I found the expansion of 4:3 images to a widescreen format to be acceptable on the Samsung models.
With DLP there is no burn in possible, so there is no need to distort a 4:3 image, just window box it.
While not on the same subject, and I apologize, I also took a look at a number of 50" plasma screens. Yeah, they are more expensive, but they all were very bright and easy to look at from every angle ! One thing that I noticed, and I know it has been discussed here is that the Panasonics and Sharp models definitely BUZZED. In Denver, we are at 5200-5400 feet so this has been a concern. The Pioneer, Sony, and Samsung models did not have any detectable buzzing associated with their operation. The salesperson was knowledgable and indicated that this was a concern, and that some sets buzzed at this altitude, others did not.... they were trying to have manufacturers produce sets which would be altitude friendly.
This is only an issue with plasmas... dlp, lcd, lcos, etc. don't buzz
I still think I am going to buy a Samsung....
They make models in half a dozen different technologies, which one? The HLN617W?
