    How long will the lamps die out? And can I pick up a replacement lam
    at my local best buy store or circuit city, or do I have to go t
    their official website and buy it from them

    If you call the manufacture service rep for your TV set, they can tell you
    where to buy replacement lamps locally. They may also be able to sell you
    directly. With many of these manufacture reps, you can give a credit card
    number over the phone, and they will ship the lamp directly to your place.

    As for myself, I don't like rear screen TV sets. My preference is to have a
    nice flat panel display.

    The new rear screen TV's coming out are supposed to soon be using high power
    LED technology instead of a lamp. This technology will last much longer, and
    works out to be much lower in cost in the end.

    I had to deal with several of these when they first came out . We had no
    luck finding them outside a tv repair shop ordering them for us at aprox
    300$ each .
    Prices vary now and many are available on ebay ( beware )

    Do your homework before you buy one of these tv sets .. some of them
    were junk from the git-go .

    I dont remember ever replacing a bulb in a Samsung set
     
  4. Like a plasma which burns? DLP rear projectors aren't perfect - but then
    neither is LCD or plasma.
