"Long life for a great TV."4.5 starson by tho_x_tran
Pros: Long life. Front loading, per instructions, seems very easy to replace.
Cons: Lumen seems weakened over age, maybe nothing can be done about that
Summary: Last much longer than other brands as far as I know. Got 2 model PT43LC14, both are in 6th year now and still use the 1st bulb with a little over 8000 hrs.
Heard about the problem with previous generation LC13, this generation LC14 seems not having that problem.
