Price Plunge: Analysts predicting $199 32″ LCD TVs?

November 10, 2010 by  

It appears the deep price cuts we reported awhile back expected for HDTV LCD units are coming sooner than we thought: this holiday season, to be precise.

Many analysts who study pricing trends and patterns are making many educated (and slightly scary) guesses about where prices will drop to this Black Friday and Christmas season: for example, 32″ LCD HDTVs may drop as low as $199 at some stores, which is an unheard of price point for TVs of that size. A 40-inch LCD HDTV for just $298? Recently leaked Target BF sale literature shows just that being available.

The reason, you may ask? Retailers and TV manufacturers are anxious to clear their inventory, particularly with reports that there is a huge amount of unsold LCD panels on the worldwide market, just sitting there with few buyers. So their loss can definitely be your gain this holiday season.
