Advice.. Worth Keeping Samsung DLP?


I've got a 50" Samsung DLP (HLT5076sx) and I need to replace the lamp for a third time. I made the mistake of buying a non-OEM (not Philips or Osram) replacement bulb a little over a year ago from shopjimmy. It crapped out on me 10 months later. Fortunately it had a 1-year warranty and so they sent me a free replacement. The second one crapped out on me after two months. Ugh. Anyway, thus far I've invested $40 on the bulb and $100 on a DLP Chip (which as worked flawlessly for the past 4 years I might say). So that's a total of $140. Do I invest another $80 or so on a Philips bulb and replace it once again or should I just throw in the towel and buy a new 4K TV? My budget this year is under $450 some options are limited.

Thanks for any input!
