I'm shopping for my first HT system and can't decide if I want to get a rear projection TV like the Toshiba 57HDX82 or a front projector like the Panasonic 300U. Are they both basically the same in that the bulb life in each of them is about 2000 hours and cost $400-500 to replace? I will mostly use the system for watching regular TV (70%) and sometimes for movies (25%) and Xbox (5%). I get the feeling that I would be able to use the rear projection system as a TV, but the front projector system is only good for movies. Does anyone use a front projector for just watching regular TV? I am also currently renting an apartment. Any advice?
