LCD life is way out there in hours if one proviso is met at the design
level. NONE of the elements should see a DC bias of any sort, failure to
meet that requirement insures destruction by deplating the elements and
contaminating the LC fluid. High temperatures can be destructive as well.

My experience I have a 18 year old 5x7x16 pannel that still works great.
