Another post i read here implied that it's possible to see how many hours you've been using the current lamp... I bought a RU-44sz63d a little over a week ago, open box from the store. I was told that someone had purchased it and brought it back 3 days later to exchange for a plasma... but I'd like to check the hours on the lamp to be sure it wasn't a display model that's been on for a long time. Anyone know how I can find out the number of hours? Thanks. And, before my 30 days are up and I can't return anymore... just appx how much are replacement lamps for this LG? Want to make sure this isn't going to be a really expensive investment, or if I should just go with something that will last me >10 years... Thanks.
