    Is there an aftermarket company that sells DLP, LCD, LCOS, rear projection television lamps? I am interested to know what the replacement cost for these lamps are before deciding on front projection vs rear projection.

    I would imagine that there is a developing market (i.e. demand) for replacement lamps, but I am not sure if you are asking about non-OEM parts availability or just whether manufacturers have available sufficient lamps for routine replacement.

    I think there has been a report, or two, regarding a predicted shortage of lamps in the front projection market that may or may not be the result of increased demand in other markets (RP).

    Are you afraid of there not being replacement lamps when needed?

    Well, that is of course a concern as well, but my main concern is pricing. FP lamps are $300-400, since I cannot find a source on the web to verify I wondered if anyone knew how much RP lamps for the technologies I mentioned are going for in the aftermarket.
