Overall, its a small, attractive remote backlit (button is underneath), with what appears to be a blue LED light. InFocus has a limited number of buttons, compared to many remotes, but key items like User settings (presets) have their own buttons.
InFocus uses the four buttons (below the power button at the top) to navigate the menus. The left button brings up the menu, the up and down arrows let you navigate through the choices, and the Select button on the right, lets you move to the next level menus, and also to go back a menu (the top item on each menu is Previous, which means the previous, higher level menu, not where you last were in the menus.
This system is pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it. Personally, I still prefer having a separate Menu button, four arrow keys and and Enter key. It's two more buttons, but makes for much faster navigation. The good news, is that you will rarely be playing in the menus.
The next row has the Resize for aspect ratio, Overscan, which will enlarge the image slightly (this can come in handy of you get some artifacts at the top/bottom of the screen, which isn't uncommon if you have regular "low resolution" TV programming comiing in on a HD channel, and possibly on a less than great DVD player.
Source select is on the far right.
Next Row: Custom for retrieving your custom settings, Auto Image adjust, and Presets which let you switch between the multiple settings.
So you should be getting the idea - you can navigate through the menus, or quickly use the buttons on the remote to jump to your choices.
The last row let's you choose sources directly, without toggling through ones you aren't interested in.
One very interesting feature: By tapping on the Backlite button (on the bottom, the keys illuminate (now, that's nothing new). If, instead, you hold down the Backlight button, a small LED light in the front illuminates, to function as a flashlight. I actually found that rather handy while hooking up the projector to various cables, etc.
