    The XP18 will work best with a 4:3 screen.

    The projector has a 16:9 mode to give some of the benefits of anamorphic DVD so you won't lose out on the higher quality transfers.

    The throw ratio for this projector is 1.9~2.47:1. For every 1ft of picture width you need between 1.9 and 2.47ft of throw distance. So, a 10ft wide image requires 19~24.7ft of throw.

    Check your screen width then calculate the row required, or you can divide the throw by the each number (1.9, 2.47) to work out screen width.

    Regards

    Every projector that I've seen anyway,
    The width stays the same. Your best bet is to demo the thing though. Take a list of relevent questions with you. Remember to balance size of picture with quality. Maybe 6 or 7 feet screens would be better.

    Dealmaker,
    You are right, the picture width stays the same, it's the height that alters.

    Regards
