    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.

    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.
