I have a 12x18 ft basement living area that I am looking at turning into an entertainment/theater room and need some help picking out a projector that I would like to mount on the ceiling. The room does have a pretty big window and a walk out area. The wall next to the walk out area is where I would like to put a 100in screen. And the room does have a ceiling mounted light.
I would primary use the projector for gaming (ps3/4/pc), connecting my laptop, and movie watching. 1080p native resolution/great picture (1900x1200 support is a plus) (aka good picture quality), being very quiet and good lamp life are important for me. Budget is about $1200, but am flexible (though prefer cheaper).
From the projectors I've looked at, the Optoma hd25-lv with it's throw distance seems like a good fit, but some reported a buzzing noise and I didn't see people praising the warranty as compared to with EPSON projectors.
Any help with picking out a good projector and any other advice?
Here are pics of the room, if it helps:

The wall I'm looking at putting screen on, would cover most of the width, be above the outlets and below the vent area...
Two year swapout warranty.
