I'll "third" the Epson recommendation. They're a bit pricey, but as mentioned, bulb replacements are cheap and easy, very very easy. Takes me less than 5 minutes to swap a bulb. 

Great experience with support as well. Sometimes they've even fixed/replaced a projector out of warranty.

Epsons are my favorite, but they're not always cheap when you're talking
short-throw.  Regular short throws run around $800 without mounting arm
($200).  Ultra short throws start around $1100.

On the other hand, bulbs are only like $125.
