With price drops like that there's no reason not to have an LCD TV by the end of the coming year. $399 for a 32"?? I wonder if that's with or without ATSC tuner??

I wonder what resolution they are referring to. 1080p is still very expensive comparatively. Also, this should mean that rear-projection sets should be dropping a lot also.

$999 is like Black Friday price. i got my LCD HDTV about that price over a year ago during Black Friday. now im looking forward to upgrading to a 1080p.

then i coulda saved 500 or so by waiting to get my tv. i just purchased a 42'' 1080p for a lil over 1500. that still isnt a bad deal though!

Why LCD anyway, plasma is definately my favourite anyway; but that's my opinion. If i lived in the USA i'd buy like 8 32 inchers and make a wall from them. At that price you can't go wrong. Also i wish the UK wasn't so bloody expensive; for the same thing i would have to pay almost twice as much!

Plasma has bad burn in and games make it worse.

Yo Wassap4412d ago

yeah maybe 5 years ago, my 3 plasmas have never had burn in. It's incredibly rare.

plus if you ever manage to break the screen at some point in the future, it costs more to fix than to buy a new one. Some of the earlier plasma screens aren't even available to buy at any price, anymore, which is why you see so many cracked or shattered plasma TV's on ebay. The seller tells you it's fixable, but doesn't tell you the screen may cost from $3000-$10,000 depending on the size and model.
