10 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This multimedia projector received an expert rating of 70 out of 100 from PC Mag.

Low Running Costs

The XJ-M146 is in the cheapest 20% of all 21 projectors of a similar age and spec that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the XJ-M146 will cost only £56 over 1 year to run.

Good Picture Quality

One person who reviewed the product mentioned that it had good colour saturation.

Robust

One customer who reviewed the product thought it was well made. Pcmag.com said in their Casio XJ-M146 review on expert website PC Mag “Solid data-image quality”.

Good Product Quality

One customer who reviewed the product thought it was good quality.

Good Connectivity

One customer who reviewed it thought it was wifi compatible. Pc Mag wrote “Has Wi-Fi and Ethernet” in their review.

Supports Wi-Fi

Unlike most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XJ-M146 which do not support wi-Fi, the XJ-M146 supports wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support wi-Fi and we think the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price], and the XJ-M256[pl_2819964_price] both from Casio which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Casio XJ-M146 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the XJ-M146 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 XG-P560WN[pl_1898103_price], and the XG-P610X-N[pl_2467453_price] both from Sharp or the Casio XJ-M140[plb_2428122_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on multimedia projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The XJ-M146 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the XJ-M146 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Casio Data Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

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

Does Not Support 3D

The XJ-M146 does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Casio XJ-M140[plb_2428122_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago, the XJ-M146 does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the XJ-M146 range from 400 ANSI lumens to 6,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,100 ANSI lumens. At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the XJ-M146 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

There are a number of other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], the XJ-M140[pl_2428122_price], or the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price] all from Casio.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), the XJ-A252[pl_2757589_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the XJ-M256[pl_2819964_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) all from Casio which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Optical Zoom

The Casio XJ-M146 has one of the smaller optical zooms (only 1.5 times zoom factor) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

Average Noise Level

The XJ-M146 has a pretty standard noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the XJ-M146.

We compared this data projector to all the other 33dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Casio XJ-M140[plb_2428122_price] is also worth considering.
