The Casio XJ-S400UN is part of Casio’s new Superior series, which features the next generation of their mercury-free, hybrid laser and LED light engine. The series was announced in January, and also includes Casio’s new dust-resistant design, enhancing the effectiveness of cooling the light source and power supply, and protecting against dust settling inside the unit, even in dusty environments.
This DLP projector is intended for business and education environments, as are all of Casio’s projectors. It has WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution, and is compact enough to be considered a portable projector, so it can be transferred from conference room to conference room, classroom to classroom. Its 4,000 lumen claim makes it nicely bright, with enough power to combat the ambient light commonly found in K-12 classrooms, conference rooms, boardrooms, retail spaces, and museum exhibitions.
As always, I’ll start this review with an overview of the projector and a look into its highlights, before diving into its special features. Following that, we’ll have a detailed discussion of the hardware. Then, we’ll take a closer look into the projector’s capabilities, discussing picture quality and performance, before wrapping it all up for you and providing some insights into competition and its pros and cons.
