8 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The average 1 year running cost of the CP-AX3503 is £105 based on average energy prices, which is in the cheapest 21% of all 53 data projectors of a similar age and type.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Hitachi CP-AX3503 has a built-in speaker.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include the Ricoh PJ X3340[plb_1581278_price], or the Hitachi CP-TW3003[plb_2516774_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Epson EB-4750W[plb_1949826_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 36 decibels, the CP-AX3503 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The quietest noise level of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AX3503 is 29dB and the loudest is 48dB.

We compared this projector to all the other 36dB noise level data projectors and we think the CP-AX3003[pl_2415583_price], and the CP-TW3003[pl_2516774_price] both from Hitachi which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-VZ570[plb_2843893_price] (37dB).
