If someone asks you to think of three words that best describe a DLP chances are you may come up with the following: heavy, bulky and pricey. Well, Casio is trying hard to make you forget about the first two with its newest DLP unit, the XJ-S46.
This sleek and stylish device projects 2,500 lumens of light but its marvel is in its size (it’s the thinnest projector currently on the market) and weight (3.7 pounds or 1.7 kilos, whichever way you like your weight calculated.) With those specs you can slip this into your satchel, slap it on your back and pedal back from that morning office presentation and then watch “Casino Royale” that night in your home.
Casio also has another model, the XJ-S36, which outputs 2,000 lumens and of course costs less. Both models offer 1800:1 contrast, XGA resolution and are easy to set up with their USB mode of connection. Still, at $2,263 (for the XJ-S46) and $2,010 (XJ-S36), pricey is still a heavy word.
