wall mounting projector screen

I have a newbie question about wall mounting a projector screen. I got a 100 inch Carada Precision screen. It comes with all the hardware except the screws to mount the bracket to the wall.

I'm putting it in my basement with metal studs behind drywall. I went to my local home depot and he suggested use drywall anchors (the ones he suggested supposedly hold 50 pounds each) and put a bunch of those in to screw in the brackets.

I think it's more secure to secure the brackets into the metal studs right? Or does it really not matter for a screen if I'm putting a bunch of drywall anchors?

I would screw into the studs with hex head self tapping screws.

How much it will hold depends on what gauge the studs are (likely 25), but I don't see an issue as long as you arfe using more than 2 or 3 screws.
