That is certainly interesting, but nobody 'tortures' their projectors like this in real life. It sounds like the LCDs 'failed' due to continous exposure to high heat.
I agree but it certainly gives one solid reason for picking one over the other especially in a commercial or educational setting.

What if the life span is tripled or more by having the projector run for only 12 hours in a 24 hour day?
With anything even remotely resembling 'normal' use, it's probably far more likely that a fan will fail in either technology or the motor that spins the colour wheel in a DLP projector will fail before the actual panel does.
