The bulb life on the Sony may be that short. The screen life is likely to be about 10x that -- or much more. Not a factor.
The new DLP sets are expected to start at about $3500-4000 for a 43" set and not much more for a 50" set. They are expected to beginning appearing late this quarter or sometime next quarter. Look for Samsung's models (43 and 50) and Hitachi's (55").
There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
