What we like about the Excelvan PH5 Projector

The projector doesn’t make noise when it’s in operation. It uses Hyperfine Air Cooling Technology that cools the projector with the least amount of noise possible.
What we don’t like about the Excelvan PH5 Projector
The feature of inbuilt speakers was very important for us since it could save us some money with buying external speakers but for our room, the speakers didn’t work as we expected. The built-in speakers were created for small rooms like bedrooms, for larger rooms you will need external speakers.
The projector is made of plastic and is durable as long as it’s properly taken care of. But there are instances where the risk of breaking is high especially in an environment when you have kids running around.
