Running Costs Are Low

The CP-AX3503 has an average running cost of £105 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run projectors of this age and spec.


Released Over Three Years Ago

It was April 2014 when this projector was released.


Does Not Support Full HD

The CP-AX3503 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support full HD.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-AX3503 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of its better review score, the Ricoh PJ WX4141N is also worth considering.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the CP-AX3003 (£873.52) (36dB), or the CP-TW3003 (£103.76) (36dB) both from Hitachi.
