on plasmas and LCD flat panel runs around 60,000 hours. These TVs have a measurement called Half Bright Life. This means that after this time you may have to turn the brightness up. This measurement is based on 8 hours a day, 7 days a week. Figure about 20 years.
Due to the cost of the larger TVs I consider them an investment. Insure an investment. Anything can go wrong. And you haven't lived until you try to convince Sony, Panasonic, Sharp, etc. that your broken TV is still in warranty.
