Summary: I was attracted to the laser/led projector because of no bulb and a 20,000 hour light source. A friend recommended it, so I took the plunge and ordered it online without having even touched one. It was shipped to the location where I was going to be in a business meeting. I plugged it in and connected it to my laptop via HDMI cable, and it worked the very first time with absolutely no connection hassles.
Summary: I travel a LOT - 45 to 48 weeks a year. What is most important to me is gear that is light, durable and hassle-free. That's exactly what the Casio Green-slim is. It very easily slips into either my roll-aboard or my briefcase and doesn't weigh me down or take up all my packing space. It's so thin! It's about the size of a laptop from a few years ago.
Summary: Picture Quality is outstanding. Got it to work with Mac via wireless. However since I could use only one wireless connection, I can't connect to internet when I am connected to the Projector via wireless. Struggled little for Mac, but it is working finally.
Would want for Christmas gift if I didn't already have it.

Summary: I cannot begin to be fair to this magnificent little device. There is so much it can do and so little that I ask of it. It is the centerpiece of my home theater. So it never gets to travel. But it fills the screen brightly, that is all I ask of it. I expect it to outlive me. The warranty period is super generous anyway. It truly is plug-and-play. I will never exploit all its capabilities as I run it through an A/V center.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Casio XJ-S57 projector (similar footprint, no wireless) that is about 5 or 6 years old. It is still going strong, but I was interested in the wireless capability of this unit, as well as the boost in lumens (old one is 2400 I think). This unit is FANTASTIC!!! It allows me to keep my laptop next to the podium where I can see it more clearly and place the projector in the center aisle for maximum image size (my averge audience size is about 50).
Summary: Although I primarily use it for TV and Video games, The only problem I had was the software for the wireless connection was not windows 8 compatible. Contacted Casio and the software ("Wireless connection 3") was under review for win8. That being said, I simply did compatibility checker with win8 and it got it working. After 200 hours it will dim slightly(this was expected) but its so minimal, can't really notice it.
Summary: If you need a projector for conferences this little casio is hard to beat. We bought it to replace an old projector that was much larger and cost an arm and a leg to ship in it's giant padded shipping container. In 2 years time this Casio will pay for itself in just saved shipping costs, not to mention the money saved not having to replace the bulbs as frequently as we did with the old beast.
Summary: I have purchased a few of the Casio Green Slim projectors over the past year and a half and so far they have all performed quite well. One of the XJ-A256 units had a failed main circuit board but warranty service through Casio was VERY fast and hassle-free. Casio uses a light source made up of three high intensity violet LED semiconductor lasers which uses far less power and heat than a metal-halide lamp with a much longer lifespan.
Amazing. Slim, fast, bright, packed with features.

Summary: This is a very "sexy" piece of technology. Very compact, yet packed with power. A very bright and crisp projection mechanism. HDMI input (among others) that allows for use of the built in speakers. Remote control and auto-keystone for super-easy setup. Even the lens cover is cool.
