The Casio Signature XJ-M251 ($1,499) is a DLP-based data projector that uses the company's hybrid LED/laser light source, which promises very long lamp life. This model provides solid data image quality, suitable for typical business and classroom presentations, and passable video quality, provided you stick to short clips. Size and Connectivity Casio's Signature projectors are heavier and less portable than the company's svelte Slim (formerly Green Slim) line, typified in models such as the Casio Slim XJ-A256. The XJ-M251 measures 3.3 by 12.2 by 9.6 inches (HWD) and weighs 8.6 pounds, a bit heavy to travel with regularly.

The projector's 1.5x zoom ratio is generous, providing considerable flexibility on projector placement relative to the screen.

Lutron Caseta Wireless Plug-In Lamp Dimmer Kit
August 19, 2014
As more and more connected light bulbs flood the digital homemarket, it's surprising we haven't seen nearly as many accessories designed to bring connectivity to products we already have. After all, it can get pretty pricey to replace a bunch of bulbs that are still working perfectly well. The Lutron Caseta Wireless Plug-In Lamp Dimmer Kitmakes it easy to bring some connectivity to bulbs in the lamps you already own, and for $80, you can connect two lamps to a single dimmer. It works well, setup is simple, and it comes with a remote control out of the box. If you want to pair it with your smartphone, however, you'll have to spend extra money on a bridge. Setup The white, plastic dimmer box measures 3.1 by 2.1 by 1.2 inches (HWD) and plugs into a standard outlet. It supports up to 300-watt incandescent or halogen bulbs, or 100-watt dimmable CFL or LED bulbs. I tested the kit using a Philips 60-watt equivalent dimmable LED bulb.
