Electronics conglomerate Philips has announced it is to stop manufacturing televisions for North American sale as of September as the flat-panel TV market continues to struggle.
Sucks to hear, I know some people that have Philips TV's and love it. Does import work with TV's ?
You wouldn't wanna import though, the cost would be out of this world..
it was doing so bad.
Philips tvs are great. My parents have one on their house and when I travel there the PS3 works great.
And they are about to launch the Aurea tv! I want one of those.
They make good TVs but they're always more expensive than the competition.
More expensive than Sony's TV's ? I think they made "OK" TV's with a hefty tag and thats what hurt them.
Here's a novel idea, lower the freaking prices. Did they honestly think the Wal-mart crowd (who, like it or not, are the ones who buy the most tv's) could afford to pay upwards of $1500 for a television? It's not like they can't afford to either since most lcd makers have been keeping the prices artificially high since the technology came out. http://www.engadget.com/200...
That is an interesting link you posted. It is true that their higher prices are what is most likely killing them. Don't samsung and sony produce their panels at the same factory? That would lead to similar prices for similar specs then would it not because of equal production costs?
LG and Philips share production for LCD panels, They seem to do well here in the UK, I didn't know they were that expensive over there, shame.
I have a 32" Philips LCD television and I love it.
I have it properly calibrated and it looks awesome.
No regrets. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
