Price of widescreens


Recommended Posts

I just got back from a week trip to Dublin, Ireland. (The draft Guinness was wonderful.) The price on a 28, Mitsubishi wide screen is $475 and for a 32, Philips widescreen is 720 (US$). Now I know that these are not HDTV or even compatible with US standards, but why the big difference in cost. They are 16:9 format. A 32 widescreen in Northern Ca is ~$2000 and if I want HDTV, it is another $1500.

seems a bit high...

here we have a 47" Panasonic HDTV monitor which retails for $3,188... CAN!

that would translate to about $2,000 US!
