Short Throw Projector Gaming Recommendation

So the LG is a pico projector rated at 600 lumens. I would not recommend this projector unless portability is a primary concern. I also don’t think this classified as short throw?
The BenQ is 3200 lumens so at least you’ll be able to projector ‘projector’ size images. One quick note though: the 632ST isn’t 1080p. It’s a WXGA (1280x800) projector with a 16:10 aspect ratio. This is fairly common for business projectors which is what this is.
Then there is the question of input lag. Lag is a concern if you plan to use this for gaming. I can’t find specs on either projector. I’d be surprised is the LG was under 80ms if only because all LG projectors have featured a ton of lag. The BenQ... my guess is it’s somewhere between 32ms and 48ms. But that’s a GUESS based on similar models from BenQ.
So if I had to choose: the BenQ. But, honestly, if I had my choice I’d wait and save up some more cash or maybe look for something not short throw. An affordable DLP with 16ms of lag would be my target. Not sure what’s available in Japan but here in the states the Optoma 143x is a popular projector which has just about the lowest cost of entry for any of the major brands that still comes equipped with a 16ms game mode.
What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...
