A252 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price], or the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price] both from Casio which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the XJ-A252, the Casio XJ-A252 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Casio XJ-A252 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the XJ-A252 is 31dB, the loudest is 39dB, and the average noise level is 34dB. With a noise level of 35 decibels, the Casio XJ-A252 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this projector to all the other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think a cheaper projector such as the Casio XJ-A142[plb_2571989_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], and the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price] both from Casio are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

The RMS rated power of data projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 1W to 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 4.6W. With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the XJ-A252 has one of the lower RMS rated power amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

Across all the 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the offsets range from 33% to 120%. With an offset of only 33 percent, the XJ-A252 has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-A252.

Chart Edit

Expensive

The cheapeast multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec that we found costs £812 and the most expensive costs £1,294. We think that this data projector looks expensive for a multimedia projector of a comparable spec and age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Casio XJ-A252

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the XJ-A252 is £56, which is typical compared to the other 21 multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Released Over Two Years Ago

This data projector was released over two years ago.

Casio Multimedia Projectors Have OK Reviews

Average ratings across all Casio multimedia projectors are ok, however average ratings across just Casio's 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors are unexceptional.

Chart

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the XJ-A252 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the XJ-A252.

Alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might want to look at include the Casio XJ-M156[plb_2757562_price] which has better reviews.

Everything about it
This is one of the few reasonably priced projectors not using fragileshort lifetime metal halide bulbs that still delivers expected projector brightness
Very portable. About the footprint of a large laptop computer, but thicker
Reasonably quiet in maximum Eco mode, while still being plenty bright
All the inputs you'd expect: HDMI, VGA, and composite
Serial number issue
Noisy in non-Eco mode
Speaker, though workable if needed, is tinny and distorts at maximum volume
DLP type projection, so rainbow artifacts are visible
