Price Rise For Lcd/plasmas

Recommended Posts

don't much care about the dollar one way or the other :o

it's really the bottom line on the best deal i can get when i'm ready ^_^

it really is a buzz, that's when the duck gets higher than a kite :D

but for now, the search has only just begun and i'll be hanging around here for a while ^_^

what i'm really after, and unlikely to get is a 32 inch HD plasma :rolleyes:

i really don't want an LCD in that room :rolleyes:

don't want to risk any blur facture what so ever :o

no way i'm giving the Mr another thing to whinge about <_<

it has to be 32 inch, measurements restricted and do not want to go to 26 inch if i can help it :ninja:

Your not likely to get motion blur on a 32" anyway due to its small size. I have a 32" and have never seen any sign of motion blur and my screen is over 3 years old so its specs arent that great. Motion blur is more prevelant on larger screens due to bitrate starved broadcasts.

and yes, i know looks have nothing to do with specs :rolleyes:

but i'm a girl :rolleyes::lol::lol::lol:

Prices will probably fall overseas, but the drop in the AU dollar will have to be absorbed before we see any price reductions here.

LOL, The guy knows what he is talking about :lol::D

I don't know much about tvs but I do know if you had followed Craig James advice on the economy over the last 2 years you would be in a big hole.......an even bigger hole than the average ecomonists advice would have got you.

Series 9 55" went from 5,500 in last JB catalogue to almost 6,000 in store. So about 10% rise.

Panasonic TVs: 10-15%

Panasonic projectors: 15%

Other Panasonic items going up too, up to 30% for microwaves is the biggest I've heard.

These take effect for all shipments from 1 Feb. Apparently all plasmas 800s and 850s delayed to mid-Feb, so unless someone has stock (?!? I thought they've been sold out since early December), good luck. I might note that there are quite a few PZ80s around the place though.

I've also heard Sony 5% in Feb and 5% in Apr, but this wasn't coming direct from Sony. The Panasonic stuff was coming from Pana though.

I have a 32" HD Plasma 9I thought ut was 37" but measured it the other week and it was only 32 !).

I bought it about 4 years (the Hitachi and Philips were identical using ALIS technology) and it still has PQ equal to the 50" 1080P plasma's I see in the stores.

I think because it is small, the PQ is a lot better.

Don't think you can get thesae plasma's any more though.

I went to order some 'w' series tvs from sony 3 days ago and they said next batch due mid feb and also has a 7% price rise attatched.

Panasonic still has stock of 'pz80' series so the price rise on those wont be noticed for a while but the 'pz800' will probably be in short supply and more expensive in feburary as they keep stocks down for the new models in April.

Samsung has new models in a couple of months and we will probably see clearance line by line , series 5 in Feb , series 6 in march etc...

Panasonic has held off on the price rises probably until new models on brown goods anyway. I think microwaves still went up.

As of today Sony is still going ahead.

So where is this 30%+ price rise that was threatened by SMH before Xmas and assured by all the dealers on this forum? So far at worst we are looking at 5 - 10% change to RRP (not street prices) that will most likely get wiped out when the new models flow through.

I think it is clear that the 30% price hike was never going to happen. Looks like the SMH's crystal ball is working about as well as the one I use to pick my lotto numbers. :rolleyes:

The price rise is "Up to 30%", just like the sales where they give "Up to 70% discount". :lol:

Yes the up to 30% increase was geared towards their whole range of products. Some went up by 30%, some went up by 10%. Seems the higher the price of the item, the less it went up. But as i stated before in another thread. Prices rises post christmas is quite normal. Same thing happended last year without vendors making a song and dance about it.

One would have to wonder if SMH were reporting the well researched facts journalistically or indulging in some infomercialism/scare propaganda sponsored by their advertising customers to drum up some additional pre-Christmas revenue! Oh I love a good conspiracy!

This doesn't make sense to me. If a cheaper item goes up by 30% and a costlier item goes up by 10% (or less), it reduces the price difference between them. In such a situation -

Lower-end enters mid-range territory

Mid-range enters high-end territory

This kind of approach will hamper the sales of low-end products (bread-and-butter for the big firms) and reduce the "exclusivity" that people buying high-end items seek. It's a lose-lose situation.

In any case, I haven't seen a 30% price rise on cheap TVs and miniscule rises on high-end TVs. Or am I supposed to wait until February before I can debunk the soothsaying of the SMH ?

There is more profit on the more expensive item so one suspects more room to be flexible and still make money.

So it makes sense to me.

Sorry you have misunderstood my post. The higher price rises were geared towrds things such as microwaves and the like. Screens were hit with a lower price hike. I suspect to reduce the effects of an already flat tv selling market. Sticking 30% on a $250 microwave doesnt effect peoples buying habits as much as sticking 30% on a $3000 screen.

I guess you're right. It does sound a bit funny, though.

"To reduce the effects of an already flat flat-TV market !"
