Out of curiosity, how long did your bulb last you?

My Samsung DLP is a little a year and a half old.
May I ask what reseller you found that had the best deal?

Hance wrote:Depends on your contrast/brightness settings but they usually dim noticeably at about 10,000 hours. I've a 7 year old RPTV upstairs that's still plenty bright, but I've never run it in "torch" mode.I have no idea on the life span of them but if they are even close to the life span of a regular CRT it will be a long long time before I have to worry about that.
