    Reading an indepth review of this PJ, it said that due to the vertical offset it has to be placed below the screen, by 27.3% of the screen height. Now if it was ceiling mounted and would be upside, would that me mean that it would have to be 27.3% above the screen or is that just being stupid?

    Nope, you are exactly right. The projector is mounted upside down on the ceiling and using the menu, the image is flipped so it shows correctly but it still projects lower than itself so your screen will need to be slightly lower on the wall than the height of the projector.

    Bear in mind that most screens will have around 12" of black border at the top so if you mount the projector on the ceiling with a short bracket, and you mount the screen on the ceiling then the vertical offset will be more or less correct.
