Hey everyone......me again....the author of the HD thread that just got closed. Jack, I am sory to start a new thread but I think that nobody has understood what I am trying to get at.....at no fault of theirs.....my bad explaining. I will try one more time and please allow people to respond. in a few years HD is going to be the norm. Stores will eventually stop selling "normal" tv's....probably sooner than later. When this happens obviously there will be a huge decrease in price. If not than someone will have a lot of question to answer when people find out that in order to watch t.v. they will have to spend over 600$ for a quality T.V......when currently they can get one for 300$. If someone wants a bigger set then of course it will be more money. The way things are now if you go into a store most of what they have are larger t.v.s....for usually well over 1,500$. My question is that do people feel a bit taken advantage of when these companies know that they will be forced to lower prices greatly on t.v.s in the not so distant future I am not saying that why buy now when the same thing will be cheaper in a year...that is common sence. Kind of like they are charging a large amount of money for as long as they can until they have no choice but to lower it. I am certainly not saying that you shouldn't buy one now....heck most people say that I was nuts to spend 1,300$ for 2 speaker LOL! It just seems that the people who are making these t.v.s and setting the price are taking advantage to the consumers for as long as they can. Hopefully this explained my point a bit. Again mods, I am sorry for restarting a thread but I feel it was closed under the wrong assumption. Just trying to get more knowledge . If you feel I am being patronizing that is not what I am trying to do....My 3 year history on the forum speaks for itself.
