also since DLP have a rainbow effect issue a lot, in almost all major brands, i wouldnt wana risk it at all...i can live with some lag but not with color distortions..
RBE is not a color distortion in the image in any DLP, it is a optical illusion our eyes create that only impacts some people, which creates a quick flash of color from time-to-time. It doesn't affect many people, and most people it does affect only get mildly affected by it. I definitely can see RBE issues, but it barely impacts my viewing experience.
I would consider the entry level W1070 and the slightly better image model than the Epson 3020. If 3D isn't important than the Panasonic AR100 and the Epson 8350 are both great models. But, LCD doesn't really start to outperform the entry level DLP models until you get into the Epson 5030, the Panasonic AE8000U, or the significantly better image that the JVC RS46 delivers.
I bought and use the W1070 and I'm happy with it, but when/if I upgrade in a few years, it will likely be to a JVC LCoS projector.
As far as your ceiling fan goes, you have a big issues there. Projectors tend to go above the screen height, so if you need the projector lower, you will need one with lens shift. The 3020 doesn't offer this, the AR100 and 8350 models do, the 5030 and better models do as well.
