Sharp talks out about LCD sales Sharp product manager Tommaso Monetto spoke out about the company's sales of LCD TVs and whether sales were being effected by an "economic slowdown."
When asked about the slowdown, he had this to say, "Well, clearly everybody's starting to worry about the economy, about a slow-down, according to the newspapers on a daily basis.

"To a certain degree, the price erosion within the LCD business is so high that last year the average end users could probably only afford to buy at best a 32 inch LCD TV. Today we're looking at roughly the same price for a 42 inch.

"Maybe further down the line we will have to look at how the economy goes, but for the moment, when we look at the data that comes through on a monthly basis, certainly we're not seeing anywhere a decrease in sales - in fact the opposite.

"When you look at week-by-week sales, it's actually growing, very clearly."


So it seems that LCD sales and the gaming industry are fine for the time being.

Families might have to sell their Expedition to buy that 60 plus flat panel but for now they can afford the bedroom 42. They will run into another wall after people start complaining about the poor quality picture with dark screens and the pixilation with sports that can cause motion sickness. Its time for the next generation of TVs that perform much better, LCDs bigger then 37 can be a real problem unless you buy a Sony or Pioneer Elite but then you might as well bend over and take it like a man.
