4 Other reasons to consider the Casio XJ-A247

OK Running Costs

This projector has been on the market for over two years.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the Casio XJ-A247 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price], or the XJ-A142[pl_2571989_price] all from Casio.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Casio XJ-A247 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price], or the XJ-A142[pl_2571989_price] all from Casio.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Casio XJ-A252[plb_2757589_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
