Hefty Discounts Could Arrive on Big-Screen TVs, but Buyers May Be Resistant

LOS ANGELES — As the American economy prospered, no other consumer electronics product was more desired than the big-screen digital TV. As the economy sputters and consumers hold back on spending, those TVs are still desired, just not as frequently purchased.

It says prices may go as low as $400 for a 32 inch LCD display in that article. I saw one in Walmart, a Sanyo, for that price just yesterday but it was probably a floor display model. Checking their online prices, the lowest is at $477.

I believe the prices will have to start dropping very soon if they are to have any sales on big items this holiday season.
