beware of short life on lamps in dlp televisions
just had the lamp go on my toshiba 46" dlp tv in under 2,000 hrs. these are supposed to last 5,000-8,000 hrs.
a quick check of forums on line show no one is getting aven 2800 hrs.
looks like toshiba and samsung are claiming the origonal lamps are defective and not the norm.
the lamps were replaced under warranty but be aware these lamps out of warranty are 200-300.00 bucks and thats changing it yourself.
time will tell how long the new bulbs will last but this could get expensive changing bulbs every 1-1/2- 2 years
