No one can know. Your 2 year DMD failure is not normal. I have seen failures of all tech types in abnormally short time spans. It's best to get an extended warranty on mega buck items, unless they come with a lengthy warranty already from the manufacturer.

Epson's 3LCD tech is superior to DLP in some respects, inferior in others. This applies to the other tech types as well. You have to be detailed and clear about what your system requirements, viewing priorities, and budget capacities are. I still prefer a well designed DLP projector to the other options for overall image fidelity and color consistency. There is certainly no shortage of alternate performance priorities among video consumers. Each tech type has its unique characteristics.
