    Plasma and LCD TV's are rated for 60,000 hours lifetime. Thats a tv that is a higher brand and also well maintained. Projections last between 2-4 years for 1 bulb. Each bulb can be replaced but cost about 300-350 a piece. So theoretically if the projection tv remains wholly good and its just the bulb that goes out, then as long as you buy new bulbs the tv can last even longer than plasma and LCD.

    I know Philips manufactures the lamp used in Sony XBR's and their rated between 6,000 and 8,000 hrs. My friends blew in less than a month. So it could be really anytime.
