"He who hesitates is lost." I had been waiting for the new Sony hdtv's with DVI to come out, but after learning that they don't have HDCP I decided to go to Best Buy in Rockville, Maryland and pick up the 48" JVC. This is what the salesman told me, "JVC has discontinued that set because THEY COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH DEMAND." Well after I picked my jaw up from the floor I told him he's gotta be kidding but he said he was serious. Corporate had told them that JVC was only fulfilling orders to those who had purchased the set and they were not making any more PERIOD. The model is discontinued!!!! -gulp- Say it aint so!! Now something certainly smells fishy here. I may be a green horn when it comes to 'lectronical quipment but it seems to me that i learned in econ 100 that when demand for an item is extremely high manufacturers tend to regulate demand by raising something called PRICE before they actually stop manufacturing it. In fact this is one of the things that makes capitalism work if I'm not mistaken. WHY ON EARTH WOULD JVC STOP MANUFACTURING NEW SETS WHEN DEMAND FOR THEM IS OVERWHELMING??!! I mean only in fairy tales do you voluntarily kill a goose that lays golden eggs. Was Best Buy giving me a load of hogship or is JVC hiding something about the set itself something that they can't fix? Has anybody heard this from any other etailer or B&M store? Has anyone heard of another product sumarily taken off the market because it filled consumer demand so well? Something aint right about this! DAGNABIT!!! BUYING THIS NEW RPTV HAS TURNED INTO THE BIGGEST FERSHMUGGING HEADACHE IN MY LIFE!!! AAAAARRRRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
