    I have heard, & read lots of horror stories for RCA DLP
    units, like units needing an $1,800 light engine, bulbs being
    over $ 600.00, parts on order for many months, & RCA
    actually having to offer replacement units. Put light engine in,
    only to find it's not bad. I haven't seen one working yet, to
    see what they are like. Anyone here actually have one, or
    another brand, & what do you think of them? Some say
    nobody can fix them. Sky

    Have repaired quite a few of these. However Thomson's prices for the repair
    items are totally out of line when comparing comparable parts with other
    manufacturers. Light engines are one of the easiest in the industry to
    change, colour wheel a piece of cake. Seen some power supply and digital
    board issues. IMHO I'd probably drop my quid on another brand just due to
    the poor reputation of the newer Thomson products, these included.
