Do pixels get stuck over time, or are the ones you see stuck when you get the set the only ones that will ever be stuck?


If they do stick over time, does it mean 5-10 years from now I could see a considerable amount of them?

The catch is that there are no LCD RP's 5+ years old, so there is no objective answer to how many pixel failures there will be. Based on discussions in this forum, I would say that pixels can fail during use but most bad pixels will arrive that way from the store. I've read nothing to suggest that pixels will fail regularly as a function of time.


If you are concerned, getting an extended warranty can be reassuring. In theory, DLP sets are also less likely to have a pixel failure problem. Again, there is little historical data to consider.
