CASIO XJ-UT310WN Short Throw
LED/Laser Hybrid Projector

Marc Davidson, June 16, 2014

Limitations

No predefined color presets for the brightest modes. With no predefined modes for the non-Eco settings, the only way to adjust color is manually.

Rainbow artifacts. As already mentioned, rainbow artifacts show up often enough with video that anyone who sees them easily will likely find them annoying.

Limited 3D. Although the XJ-UT310WN supports 3D with DLP-Link glasses, 3D will work only over a VGA connection.

Conclusion

The XJ-UT310WN is the wrong choice if you need to show a lot of video. However, it offers near excellent quality for data images, a 1280x800 resolution, and an unusual level of flexibility for adjusting brightness to match image size and the level of ambient light. The initial cost is a little high, but it's at least partly offset by savings in running in costs. And to the extent that it isn't, you may consider it worth paying a little more for ecological benefits like the mercury-free light source. If you need an ultra-short throw data projector for a small- to mid-size room, the XJ-UT310WN should certainly be in the running.

There is an easy to install Wall Mount, with a Paper Template that shows you exactly where on the wall to install the mounting bracket. This is the way to go! It mounts the projector several inches above your smart board, and slightly off-center of the board to center the projector lens on the board.

I have a client that wants to have this projector installed from the ceiling. It will be projecting onto a 87" diagonal smart board. How long should the down pole be on a 9' ceiling with board 32" from the floor?
