It's funny that when you didn't get the answer you were looking for to the question that you asked you try to discredit our answers. I'm not going to claim that CD's don't go bad - it's fairly well documented that it does happen, but it's most definitely not as rampant as you're trying to suggest. Looking forward to your negative response to this...
Guess you should have re-read the original post before replying.

The original post was that it is nearly impossible to predict failure rate in hours with new technology. The CD was simply an example. There are countless others, ESPECIALLY in HDTV, not the least of which are the Mitsubishi Light Engines for their DLPs. The real answer is Mitsubishi can throw out numbers like that all they want, that does not make them correct, again, as witnessed by the Mitsubishi Light Engine Failures.
BTW, could you please show me what I have posted about specs on this TV that have not been eventually borne out, from price, problems with Green and REC 709 with the current firmware etc.
After seeing a good number of Mitsubishi Light Engine failures, I know that just because Mitsubishi says it, doesn't make it true (and that is also true of other companies as well, but none of these are "reference standard sets").
