Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XJ-M146 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to look at including the XJ-M156 (£956.24), the XJ-A142 (£936), or the XJ-A147 (£906) all from Casio which all of have better reviews.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The XJ-M146 supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to this projector do not support Wi-Fi.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support Wi-Fi currently available including because of their better review scores, the XJ-M156 (£956.24), or the XJ-A147 (£906) both from Casio.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Wi-Fi and we think the Casio XJ-M246 (£1,069.09) is also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to this data projector is 3,400 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 400 ANSI lumens to 8,300 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Casio XJ-M146 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of their better review scores, the XJ-A147 (£906), the XJ-A242 (£1,068.99), and the XJ-A142 (£936) all from Casio are also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the XJ-M156 (£956.24) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the XJ-A252 (£1,139.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the XJ-M256 (£1,212.71) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Casio.
