Remote Control for the Epson EX7240, HC1440 Projector

This is a bright room projector so it's not surprising that the remote control isn't backlit.  This somewhat compact remote, however, has a whole lot of buttons providing quick and easy access to many important menu and sub-menu items and modes.

Bottom Line on Hardware

So what have we learned?  The HC1440 is well endowed.  It's a large portable type projector, with a powerful built in speaker.  It's got a zoom lens with more range than most of the competition, and is particularly easy to set up thanks to lots of features such as Screen Fit, Interactive Help, and Focus Help.

The selection of inputs and other connectors and capabilities though is where the HC1440 shines.  Not only does this projector have two HDMI inputs - one with MHL, but also has two computer inputs (either can be used for a component video source), and two USB inputs, one suitable for USB display, the other great for bringing in content on USB thumb drives.  And let's not forget the Crestron RoomView supported networking, which could be a real plus if your home is tied to some types of home automation networks.
