Casio XJ-S43W Projector

Casio on Wednesday launched an update to its slim projector line with a lone but important model, the XJ-S43W. The new DLP unit is now much friendlier to widescreen notebooks and HD sources with a 1280x800 native resolution. It's also now brighter and generates as much as 2,500 lumens with a 1,800:1 contrast ratio. Size remains the selling point as the system is just under 1.7 inches at its thickest point and less than 1.3 inches at its best.

Full digital input is supplied through HDMI (either directly or by adapting DVI), but computers can connect more readily using a VGA port. Regardless of source, images can scale up to 300 inches in size and can produce smaller images as close as 2.8 feet from the lens. Casio delivers the S43W in September at a relatively low price of $999.
