Following the current trends about LCD panels is quite interesting. Currently, on professional trade publications like DigiTimes, we keep hearing one simple message:
The price of the LCD panels is falling down in 2007, except for small sizes.
Essentially, it translates into: the LCD TV sets and screen displays are going to see plumeting prices in 2007. The relative slow down of sales and increased production capacity leads to a price war that should be favorable to the buyer (you and me). However, on the smaller end of the market, things are slightly different. Laptops are fonder and fonder of relatively small size screens (14″, 15″ to 17″) but they strive for better resolution and this is still in limited availability. The laptop prices will not go down parallely.
