In the past I have been 100% against an RPTV. They just didn't do it for me, and I disliked strongly the 'off angle' viewing of them. Be it DLP, LCD, or old school CRT. I hated them. But recently JVC's HD-ILA and Sony's SXRD versions of LCoS have really caught my eye and I am giving them strong consideration for my upcoming TV purchase instead of a plasma. Here is my question/concern on the LCoS based systems. I have read repeatedly (but often in old articles and reviews as finding recent ones on LCoS is proving difficult for me) that the blub life on LCoS systems is pretty darn short (like 2,000 hours). Best case scenario for me, that would be all of one years viewing if it didn't crap out early on me. Is this correct that LCoS bulbs are running about 2,000 hours? If I am incorrect, what is the avg lifespan on these bulbs? Does JVC and/or Sony have any new generation TVs in the pipeline with much longer bulb life, or switching to an LED source as some LCD manufactureres have to eliminate the color wheel? And yes, I know the LCoS does not have a color wheel. Also, is there a substantial difference between LCoS and 3LCD? What is 3LCD and how does it differ from regular LCD? How about compared to LCoS? Thanks!
