The BenQ MX6310ST is provided with a moderate size remote control. The remote has no backlight.
Starting at the top there are power on and power off buttons. As is typical with many projectors, the user must press the power off button two times to actually turn the projector off.
Next down are 6 buttons to directly select in input signal source.
Next down is a group of 9 buttons that duplicate the projector's built-in control pad, that was described on the previous section of this review.
Below those is a button to use the laser pointer that is built into the remote (a nice feature for when making presentations).
Below that is a group of 6 buttons labeled MHL is are used when the projector is connected to a MHL enabled device (e.g., smart phone or tablet) where these buttons can be used to control selection and playback of audio/video/media files from the attached device.
Next down is a group of buttons that serve double duty as a numeric keypad where each button also supports a 2nd function. The upper 3 pairs of buttons provide for numeric input 1 thru 6 and are also used to: (1) operate the projector's digital zoom (enlarge one area of the projected image); (2) to page up and down on a connected PC for presentations with compatible software (e.g., PowerPoint); and (3) the mic/volume buttons are not functional on this projector model. The next row of buttons (also used for the number keypad numbers 7 thu 9) are used for Freezing the current image on the screen, selecting the aspect ratio of the displayed image, and muting the audio. Finally, the bottom row of 3 buttons are for displaying the network settings menu (not functional with this projector model), displaying the quick install menu (this button is also used as the number zero input), and to place the projector into Smart Eco power savings mode.
