I'm looking for a ceiling mounted projector for a home theater. This projector will be used to watch movies, TV and play controller based computer games.
- Long bulb life (my assumption is that the projector will be utilized a couple hours a day on various activities mentioned above)
- Should have vivid colors and not have "streaking" during fast movement in action sequences or games
- 1080p (or higher, if available) resolution
- Multiple device inputs is a plus, preferably with each being HDMI
- Small size. "Small" is subjective, but I don't want a giant object hanging from the ceiling. Smaller should imply lighter.
Some bonus features:
- On/Off and other settings (contrast/brightness/input device/etc) can be configured to utilize a Harmony remote control
- Quick On, less than 10 seconds
- Bulb replacement can be done without removing the entire projector from the ceiling
Most important to me are the first two bullet points. I've seen and used many projectors that "streak" during fast movement. I want to ensure this does not occur. It would ideally be below $700 and quiet.
