6 Reasons For

Good Picture Quality

Several people who bought the Casio XJ-M251 mentioned that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

A number of Casio XJ-M251 reviewers who reviewed it concluded that it was good quality.

Robust

A few Casio XJ-M251 owners who purchased the Casio XJ-M251 thought it was well made. Pcmag.com wrote on expert review site PC Mag “This model provides solid data image quality, suitable for typical business” in their Casio XJ-M251 review.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Casio XJ-M251 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Sharp XG-P560WN[plb_1898103_price], and the Casio XJ-M141[plb_2970918_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review site PC Mag scored this projector 60%. This puts this data projector in the bottom 17% of all the data projectors of this age and spec when ranked by average expert review score.

Casio Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Casio has unexceptional average reviews for its 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other brands.

Poor 3D Picture Quality

One customer considered that the Casio XJ-M251 did not have a good 3D picture quality. Pc Mag mentioned “Projection of 3D content limited to PCs” in their review of this projector and scored this projector 3 stars.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Casio XJ-M251 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the XJ-M251 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the XJ-M146[pl_2571991_price], or the XJ-M156[pl_2757562_price] both from Casio which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Most 1800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the XJ-M251 do not support 3D. The Casio XJ-M251 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

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