Crashing Stock Markets Equals Super HDTV Buying Opportunities Ahead
Believe it, a slumping Dow Jones Industrial Average may create a perfect buying opportunity to buy a brand new HDTV. Why? Mainly because retailers and manufacturers alike are scared that you're penny pinching will hurt them bad; leaving them no other viable option than to cut prices. Paul Gagnon of research firm DisplaySearch is predicting HDTV prices to move somewhere around these numbers in the weeks preceding Black Friday:
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
The question is whether it'll be the big names like Sony, Panasonic and Samsung that will lower their prices to these insane deals. Second-tier names are already pricing their sets at the above prices at Amazon and deal sites like SlickDeals or TechDealDigger, but real quality at those prices would be amazing.
