Default Looking for 80 inch flat panel TV

I got answers for the reason why I could not find in the market reason too short compared with LCD flat panel reasonably
priced 80 inch TV. But is the life time of DLP projector really shorter than LCD or Plamsa TV ?

In short, yes, you will have to be replacing those bulbs every now and then. If you're talking about overall lifetime, like when the product just plain no longer works, then I don't have an answer for you.

DLPs are more likely to need repair or parts replacement as time goes on because of more moving parts, expensive High Intensity lamps with a more limited life (3-8,000 hours), and many get collapsing light tunnels which often have repair shops saying you need to replace the whole light engine instead of just the tunnel so the cost becomes too high to spend that much money to fix them without it covered under a warranty. I had an extended warranty that covered unlimited lamp replacements for the life of the warranty and went through 3 (at about $250-350.00 each during that time) as well as a light tunnel collapse where they replaced the whole light engine under warranty, so I would suggest such a warranty, but make sure it covers unlimited lamps as most do not. To be fair, we had it on for about 6,000 hours per year so it got heavy use but I now have a Panasonic plasma as the main TV and my DLP is in the Kid's TV room.

No tech is perfect and they all have defects/issues at times, but DLP & LCD RPTVs are among the least reliable at this point.

You have an 85 inch Panny plasma?!?

When you have company over to your house, do you charge them admission? I would!

You gotta operate like any other theater (any house that has an 85" Panny plasma counts as a movie theater in my book)...charge them admission per movie, and also sell them overpriced popcorn and sodas!

Against the law to do that, according to the MPAA and the DMCA...
