Crashing Economy Means HDTV Buying Opportunities Ahead

Crashing Economy Means HDTV Buying Opportunities Ahead

While the stock markets continue downwards in a very depressing manner, you may enjoy hearing this teensy bit of good news. If you're in the market for a flat panel TV, there's no better time to buy one than the next coming months. Especially with Black Friday just around the corner, prices are expected to tumble - even sooner to help rake in the sales. Here's Paul Gagnon, DisplaySearch's director of North American TV market research, to give us a few optomistic numbers for the holiday season...

Here are the numbers. Cue the drumroll, please.

19-inch high-definition LCD: $199 32-inch HD LCD: $399-$499 40-inch 1080p LCD: $799-$999 42-inch HD plasma: $599-$699 50-inch HD plasma: $899-$999

Not bad, we say. $399 is an extremely convincing sweet spot for a 32" LCD HDTV, even if it is an off-brand.
