Then again do I need the added features? it would be nice not cut dry wall and run cables (WHDMI), stretch 2.35 movies to full 16.9 screen to avoid top and bottom bars (lens memory).
If I were you I would wait since it is this close to Cedia. Once you have a projector where you can walk up to the screen and get the projector's focus dead on with the remote you will never want a manual focus projector. Plus the HW50 might sell for cheaper after the HW55 is out, plus another manufacturer might come out with an even better projector value.
