I have a 9500 and it's great PJ! It did get replaced with a new one within the first year because of very slight pink and green. This was only visible on a pure white sceen..the replacement is perfect in all regards.
Mine has been ISFed and has 700 hrs. on a new blub, I still have a new spare. I would only go for a 6010/20 if I had the money.
If you're really into 3-D, I guess the 5010/20 would be the way to go, but don't they have a white housing? It sure wouldn't look good in my black HT.
Mine cost $3400 back in 2010 and now it's not made anymore. Since you won't be able to see in action, I'd try to get him down in price. $1000 to $1500 would probably be a better price. If it has that pink/green, I'd ask to give it back for a refund.
Tough decisions to make and good luck with whatever you do.
...finally retired and spending time in my HT!!!
