Default Dramatic price drops for 42 inch LCD HDTVs to be expected at the end of this year

Although LCD HDTVs already saw some dramatic price drops last year, sources have indicated the makers will still follow a low-pricing strategy this year with 2nd-tier LCD TV vendors planning to offer 42 inch models at US$699 (about 950 Euros with typical European conversions added) by the end of the year.

Dramatic price drops for 42 inch LCD HDTVs to be expected at the end of this year

An average 2nd-tier HD LCD-TV costs about US$1000 these days (about 950 Euros with typical European conversions added) Prices for 32-inch models from 2nd-tier vendors are also expected to dip to US$299-399 to meet year-end holiday demand, the sources added.

Sadly it only states 2nd-tier brands...

Once the big factory's have geared up, there is no stopping them. Panel production doesn't seem to take a lot of labour and the assembly line rolls 24/7. New technology will keep prices plumped up for most brand name makers, while second tier will wage the consumer price war.

My nephew picked up a 32" ViewSonic on discount for $499 CDN, which in my mind establishes a new low, and at least a 50% cut from last year this time.
