A regular DLP has to have the bulb replaced after maybe a year and a half to 2 years but they also have LED ones now that should never need the bulb replaced.
Here's a 60 inch regular DLP by Mitsubishi for $1099
I bought myself a Samsung 46" DLP back in early '06 when I was feeling adventurous. It runs daily for multiple hours, sometimes I'll leave it on over night and the bulb is still going strong. We have LCD's in dang near every room here, but it'll be a cold day in hell before they swap my DLP for an LCD. I cant imagine how nice the new ones must be, I prefer the picture quality on my Samsung over any LCD in the house. I've heard great things about Mitsu's new DLPs.
