VGA/SVGA Projectors comparison

I'm considering 2 projector models
1) EB-X18 at US$609
2) EB-W18 at US$752

My requirements:

a) Often the room's fluorescent lights are on, so I'll need something
    that can be projected clearly in a normal-lit room/office.  Which
    of the two is better?

b) I've encountered models of projectors which takes very long to
    power up & detect.  Which of the two (or any similar cost-range
    models) powers up fast & detects the VGA signals fast?

c) I've encountered models which the color is occasionally will
    'change' due to some movement of the cable/contact points.
    Which of the two (or any other similar range models) has
    less of this problem

d) If I plan to use a Galaxy phone to project, which of the two
    (or any other similar range models) will have adaptors that
    could make this happen?  Kindly suggest the required
    adaptors (I suppose it's mini-USB to VGA adaptors or
    via Wifi?)

e) a more 'quiet' model (or other models) will be nice: some
    older models make a lot of noise

f) how good/natural are the colors projected is not crucial.
   A more durable model is preferred

g) Is it good to be able to support HDMI as some Macbooks
    & high-end laptops come with HDMI ports nowadays?



Specs of the 2 models are given below:

I can't recall if Macbook uses HDMI or thunderbolt or some other
ports to project out its display.  However, a number of vendors
& visitors often carry Macbooks to our office, so the ability to
project from Macbook Pro is crucial

http://www.amazon.com/Epson-Corporation-PowerLite-1960-Projector/dp/B008Z1PSB2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1398881338&sr=8-2&keywords=5000+lumens+projector+with+HDMI+port

Is the above model a portable model or it has to be mounted?
Think we need 5000 lumens & above if projecting in a normal
daylight room.  This model has HDMI & Displayport ports

Most Macbooks come with a dvi output.
What we do is is use a dvi to vga adapter for our projectors..
Apple does have it's quirks.
All of the Epsons are pretty decent,you will pay more for wi fi and compactness.

I just ordered this one,it's got everything.

Eye-catchers on the conference table

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.

Does the model you just got

a) powers up & ready for use within 10 secs ?

b) clear enough to the audience in a fluorescent-lit room
    (ie the lights are not turned off) ?

Is dvi = displayport ?

_Commented:
no. while both are digital, the signals are different.
A quick comparison:

note:
While DP is good, it never really seemed to catch on.
