    Hi Guys

    The lamp on my sanyo lcd projector has just gone and its about £400 for a new lamp.

    So i am looking at getting a rear projection tv but do they have the same lamp life issues as lcd projectors (mine lasted 1900hrs), I ask this as it will be on for about 19 hours a day everyday and if they dohave the same life time then i will need to look for something else.

    Thanks

    o right, this forum is for dlp projection units which are different to rear projection tv as these are high definition capable. you might get a better response for help from the tv thread. dlps start from around £900 i think for the lg model

    You've got nothing to be sorry about prices of DLP sets have been steadily dropping over the last 6 months .
    As more set's get sold economies of scale kicks in & they'll get cheaper.
