Really? Compared to what? How so? The failure modes of a micro-mirror array driven by a complex processor illuminated by a high intensity light source and colored by a mechanically spinning color wheel is not obviously simpler than a 2M pixel array driven by a complex processor and backlit. Also, a simple count of "failure modes" says nothing; likelihood of failures matters. And as LCDs can have pixel failure, certainly DLPs can have pixel failure via individual mirror failures (or the driving electronic pathway)? Are there decent stats on failure rates of DLP vs Plasma vs LCD?
