Below those are the 4-way Navigation buttons and below those are the Menu and Back buttons. Toward the bottom of the remote are three rows of four buttons each. These provide direct access to several of the projector’s available functions/adjustments without the need to navigation thru the full menu structure (note the 3D button is not active for the V7850).
In addition to the VGA and HDMI, the 16 buttons in four rows at the bottom include direct access to controls including brightness, gamma, sharpness, contrast, aspect ratio, and their “Super-Resolution” a generic term, that Epson has long used for their suite of sharpening tools, and which Acer, it seems also has adapted. That’s the way it is with generic terms. You can trademark Accu-Motion, but not Super-Resolution.
All that’s left are a Freeze button to freeze the screen (even while content continues to change), and a Hide button which blacks out the screen, while there is still content to project.
That’s about it. For a pretty compact remote, I found I liked it, range was very good, and I didn’t mind the 16 small, identical buttons (which would be hard to memorize where the ones you might use are located). The reasons I didn’t mind – most folks won’t be typically using them. The Menus and top buttons are where most of the action is.
Very bottom line: A good, solid remote. And perhaps best – its white, so if you are using this projector in a darkened room, especially one with darker surfaces, it’s easy to spot on a table. I spend too much of my life looking for black remotes in a very dark room.
I figure any manufacturer with a black projector remote should have at least one button on it that glows fairly brightly in the dark! Long ago I started putting a day-glo type strip on each black remote that I use. It sure helps finding them in the middle of a movie. That’s my 2 cents!
