Easy to Use

One Casio XJ-A257 reviewer said in their reviews that the product was easy to use. Last year expert website Chip.com.my wrote in their review of the Casio XJ-A257 “The CASIO XJ-A257 projector is a semi-portable projector that shines bright and is easy to use”.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Casio XJ-A257 supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the XJ-A247[pl_2731263_price], or the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price] both from Casio.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the XJ-A257, the XJ-A257 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the XJ-A247[pl_2731263_price], or the XJ-A252[pl_2757589_price] both from Casio which has better reviews.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the Casio XJ-UT310WN[plb_2386206_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 commonly supported graphics resolution on similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many data projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 2 times zoom factor, the XJ-A257 has one of the biggest optical zooms amongst 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average optical zoom of 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 1.7x.

Chart Edit

Narrow

1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have widths of between 200mm and 500mm, and the average width is 340mm. With a width of only 297 millimeters, the XJ-A257 is one of the narrower 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the XJ-A257 amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Inferior Sound Quality

One Casio XJ-A257 owner wrote that it did not have good sound quality. Chip.com.my mentioned “Audio is weak for a projector of its brightness”.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the XJ-A257, the XJ-A257 does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Casio XJ-A257 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

We think this Casio data projector looks expensive compared to other projectors of a comparable age and spec. We checked 12 projectors of a comparable age and spec and they range in price from £812 to £1,294.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The Casio XJ-A257 has one of the louder noise levels (35 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the noise levels range from 31dB to 39dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

We compared this projector to all the other 35dB noise level projectors and we think the XJ-A247[pl_2731263_price], the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], and the XJ-A252[pl_2757589_price] all from Casio which has better reviews is also worth considering.
