The anamorphic squeeze done by a $:3 projector is not the same as using a 16:9 projector like the Sony. The squeeze will give you improved resolution, but cannot use all the resolution - you will get a very, very good picture. This is true for all 4:3 projectors - Seleco, Dwin, Marantz etc. The Panamorph lens basically turns a 4:3 projector into a 16:9 projector and all the resolution of an anamorphic DVD is used. I have compared a 4:3 DLP aganst a 16:9 LCD and I preferred the DLP - so don't worry about it the slight lose in resolution!
Gary, you're right - the projector won't have to be moved. To get the most out of this and any other projector construct a "floating" masking system. I put instructions on a post call, "To Save a Thousand Words" a few weeks ago. Look it up on the digital projector site.
Remember with this projector - uncheck the "white segment", try the different gamma settings, use a hipower screen and mask the screen, and use a good proscan DVD player, scaler or HTPC.
