Is it worth replacing the bulbs in a 720p rear projection TV?

Episode 1235 (1:55:56)

Jim from Menifee, CA

Jim isn't sure whether or not he should spend the $300 for a new bulb in his 52" JVC 720p DLP projection TV. The TV will only be for gaming and DVDs. Scott says he could get a new 50" TV for $500 or $600, which is more expensive than replacing the bulb, but then he would have a more modern TV. Scott's recommendation would be to spend a little extra and get a new TV. But for gaming, it might be worth replacing the bulb, because DLP has very fast response times.
