The Casio XJ-S57 is a very attractive option for the business traveler. Its diminutive size, light weight and easy setup makes for hassle-free presentations on the go. While the color reproduction of the XJ-S57 is not up to the standards the LCD competition in this price range, its text presentation at any resolution is flawless. It has a greater zoom range than many projectors in this price range and its power zoom and focus are handy features that are seldom found in its competitors.
The XJ-S57 comes with a protective soft sleeve that holds the projector, but not much else. (There is a second smaller bag for cables.) The small size, and especially the low height of the projector makes it easy to carry in a briefcase or small laptop bag, unlike almost any other portable projectors almost all of which are at least an inch and a half taller. It can also be permanently mounted, though it’s unlikely that anyone would buy this projector for that use.
