I bought mine off a store on ebay last time. DLP lamp express has a nice price, doesn't come with a housing but I have a spare now. http://www.dlplampxpress.com/Toshiba...p/tbl4-lmp.htm

Well the 3rd bulb has blown out on the DLP set with 4471 hours on it. I replaced it last April on the 9th so that equals out to the tv being on 13.3 hours a day. Luckily I have a spare I used to replace it with last night but I gotta buy another one from DLP Lamp Xpress. They now cost $115.
I was just saying the other night the tv was starting to look pretty dim so I had a feeling it was getting ready to go out.

Most of the newer sets ( ~<2 years old) have anti burn in logic, moving the menu around slightly so reduce the chances.

odd that the manufacturers resisted testing at 90+ hours.
