I like the BenQ remote. It feels good in my medium sized hands. The backlighting comes on at the touch of any button – I really like that, since I have lots of remotes. Overall, the backlighting is reasonably bright but I might wish for a little more Still, this is better than say many Optoma remotes with their blue LEDs that are massively too bright, so bright that it makes it very hard to eyeball adjustments to the picture, because of the brightness.
Range is definitely acceptable when using the standard (or short throw) lenses and a bit better than the 8 meters (26 feet) that BenQ claims. That said, for those needing a long throw lens, depending on placement, in a larger room, the remote might – repeat – might, come up short on range, say if you are sitting 12 feet from the screen, but the projector is 40 feet back (that distance is easily doable with their lenses and say a 120” screen.
Great stuff: First, this remote offers HDMI-Link, so that you can control other devices with this remote – such as my Samsung 4K UHD Blu-ray player, or conversely, control the HT6050 from other devices that support HDMI-Link.
