The Casio XJ-A257 Portable Laser Projector claims 3,000 lumens, but it didn’t even come close. Granted, most projectors will measure up to 25% below their claim, though the Casio measured just above 50% of its claim. It gets to its brightest measurement, 1,575 lumens, by turning ECO off and switching on Bright; this is that ugly green mode we talked about on the Picture Quality page. ECO Off Bright does add a noticeable boost in brightness over our next brightest mode, Standard, which measured 1,243 lumens.
Right behind Standard (ECO On), is ECO Off, coming in at 1,225 lumens. Game mode is the next brightest mode measuring in at 1,118, followed by Graphic mode which is 1,035 lumens. The next mode, Theater, is the projector’s best mode for color, and measures in at 1,002 lumens. Though not even close to claim, 1,002 lumens is enough to handle some moderate ambient light. Standard mode is likely the best suited for presentations, but if your applications require good color, Theater mode is your best bet. The final mode is Blackboard, which measures in at 836 lumens.
