CASIO XJ-UT310WN Short Throw
LED/Laser Hybrid Projector
June 16, 2014
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.
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.
