Same here, just replaced the lamp on our 65736 a couple weeks ago. Hour counter was lost after repairs last year. I figure about 9000 hours; 3 years 8 months.
I wasn't as lucky with my warranty though (DTV Express): They quit on us when the Light Engine broke after 2 years (or rather: Bankers Warranty quit on us, and DTV Express just said sorry). Mitsubishi helped us out though, and covered part of the repair -- and did it again when the Main Board broke last year. But of course that meant we had to buy the lamp ourselves. That's $700 in repairs + lamp that was supposed to be covered
Despite all that, we also enjoy this TV a lot. Excellent PQ (if properly calibrated)! And Mitsubishi demonstrated care and support far beyond what I think most vendors would do.
