Yet another remote without a backlight: it’s annoying, but we’ll move past that. The remote is pretty decent, and includes a built-in laser pointer. The remote operates off of two AAA batteries which are included, and fits comfortably in the hand. The remote is laid out in three distinct sections. We’ll start at the top and go from left to right. In the top row, left corner is an On/Off button; press once to turn on, twice to turn off. In the middle of the top row is the 3D button, which toggles 3D mode, followed by Source.
The next row consists of Ratio, which allows quick toggling between Auto, 16:9, 4:3, and Letterbox aspect ratios. Next is a red button with what almost appears to be a black tree – this is the laser pointer button; hold to emit a red laser dot for ease of pointing to different areas of the projector screen. Next is Mode, which toggles between color modes.
The next section is another directional keypad. As is typical, the up and down arrows double as vertical keystone correction and the left and right arrows double as volume controls. The center button is Enter, but doubles as a Play/Pause button for the onboard media player. Below the directional keypad, is a Back button and a Menu button.
The next section consists of a 12 button keypad, and every button has a dual purpose. The first row is: 1/Free; 2/VGA; 3/HDMI-MHL; 0/Hide. The Second row is: 4/Page Up; 5/Component; 6/Video; Zoom In. The last row is made up of: 7/Page Down; 8/Media; 9/LAN-WiFi; Zoom Out.
