[QUOTE=tmc8080;2588190]Walmart is capitalizing on that by selling basic 720p 50" tv for around $350. (in-store).
I don’t see a need for a tv to be more than 46". More consumers are staying home, and not traveling due to high gas prices. However, the premise that consumers are buying MORE TV’s this year than last year is wrong. Demand for HDTV’s has peaked for basic feature sets. The manufacturers will have to throw in more bells & whistles at the lower prices to keep consumers coming back for replacements. IPTV’s are going to be the hot new products for a tech savvy generation. Or else they’ll buy the cheaper set at a lower price & add it on. So much for those price spikes that Japan thinks they can force upon the export market.[/QUOTE]
Why limit it to 46"?
Sometimes the size of the TV is 100% dependent on the size of the room its going to be in. A large room with a small TV looks just as goofy as a decent sized room with a huge TV. I’ve been in both situations and say don’t limit the size arbitrarily. Go with what works for your room.
