Casio XJ-A147
XGA Hybrid Presentation Projector

Marc Davidson, November 25, 2014

Limitations

No predefined color presets for the brightest modes. With no predefined modes for the non-Eco settings, the only way to adjust color is manually.

Rainbow artifacts. As already mentioned, anyone who sees rainbow artifacts easily will likely see them often enough with video to find them bothersome.

No 3D. Unlike most DLP projectors, the XJ-A147 does not support 3D.

Minimal sound system. The 1-watt mono speaker sounds tinny, and offers barely enough volume for a small conference room. If you need sound, plan on getting an external audio system.

Conclusion

If the resolution you need is 1024x768, the XJ-A147 is well worth a look. It delivers near-excellent quality for data images, it's small and light enough to serve as a traveling companion, and it handles video well enough for short clips, which is more than some data projectors can manage. It will also be of particular interest if you're concerned with ecological benefits like the mercury-free light source. As long as you're comfortable with paying a high initial price to get the benefits of a low running cost, the XJ-A147 can be a good fit, and even a potentially attractive one, as a small, light projector suitable for a small to mid-size room.
