The continuing price reductions

One advantage of having to manually load all the old Blog entries into the new platform is that I rediscover some of them. For example, back in August 2005 I wrote about the reduction in price of a 40 inch NEC LCD TV from $9,999 to $5,499. That’s a 1,280 by 768 pixel model with a claimed constrast ratio of just 600:1 (yes, six hundred to one!)

Now, of course, you can buy a 40 inch LCD TV, full HD (1,920 by 1,080 pixels) with an active backlight delivering subjectively satisfying black levels for less than $1,600.
