Thinking of buying an LCD television set? Wait no longer: The price plunge is over. After years of accelerating decline, prices for consumer LCD TVs -- especially those smaller than 32 inches -- have hit bottom, industry insiders say.
Still very affordable, we shouldn't see anymore CRT's in a few decades.
I cant wait for OLED to become the standard. The good LCDs imo cost too much.
Preach it brotha! I can't wait for OLED to become a reality either. greater than a million to 1 contrast ratio!! Makes me wanna cry just thinking about it!
From a guy that just bought his a month ago.
Rock bottom? you can still get an regular SDTV for about 50% cheaper then an HD LCD or hell even an sd LCD for that matter, When lcd prices get that cheap and the cheapos actually look and work good then ill buy one, Till then the only thing HD im willing to buy is CRT.
4 - Dont know what they are talking about. Rock bottom? you can still get an regular SDTV for about 50% cheaper then an HD LCD or hell even an sd LCD for that matter, When lcd prices get that cheap and the cheapos actually look and work good then ill buy one, Till then the only thing HD im willing to buy is CRT. Haha! Thats because those are outdated. While HDTV prices come down so do the SDTV prices. I can't believe you even brought that argument up. This is how technology works. Always has always will.
CRT has hands down the best contrast. The only thing they are lacking is that they're so BIG. Brightness can be an issue, as well, but they do offer the best picture... do a bit of research. My 5 year old 38" widescreen HD CRT looks better than just about anything out in the stores right now...
and that's the way I'm getting my HD fix right now. I can get 1080i resolution on it so I usally play my PS3 on that, or I bring it to work and hook it up to one of the big ones here. CRT for the money can be a really great deal.
CRT is fine if you have a mammoth sized lounge, but I'd rather have my sleek 42" HD plasma hanging on my wall
right now plasma has the best picture and motion tracking, lcd still has a bit to go as far as dark colours and motion tracking goes. but you cant beat the price/performance of lcd's you can't even buy crt in the uk anymore. they blow bigtime not even a consideration imo
CRT is still the absolute best picture quality available. LCDs and Plasmas dont come close. In fact they're about 4-5 years away from getting to the the level of a CRT. If you guys are in the market for a tv, I suggest the last great CRT. The Sony 34' HD widescreen XBR970 that is starting to dissapear. This is one of the best tvs ever made. The only flaw of this tv is that it weighs a whopping 200lbs. But for me it's about QUALITY! Not Convenience.
Firstknight "quality not convenience" You shouldnt have bought a 360 then
i'm glad these prices are going down... I was at BJ's the other day, and seen real quality LCD's for REAL great prices... I'm not really a huge audio/videophile but the PQ I saw was GREAT in my opinion.. they had 37inch LCD's for 799.99... 42inch LCD's for 899, 42" Plasma's for 999.99... and these were Philips and Sharp & Olevia prices
The price of LCD tv's might go down even further once OLED,and SED(if Canon and Toshiba make nice) come to the market. :D
I'm for a buying a TV on Black friday this coming november ( getting married in November so, I'll be getting some money ;) By that time they will be even cheaper and the sales they will have that day should help also.. I'm not looking for a "cheap" on but maybe I can get more TV for my money that day..
OLED displays, I mean won't they be Expensive too when they come out? I don't wanna wait another 5 years for their prices to come down ya know? r1000 -"I'm for a buying a TV on Black friday this coming november ( getting married in November so, I'll be getting some money ;)" Congrats bro, Hopefully thats not your last big Electronic Purchase..hehe, it's 50/50 after that. I' m eying this 1080P HDTV from Toshiba. http://www.sears.com/sr/jav... http://www.amazon.com/Toshi... http://www.vanns.com/shop/s... You can't beat that price for 57 inches of 1080P. Thin Bezel more screen too..anyhow
most people didn't actually read the article. The prices wont be dropping further without some sort of technological break-thru. The prices have hit bottom and started back up. Some companies have had to sell screens at less than manufacturing cost and are therefor cutting back production. Other companies are ceasing production all together. The price of an LCD TV will be higher in the future, not lower.
