Are you a troll or something?
The first generations of DLP, LCD, plasma, etc all aren't yet evolved into a mature technology. Just like a car or any other product, you're pretty much screwed when it breaks out of warranty. Want reliability? Drive a Honda. Want a tv to last 10 years, by a tube.
I have a Jan-2006 manufactured Samsung DLP and love it. It does have a loud fan but I'll have it fixed before the warranty expires. I know this TV will not likely last 10 years without eating a color wheel and blowing a few bulbs... no problem!
