Bargains continue to beckon for LCD TVs

THE OVERSUPPLY that made LCD-TFT panel manufacturers sweat in 2004 and which is causing them to already perspire heavily this year is bestowing boons on consumers who decided to wait and see.

That’s according to a report from Taiwanese trade quango the Market Intelligence Center (MIC), which said LCD TV prices fell continually last year.

In a report, MIC said that consumers’ “wait and see” attitude “began haunting” manufacturers of LCD TVs nearly a year ago. Oversupply dented third quarter shipments but there was light at the end of the tunnel when the price drops narrowed the delta between CRT TVs and the newer shiny pixel models.”
