Last time I checked our old Samsung HP-s5053 (circa 2006) had almost 59000 hours on it, that was about a year ago. I don't check it much because going into the service menu resets all the picture settings back to default. It got relegated to the bedroom sometime back and gets used mainly for gaming these days.
Repaired once at @ 1year due to the sparkling issue those sets had. New panel and various boards.
