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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-AX3503, the CP-AX3503 has a built-in speaker(s).

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include the Hitachi CP-AX3003[plb_2415583_price] which is cheaper.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of this type and age do not support full HD. The CP-AX3503 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.
