Extending the Lamp Life of Your HDTV Microdisplay

Some of these are pretty common sense, but still good to know for others. Anything you can do to save a few days or months of your beloved HDTV is well worth it IMHO.

 Lamp life varies by manufacturer design based on the application of the product and varies anywhere from 2000 to 8000 hours. Lamp replacements run from $200-$500 but most consumer rear projection displays are in the $200-$300 range and also lean more towards longer rather than shorter life design. The good news here is unlike any other display you have owned you can bring these back to brand new performance by simply replacing the lamp.
