New Casio projectors: LED/Laser, 720p, compact - Page 20

post #571 of 876
Thanks for the info.

After using it for about 10 hours thus far

Here are my pros and cons

Pros:

Bright Picture
Xbox360 and PS3 look great no noticeable lag for me playing games.
Portability
I like the power zoom and focus
Price
Lamp Life
Black Level compared to my old Infocus Screenplay 5000. Not comparing to other current models so it's subjective.

Cons:

Fan and wheel Noise louder than I would like.
RBE - for those sensitive to it like me.
Remote seems a little bit slugish getting menu items to come up.
Flesh tones out of the box. Needs a little tweaking.
not 1080p.

After looking at alternatives the Casio is a unique projector in terms of lumens, portability and lamp life. I will have to give it some more time to see if I can get used to the RBE.

My local membership club has the XJ-A230 by itself and the XJ-A240 w/ a 92' screen for $200 more is there any difference in the units really? Is it worth it I really was wanting 120' screen. And if I get one of these am I going to regret it by it not being 1080p?
post #573 of 876
Nobody can tell you that! I have the 240 with a 120" screen and I'm loving it, even though I can see the screendoor effect in some movies. This is my first projector but I am fussy about quality, as proven by the time and money spent on building my audio system!

The 240 on a 120" screen in a mixed white, dark furnishings room, at the dimmest setting is a bit too dim for my liking. The next mode up is just right but noise is an issue since I sit right under it. I need a hush box ideally.

End of the day it looks incredible and while the calculations gave me the idea this screen would big enough from 3.4metres, I am shocked to learn I still want my 2.35 movies to be bigger (wider). Size I would say is more important than mild differences in resolution or brightness so if 120" is for you then perhaps your purchase decision should make that a priority.

If you want 1080p then there is not a similar projector out there with these features for this money.

variations of the green slim line no doubt-larger cases for larger quieter fans-some man zoom/focus for cost savings,and 3d!
post #575 of 876
The bigger box no doubt will be better for fan noise, although the colour wheel seems to make the most irritating noise, which will remain regardless of box size I suspect.

The replacement models would be down grades for me;
Focusing is manual ONLY! I love motorized zoom and would not give that up in my arrangement!!!

Optical zoom is down from 2.0X to 1.5X in the replacement models.

The signature has power zoom/focus -1.5 if i have it right

Sweet Job BingDong!

That's one ingenious way to both cool down AND silence that casio perturbation.. er I mean projector.

He's using that Epson ColorMunki thing, looks like it works great but costs over $400 clams!

I'm wondering if anyone here is dealt with casio customer service with their projectors and had any luck?

I bought this projector (a245U) and the wireless dongle from casio to go with it. I had the intention of watching video from my laptop without having to hook up a video cord, a genius solution since my receiver is in the front of the room. I bring it traveling with me a lot as well.
I thoroughly read all of their literature and it says everywhere it mirrors your computer screen. However when I tried to playback video it is choppy and horrid, nothing worth watching. no amount of adjusting the settings helps. I called casio support multiple times, and every time they said almost immediately that it was intended to display a document or picture only. Who knew someone would try to watch a video, on their VIDEO projector right? I know this comparison is a little dramatic, but isn't it a little like buying a car and finding out it has no reverse? You call up chevy, and they're like ," whoah! we said it drives great, nobody said anything about it going backwards"

I talked to some managers there, but basically they don't care and are unwilling to do anything but reimburse me for the wireless adapter. a small drop in the bucket when I'm out well over $1k and it doesn't do what I bought it to do. I even bought a windows laptop because they're too lazy to write mac compatible software.

anyone have any suggestions? comments? am I completely crazy in being mad about this?
the thing that pisses me off the most is that everyone I've talked to had fielded a similar complaint call, yet they never posted any warning in any literature or online when you download their software. ZERO effort to inform the consumer despite countless examples of why its necessary.

It would be one thing if I hadn't read the manuals and they specifically said not intended for video. I feel like I did everything you could possibly expect a consumer to do ahead of time to educate myself on the product before I bought it.

to be honest i love it so far, but I chose it specifically for the wireless feature, and now I've invested a bunch of cash into it, when I could have chosen many other better, much cheaper projectors that also don't do wireless video....

again I apologize if anything thinks I'm hijacking this thread, but I know this is probably the one place most owners of these would actually look. any feedback is appreciated, wether you agree or not.

love this community, and despite my lower post count, I read it ALL the time.
cheers!

Well they dont make any performance claim,I dont think any one is using wifi from a source to display for average vids let alone some thing like a uncompresed movie-wireless hdmi is something totaly diferent.
post #593 of 876
they say you can use it to display the contents of your computer's display. With no qualifying statements of any kind. it uses wireless N so there is more than enough bandwidth. in fact wireless g would be plenty for great looking video. many products under $100 can stream atleast 720p video flawlessly is it so hard to believe that this feature could be incorporated into a projector priced well over $1k?

the fact that the literature touts its ability to display the screens of four different computers at once, as well as connect to 32 computers simultaneously makes it sound is if one display showing anything should be no problem at all. There's also no claim to quality when referencing any of the other inputs (hdmi/vga/component/composite) which all work flawlessly ofcourse, so I wouldn't assume they'd make any specific claim to quality on wireless transmission unless it was necessary.

I understand what wireless HDMI is, and that this is a different animal. I just don't see how a consumer (especially an average consumer) is supposed to know video is not a possibility before they spend the cash. I did my best to find reviews online of the feature ( none) and I read all fo their literature, both published in the US, and they're european projector manuals translated from german and french.

please don't take this is my being argumentative eat meat. I genuinely appreciate your candor :0) all opinions welcome, I'm just trying to figure out if anyone thinks this is or isn't an acceptable practice on casio's part.

Anyone out there?

I hope so, I will have some questions in a few days as I wrap up building the theatre room.

I just hope that everyone here is enjoying their projectors more than posting issues like blown bulbs or issues with color wheels etc.

I got my 240 back from casio and they say the could not see the line of green haze (but has changed to the whole corner which is a lighter green haze,sense I have gotten it back).i assume they were not zooming out to 80-100inch when it becomes visible. beyond frustrated.Gonna take picks and a vid but may be really hard to capture the slight green tint on white back ground.
post #597 of 876
Can anyone tell if this Casio projector has a lens memory feature like the Panny 4000 ?
post #598 of 876
it does, once you zoom and focus an image in your theater room or what have you, if will automatically jump to those settings when you turn it on next.

I just picked up a Casio XJ-A230.

I connected it to my HTPC. For blue, I got purple. No matter how much adjustment I made to the nVidia Control Panel, which has a lot more adjustment than the Casio menu (although I tried that, too), I could not get blue out of this projector. The blue laser must be out in left field on a chromaticity chart.

I was able to get decent flesh tones after some fiddling.

I compared it to an InFocus projector (also a business projector), and a Viewsonic LCD monitor. On both of those, the colors were fine, so it is not the source.

If anyone has any ideas, I would be open to them. Otherwise, it's going to have to go back to the store.

Hmmm. I got the XJ-A235 just a few weeks ago during the newegg steal. They should be nearly the same in every regard. Blues were fine right out of the box. In fact, I did very little with the settings at all. (Coming from a SP7210, I expected to have to do some major adjustments, but none were necessary.) I do recall reading somewhere (this thread?) that the purple does give way to truer blues after a couple hundred hours.
