Just in time for your rebate and stimulus checks, industry insiders predict price drops of 20-25% on HDTVs in May. [HD Guru via Gizmodo]
Still not buying one.
My stimulus payment went to pay for my semi-annual car and renters insurance bill.
Hmm.. “industry insiders” predict a price drop?
It doesn’t take an insider to know that. Haha. For that past 2 or 3 years, the price of HDTV sets have declined around summer/fall, in preparation for new models and the Christmas shopping rush.
As much as I love my Sony Trinitron, I think I’m going to get an LCD HDTV this year. The promotional rate on my cable TV service is going to expire this summer and I ain’t gonna keep it.
Free OTA HD/DTV broadcast, here I come!
My refund check still isn’t enough to cover an HDTV
“Industry insiders” are also predicting a rise in prices by end of year – once the weak dollar / commodity prices trickle into the supply chain.
“Sorry to break-in to current programming, Eyewitness News here. We have learned from industry insiders that gas prices will be rising even further due to the economic stimulus checks.”
“More at 11pm.”
I dont even want one, I want an iPhone!
