Which is more reliable, maintenance free and more lasting, Projection or tube? Thanks
CRT rear projection lasts as long as a conventional tv and possibly longer according to some reports. I have not yet seen anything to the contrary although I cannot speak about LCD or DLP. The latter two are prone to pixels failing though.
Off topic - Thanks Dave (Delta) for the help you gave me via email re Tosh and Brightness - they finally got back to me today with some positve stuff - Much obliged <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
yep rear pro can live a very long live . you just have to be a little more carfull eg don't have the contrast set at full and leave a static image on display
can you get at least 5 years out of a rpt and if not how long?
My RPTV lasted 18 months, see <a href="http://www.avforums.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=7&t=000958" target="_blank">here</a>
Daves right, I had some bad luck, but I still woudn't buy another RPTV, Plasma CRT or LCD next.
Timh is an exception, he has had some bad luck. RP CRT tv's are generally more reliable than LCD or DLP and regular tv's.
