Each side of the projector has an infrared port (22' range each) for freedom of movement when using the remote control, which doubles as a pointer. (The remote rests in a slot on the back of the unit when not in use.)
The power cord plugs into the front of the unit a couple inches away from the lens, which is either good or awkward, depending on your setup. I had no problem with the cord being in front; it doesn't interfere with the projection at all.
The unit has a drop-down tilt foot in the front and two screw tilt feet in the rear.
The lens itself is a manual zoom adjusted with a lever set just outside the focus ring.
Controls on the remote include Source, which autoselects the video input; Auto Adjust; Magnify +/- for zooming in on areas of the picture; Pointer; Picture Mute; Power; Menu; Enter; Cancel; and four-way select.
The menu calls up a number of image options, including source select, picture (for brightness, contrast, color, hue, etc.), volume, image options (keystone, color temperature, lamp mode, gamma correction and several advanced options), setup, menu mode and help. (Note that menu options vary according to the video source.)
