Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Casio XJ-M246 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the XJ-A242 (£1,068.99), and the XJ-A252 (£1,139.99) both from Casio and both of which have better reviews; or the Casio XJ-M146 (£983.23) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The XJ-M246 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The projector brightnesses of projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector range from 400 ANSI lumens to 8,300 ANSI lumens.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of their better review scores, the XJ-A147 (£906), the XJ-A242 (£1,068.99), and the XJ-A142 (£911.99) all from Casio are also worth considering.

Alternative data projectors which support Wi-Fi currently available that you might want to consider include the Casio XJ-M146 (£983.23) which is cheaper; or the XJ-M156 (£956.24), or the XJ-M256 (£1,212.71) both from Casio and both of which have better reviews.

Performance

Very Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 33 decibels, the XJ-M246 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago. Projectors of this age and spec have noise levels of between 31dB and 43dB.

We compared this data projector to all the other 33dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the XJ-M156 (£956.24), and the XJ-M256 (£1,212.71) both from Casio and both of which have better reviews; or the Casio XJ-M146 (£983.23) which is cheaper are also worth considering.
