While most business and education projectors in the $1000 price range still use conventional lamp light sources, Casio uses a hybrid LED/Laser light source instead. Although the XJ-F210WN may have an initial cost of $200 to $400 more than some competing lamp-based projectors, the life cycle cost for the Casio is very competitive. This is because the rated life of this hybrid light source is "up to" 20,000 hours, which is about 4 to 6 times as long as a typical lamp. Thus, the costs associated with multiple lamp replacements are eliminated.
Overall the XJ-F210WN produces a better picture than many other DLP projectors of this class that I have reviewed recently. The XJ-F210WN received our Hot Product award for the combination of very good picture quality, low maintenance, good networking support, a good feature set and a built-in speaker that can play fairly loud.
