EE Times Article LCD monitors outsold CRTs in Q3
While LCD panel prices started falling mid-year, they were not reflected in monitor prices until late in the third quarter due to high channel inventories, said DisplaySearch. Thus, LCD monitor shipments fell short of expectations despite overtaking CRTs.
I am not sure I understand the economics of this statement. There should be an oversupply of monitors (LCD) but the prices did not show up in retail until the 'high channel inventories' were depleted?
Should we expect to see even cheaper prices after the turn of the year? I am in the market for a larger monitor. I am looking at the Samsung 910T in the $480-$490 range. there are lots of monitors in the sub $400 range but the specs are lacking.
