    There are two types of projection...


    CRT- these have three large CRT's- Red, Green and Blue. Exactly like a standard TV, just alot bigger. Lifespan approx 10,000 hours
    Expensive to replace each CRT.


    LCD- a bright bulb shines through a LCD panel. Bulb lifespan approx 5,000 hours. About £300 each. Also LCD matrix pixel death, and eventual failure of the panel.

    Toshiba RPTV are CRT.

    Approx £1000 for a set of tubes.

    How long does a normal TV last? 10 years+

    I think you're worrying too much! LCD has a higher running cost, because of bulb replacement and possible matrix failure.
