My LG CRT HDTV Monitor had its convergence board die way before the lamps did. It took only 4 years to do so. Still waiting for the baord to be replaced.
If you look a certain abrs, they still have the 3 lamp projection style TV and they are still going on strong. Like Hugh mentionned, it will fade over time but how will you really know especially if you don't put another identical newer TV right beside it? I wouldn't worry at all.
