Advice on new projector

I was looking into getting the Epson 5030 until I heard of the bad input lag. With me spending about 30% of my screen time gaming, I need a projector with as little input lag as possible. My top price for a projector is 4000. I will be using this for a 106 inch Dragonfly high contrast 0.9 gray screen. Room will have some light at times. The projector will be ceiling mounted about 16 feet from the screen. Any suggestions or advise is welcome. Thanks!

The Sony VPL-HW55ES will have the lowest lag for gaming out of the projectors with high contrast. The Runco LS-5 will have lower input lag (I measured 23ms) but that projector is more expensive. The Sony is around 40ms if I remember correctly.

At your price point, HW40 and HW55 are your best bet.
