5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XJ-A252 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price], and the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price] both from Casio is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Casio XJ-A247[plb_2731263_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Casio Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Projectors

1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by Casio have unexceptional ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Casio also has unexceptional ratings across its entire range.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the XJ-A252, the XJ-A252 does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Casio XJ-A147[plb_2469836_price] which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the XJ-A252 is 31dB and the loudest is 39dB.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 35dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Casio XJ-A142[plb_2571989_price] which is cheaper; or the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], or the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price] both from Casio 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
