Then will be the end of its success, with much know and bigger brands with the same price range they wont be a competition. They just were a big success cause of the really low prices for 720p 42", but these new prices they offer a somehow same or higher than big brands.

The reason for the higher prices are due to the 120Hz Refresh rate. If they were the 60Hz then the prices would be lower.
