8 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Good

This projector received a score of 80% from projector expert review site PC Mag. Experts are not sure about this 1800:1 contrast ratio 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 WiFi Connectivity

The Casio XJ-M156 supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Casio XJ-A147[plb_2469836_price] is also worth considering.

6 Other reasons to consider the Casio XJ-M156

OK Brand

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

Released Over Two Years Ago
