Epson PowerLite L610W Laser Projector – Hardware Part II

Epson PowerLite L610W Laser Projector Review – Hardware 2: Control Panel, Remote Control, Menus

Control Panel


The Epson PowerLite L610W’s control panel is actually located on the back of the device with the input panel. All the buttons were simple to push and other than that, it was a basic set up.  Power button is located on the left midsection and Source Search is directly to the right.  Northwest of Source Search is the Menu button and opposite that below, is the A/V Mute.

Lastly you have your 4 arrows and the Enter button, with ESC at the top right of the panel.

Remote Control


The Epson PowerLite L610W is a pretty ordinary Epson remote. It fits nicely into your hand, the controls are easy to push, and Epson’s uniformity with this remote control will have end users pleased that a new projector will not usher in a new, not as functional remote control. It’s the same quality remote Epson. It is not back lit but that should not be a huge problem, especially if you have previous experience with similar Epson remotes.

You have a source search option, input buttons, aspect ratio, menu, and Esc. There is a pointer, page up/down, zoom in/out, and volume up/down. Lastly there is A/V Mute, access to the split screen functionality, and a Freeze button.

As well, there is also a custom User button that allows you to choose from Light Source Mode, Info, Test pattern, resolution, QR code display, On-screen display, image enhancement, or content playback.

The remote has a range of about 30 ft give or take and the overall feel just has always felt intuitive, easy to operate, and reliable.
