Some projectors have lamp-output controls, so you can run them in
less-bright-but-longer-life mode.  Anybody use those?

We have a pair of JVC G150CL's (not being used in an AG, but who cares)
whose rated bulb life is 1000 hours in "normal" mode, and 1900 hours in
"lamp output control" mode when set to minimum brightness,
which is still quite bright.
