Which projectors would you like to see featured in future projector videos?
Casio recently came by to show off their new Casio XJ-A150 Green Slim projector, which is expected to hit our shelves on November 1, 2010.
To accomplish this extraordinary brightness in its Green Slim line, Casio tweaked the wavelength of the blue laser and adjusted the phosphor element, which controls green light output. They also improved the alignment of the laser so that more light passes through the lens.
We set up the 3,000 lumen Casio XJ-A150 and the 2,500 lumen Casio XJ-A145 in our conference room for an impromptu shootout. Check out the video below.
The brighter Casio XJ-A150 is on the left, the Casio XJ-A145 is on the right. Both were filmed in their default settings.

This morning we had an impromptu shootout of our top offerings in each display category. We compared the Panasonic PT-AE4000U (LCD, 1600 lumens, 100,000:1 contrast ratio), LG CF181D (LCoS, 1800 lumens 35,000:1 contrast ratio) and the InFocus SP8602 (DLP, 1300 lumens 30,000:1 contrast ratio).
In the video below, the Panasonic is on top, the InFocus on the bottom left and the LG on the bottom right. Please note, this was a very impromptu shootout. We happened to have three awesome 1080p projectors in the same room and couldn’t resist the opportunity to compare LCoS, LCD and DLP displays. You’ll notice at times the screen is leaning against the wall, which causes a keystone effect and naturally softens the focus of the Panasonic projector.
Our initial impressions:
- We were really amazed with the brightness and contrast of the LG CF181D. It was so bright, in fact, it may appear blown-out on the video.
- We had to play with the LG‘s color settings to match the Panasonic and InFocus. The “warm” mode delivered the most life-like colors.
- At 120 hz, the InFocus delivered amazing motion. However, our overly-sensitive eyes picked up a few rainbows during certain action scenes.
