That is a pretty short throw so I would venture that either would suffice, but it will be underpowered in 3d. I was firing from 18-1/2' with an A lens onto a 1.0 gain 100" 16:9 screen and the image was acceptable but I wouldn't have minded a little more lumens especially as the bulb aged.
The further back you can mount it the better contrast you'll realize, albeit at expense of brightness.

I for one love my HD250 and will be replacing it in the next month or two so I'm debating what route to go.
We are gluttons for punishment.
Seriously though; the JVC are IMO one of the best projectors for me based on my scenario. I'm not really a fan of 3d (good, bad, or otherwise), so poor 3d performance wasn't a concern. My wife was sensitive to RBE so that ruled out the DLP's. I hated the "digital" image of LCD so......................
The market is pretty competitive nowadays and I think most people would be happy with just about any of the current crop of projectors. In fact, I'd be willing to bet this 4810 is far from a night/day difference from my 20, even though it's 3+ generations newer.
A perfectly converged JVC is plenty sharp. The RS60, not withstanding it's other shortcomings was one of the sharpest projectors to date. Problem is; the quality control varied greatly on convergence. Nothing is going to trump a single chip DLP on average.
