As noted in the thread earlier, lag is not a product of a particular technology, but instead is a product of how real-time the processing is in the projector. That said, I would give DLP a slight nod on gaming if all else is equal since DLP has no convergence issues (but the 8200 has minor pixel mapping problem). DLP also does pans a bit smoother than LCD like when swinging around because the DLP pixels themselves update faster during motion (nothing to do with gaming lag here though).
As far as the Epson 8350 vs. the Pro8200 in gaming, they are both very good for gaming, the Pro8200 can in some cases be sharper than the 8350 because of the 8350's uncertain convergence, but it can go both ways (a really well converged 8350 could be slightly sharper than the Pro8200 since 8200 has pixel mapping issue). On average, I'd say the Pro8200 is probably a little sharper, has a brighter best mode, and is probably a little better for gaming, although the 8350 does do better blacks by a little bit, hope this helps. The Pro8200 has better pixel fill (less SDE), so if you like sitting real close during gaming, then the Pro8200 is probably even more so the winner.
