Some people report a gradual darkening of the picture but for most it just goes without warning.

If I had a DLP or LCD projector with a replacable lamp, I would certainly purchase the extended warranty that provided bulb replacement, however I would also purchase a "stand by" extra bulb to keep around so as to have uninterrupted viewing pleasure, regardless of how long it took to get a warranty replacement. I doubt if BB or CC or Wally World, or whatever stocks a vast array of bulbs, anyway.

I am of the opinion that any purchase of one of these TV's that needs periodic bulb replacement should be figured with an extra bulb in the initial purchase price.

Myself, I have CRT projectors, I'm good for a decade or more.
