Casio Ecolite XJ-V110W LED/Laser Projector Review - Hardware Tour 2

CASIO XJ-V110W PROJECTOR REVIEW - HARDWARE 2:  This short page looks at the remote control and also many of the menus

Remote Control

Compact with no backlight, the XJ-V110W’s remote control isn’t too fancy, but it gets the job done. Small enough to fit in a pocket, the remote control runs off of two AAA batteries and features everything you’d expect — access to the menu and a way to change inputs, mainly.

There are direct adjustment controls for vertical keystone, digital zoom, and volume (which control the volume of the 3.5mm audio output on this projector) as well as freeze-frame and blanking. A small button marked with a leaf icon gives access to the XJ-V110W’s eco light modes, which give you 7-step adjustment control over brightness output.

Not found are adjustments for Sharpness, Color Saturation and Tint

Tint, in particular is often not available on many projector's HDMI inputs, but we definitely prefer to have a viable color saturation control.  There were times during the review when viewing some sources, that I felt the picture was a bit undersaturated, and missing having the ability to ramp it up.  Extra color saturation comes in handy when facing too much ambient light, although that shouldn't be a problem for the V110W, it's sufficiently bright for a projector in its class.

Casio XJ-V110W Menus

Primary Image Controls

A typical selection of controls for a picture or image menu, although notably missing is Color Saturation

Another look at the various picture modes

The one note seen here is the native mode. When that is engaged, maximum brightness, but no control of picture - use in case of emergency - not pretty.

Adjusting the Color

Very basic RGB (grayscale adjustment) control. Most projectors offer two ranges for each color (lighter and darker ones), which makes for a tighter calibration.

Two more image controls

Overscan for eliminating edge noise is not normally found on an image menu - perhaps that's why they isolated it.

Screen Settings

Pretty obvious usage. On most projectors I would expect to find Overscan on this menu.

Options Settings 2

Of note - high altitude mode. Also the built in timer to power down the projector

Operational Mode

A typical Info menu, shows lamp hours, resolution...

Restore All Defaults

This is you master reset. Be careful out there!
