I got a Model B hi-power last week, and it did indeed have waves at the sides. The projector's image was visibly distorted as a result of these waves. I was able to eliminate most of them by using thumbtacks in the black borders to tension the screen a bit.
The casing to the hi-power arrived with a dent, and I sent it back. The replacement will be a fast-fold Cinema Vision screen. The fabric snaps onto an aluminum screen and is supposed to be perfectly flat.
If you are on a budget and plan to use a masking system (or are not bothered by aesthetics), the thumb tack approach is OK. If $$$ is not a big concern, I'd go with a frame-mounted screen.
