The PJD5533w’s remote control is a small, black remote with mostly black buttons and white lettering. The Power, Menu and Dynamic Eco buttons are colored red, blue and blue respectively to make them stand out. All of the buttons are appropriately grouped and cover all the important functions without accessing them through the menu.
In addition to the usual menu and navigation buttons, there are buttons to directly access the VGA computer or video inputs, mouse functions, image auto-sync, blank and freeze, AV mute, timer, lock, digital zoom and keystone correction.
There is also a customized button labeled “My Button” which can be set to any one of a number of functions that best fits the presenter’s needs. There are also buttons to mute and control the volume of the projector’s 2-watt built-in speaker.
The buttons are not backlit or even glow-in-the-dark, but that is standard for multimedia projectors, where backlighting can often be distracting.
