Video

Supports Full HD

The CP-AX3003 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this projector which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the LG BG650 (£685).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-AX3003 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the LG BG650 (£685) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Panasonic PT-VW530, or the Epson EB-4550.

Performance

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The CP-AX3003 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 36 decibels) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector. The quietest noise level of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this projector is 29dB and the loudest is 48dB.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the LG BG650 (£685) (34dB and cheaper).

Very Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 3,300 ANSI lumens, the CP-AX3003 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as this data projector. The average projector brightness of projectors that are a similar age to this data projector is 6,000 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 85,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Panasonic PT-VW530 (5,000 ANSI lumens).
