11 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This 1800:1 contrast ratio projector received an expert rating of 70 out of 100 from PC Mag.

Good Connectivity

One Casio XJ-M246 owner thought the product was good in terms of connectivity. Last year Pcmag.com said on expert review site PC Mag “A good range of connectivity choices, including Wi-Fi” in their review and rated the product 4 stars.

Robust

One Casio XJ-M246 owner thought the Casio XJ-M246 was well made. Pcmag.com scored this projector 4 stars and said on expert website PC Mag “The Casio Signature XJ-M246 is a hybrid laser/LED data projector with solid data-image quality” in their review.

Good Product Quality

One Casio XJ-M246 reviewer who reviewed the Casio XJ-M246 thought it was good quality.

Supports Wi-Fi

The XJ-M246 supports wi-Fi. Most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support wi-Fi currently available including the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price], or the XJ-M256[pl_2819964_price] both from Casio which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XJ-M246 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the XG-P560WN[pl_1898103_price], or the XG-P610X-N[pl_2467453_price] both from Sharp or the Casio XJ-M140[plb_2428122_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found projector native resolution on projectors of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 31dB to 39dB, and the average noise level is 34dB. The XJ-M246 has a quite quiet noise level (only 33 decibels) compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the XJ-M246.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the XJ-M140[pl_2428122_price], and the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price] both from Casio is also worth considering.

Fairly Big Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 0.55" and the biggest is 0.7". At 0.65 inches, the XJ-M246 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 28 decibels, the XJ-M246 has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. Data projectors that were released around the same time as the XJ-M246 have noise level (economic mode)s of between 28dB and 37dB.

5 Reasons Against

Casio Only Has Unexceptional Data Projector Reviews

Casio 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have unexceptional ratings on average and across all multimedia projectors Casio is one of the mediocre manufacturers.

Does Not Support 3D

The XJ-M246 does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D including the Casio XJ-M140[plb_2428122_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Casio XJ-M246 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the XJ-M246 also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

The projector brightnesss of 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the XJ-M246 range from 400 ANSI lumens to 6,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the XJ-A147[pl_2469836_price], the XJ-M140[pl_2428122_price], and the XJ-A242[pl_2571903_price] all from Casio which has better reviews is also worth considering.
