How easy is it to replace bulb on HLN DLP RPTV?

Subject says it all. I am considering getting the HLN507W, but I wanted to know if the bulb is user replacable?

For anyone who has done it themselves, is it particularly involved / dangerous, etc.

I build my own computers so I am fairly comfortable taking things apart. (But not necessarily putting it back together ;) )

On my HLM507W, it is very easy. The lamp comes in an assembly. Unscrew one screw on a back cover on the left side of the set, take the cover off, loosen two screws on the lamp assembly, slide the assembly out, slide the new lamp assembly in, tighten the two screws on the assembly, replace the cover, and put the screw back. It took 2 or 3 minutes. It is definitely user replaceable. I would assume the HLN models are the same.

I was afraid when I read an old post on a UK HT forum saying it wasn't user replaceable.

I understand that Samsung has even added instructions in the HLN usser's manual.
Does anyone know if it's possible to replace the lamp with a more powerful one?

One obvious choice is the 120w that's used in the 617, which may be completely safe and compatible.
