I just joined the club and ordered one locally from a Belgian webshop (Coolblue Beamershop) for a cool blue €569! I guess this must a sale price because a new model is coming up? It will be boxed a few months, we have the carpenter now making the stud walls in the HT, so there's a lot more to be done before we can enjoy it. The plan is to use only the 16/9 part of our 2,35/1 screen. Will still be 100" wide and I have the masking panels.
The PJ I really want for that big screen is the Sony VW500ES, but that's not going to happen immediately. Therefore I saw no point in spending 2-3K for something that would still be clearly below what we saw from the Sony. I had set a €1,000 budget (+/- 300) so I am very happy since it's a lot cheaper still. The difference is more than enough for a mount and a HDMI cable.
