Casio XJ-A130 super slim portable projector

 

Casio have specialised in ultra slim projectors for quite a while now and they have pushed the boundaries yet again with the new green slim series offering unprecedented lamp life and setting a new benchmark for running costs.

All in all the ultra slim Casio range is well made feature packed and easy to use. The lamp life is revolutionary and though the 2.3kg weight is about 500grams more than some competitors like Epson the slim design is a sure winner.
