I've got the same bulb life question. Some have said that you can get more bulb life by running the 9000 in Theater Mode at 600 lumens instead of its regular 800 lumen mode. But there is a timer and at 2000 hours you're supposed to replace the bulb to prevent bulb explosion and damage to the 9000. I assume the timer does not go slower when running at 600 lumens, so there doesn't seem to be any advantage... except blacks may blacker because there is less light output.
