Oh yes they do! Most of them have multiple flourescent lamps. As far as the 60,000 hour claim: If they want to claim this, I hope they are willing to stand by it. If you watch your television 4 hours a day you should expect more than 40 years of service!
Those who think they know everything annoy those of us who do.
I've noticed a lot of LCD TV panels also making this boast. To me, though, it means that the Panel/TV will probably last as long as a CRT TV. From the article:
"This is a longer life than a tube based television."
In my short 48 years, the average color CRT lasted about 10-15 years. Plasmas, evidently, started off with fairly short lives. So, I think the statement is more of a statement about the longevity of the TV set... that it will last as long as CRTs of previous generations.
I am simply hoping for reasonable longevity. 10 years would be great, 20 years would be better (at less than 4-6 hours per day).
