    Saw a demo on these yesterday and they looked good especially for replacement installations due to the flexibility of the zoom feature, however...for new installs the teachers like the ultra short throw installs so may wait to see if they enter that market or if another uses the same technology for an ultra short throw version. Casio did say they were not in that market so time will tell.

    For me it's a natural evolution, a short throw will arrive at some point. Who knows when though..
    The first units are now in the UK and shipping Monday from a company called Midwich for the first dealer orders...

    Took delivery of a bunch of AJ130 yesterday and had a good play with one.

    Amazingly fast on/off is the first thing that hits you. I guess like most of us, I was sceptical about brightness with this new technology, but having seen one in action I was most impressed - and then realised it was in ECO mode and went even brighter! These entry level units will be fine for classroom and corporate meeting use.

    Tested with WXGA input and it looked great, with sharp edges to graphics and text. Good contrast and colour saturation.

    Tested with HDMI input and again looked great with HD movie trailers for Ironman and Tron. No immediate artefacts visible - although not a formal test by any means. I'd have one at home without hesitation.

    Other observations - when running in High Brightness mode, the fan noise was noticeable in our office, but I don't think this will be a major issue in a school - particularly as it can be run in eco for most apps. We also noticed that the unit still runs hot (like standard projectors), so whilst these are "green" in terms of TCO, they still consume a decent amount of juice and will need proper ventilation.

    Overall - fantastic product. I want one!

    Remember that the ambient noise in a classroom is greater, plus the projector won't be resting on a wooden desk, plus it will be further away once mounted, so almost certainly not a problem. I remember one switch we bought which made a racket in my office, making me think I couldn't install it into the cabinet in someone's office, but it was inaudible once fitted.

    I believe the current stock is only the XJA130... I have an XJA155 on order and that's not due until April 15th now!

    Gah! This is getting to be slightly vexing! Why can't Casio get their act together and deliver the damned things?!

    Because of the massive demand for them? I've no doubt that Casio also have 'preferred partner' channels to fill first.

    There is massive demand, but at the same time - no-one could get any on launch day! ie. there weren't any available in the UK except the demo models.
