Mr. Norton,

Having owned a 50A2000 SXRD RPTV, I am curious about Sony's projectors. Do they suffer from the same progressive failure of the blue light path (effectively greening the image, usually within 8000 hours of use), or do the front projectors have some sort of heat/dust mitigation that the rear projection sets lacked?

Not that I'm in the market for a $25k device, but I may eventually be interested in a sub-$5k projector, and wanted to know if I should dismiss Sony over reliability concerns.
