BenQ's remote control is compact, with lots of small buttons in the top and bottom halves, but with a very large navigation area in the middle.
The top section has the obligatory Power On switch, and in this case, a separate Power Off button. They are green and red, respectively. Then come two rows of buttons for source selection, and a third row, with Eco-Blank, Auto (setup) and Menu/Exit
Below that is the usual navigation in a round configuration with the Enter button in the center. When not "navigating" the center button lets you toggle through the different picture Modes.
Below that, comes a single yellow button - holding it down lights the laser pointer. Below that, five more rows of three buttons. 10 of them make up the numeric keypad, however each of those takes on a different function when not in the menus. Those include:
Page Up/Page Down, Digital Zoom In/Out, Volume Up/Down, Freeze frame, Aspect ratio, and Mute.
The last two rows have Network Settings, Smart Eco mode, Mic Volume Up/Down, and the Test and Capture buttons.
No backlight, but that's typical of business education projectors. Overall, a very functional remote. It is light weight, is sculpted to fit most hands nicely, and has good, ot exceptional range. 20 feet was no problem at all, even with a bounce off our screen.
