    I have both a Toshiba 56inch and 40inch Rear Projection TV, both very nearly 2 years old now, I have read negative reports on the life of rear projection sets and the cost of replacing "bulbs". Has anyone any idea on what sort of life (hours) I should be able to expect?

    Hi,

    almost all of the Toshibas including the 56" use three picture tubes with a life expectancy which is almost similar to a conventional tv picture tube (MTBF 10.000 hours?).

    The 40" may be an LCD rear projection model, in which case there should be a single bulb with a shorter life span.

    Regards
    Carsten.

    My 40" Toshiba RP is now approaching 4 years old and still going fine.

    This particular model isn't LCD based btw.
