The Casio XJ-A257 Portable Laser Projector is intended for business and educational uses. It is extremely portable, being the size and weight of a single ream of copy paper. This projector has an internal storage capacity of 2GB, coupled with a versatile onboard media player; it is able to meet the needs of anyone who requires a bright, clear image in an easily carried package. It’s automatic, digital, vertical keystone correction makes setup a snap, and it’s lampless Laser & LED light engine with a lifespan of 20,000 hours make this projector virtually maintenance fee.

Though the XJ-A257 fell short on its advertised brightness of 3,000 lumens with a top brightness of only 53% of its claim, I believe it is bright enough and it’s other features, such as its ease of portability, internal storage capacity, ability to serve as an access point for mobile devices allowing for control and presentations from a smartphone or tablet, and quality audio make up for this. This Casio projector is offered with a price tag of $1,509, making it a great choice for an entry level portable laser projector.

The Casio XJ-A257 has five standard color modes, and two ECO Off color modes: Standard, Game, Graphic, Theater, Blackboard, ECO Off, and ECO Off Bright. Colors are generally good, with Theater mode being the best. This projector also allows for five brightness settings in the five ECO On modes, allowing you to make your presentations as eco-friendly as you like, but the darker modes are suited only for extremely dark environments.
