The price collapse has driven several out of the market and more to come. My employer will be one of the next to leave the market (it's already pulling way back). It'll be up to the Koreans and Chinese. Not really a bad thing, overall, it just is.

An old friend and past neighbor that did quite well in the TV repair business in the 70's, 80's, 90's, maybe a little past 2000 told me that 95% of all the TV's regardless of brand, for the last 15-20 years, were pretty much built in China/Asia and or at least a majority of the components. The so to speak American brands simply had an American name.
IMHO once the LCD screens took hold there was no reason for the high prices. Lap top computers in the late 80's told me the direction that computer monitors and eventually TV's would eventually go.

Sure, but the Japanese are/were in the middle of the transfer. They're no longer competitive either. Korea will be next and we'll be left with China. Again, I don't see it as all bad.

There is a rather substantial difference between a computer monitor and a 90" TV display but, yes, the price collapse is on the same order as PCs have already seen (and have just about bottomed out).

New features and innovation is keeping prices up on the latest models. Curved screen seems to be the newest. 3D has been a bit of a lop so far.
After buying my 47". the price dropped $25 a week.

I have had, in the last 15 months, 2- 70" and now a 65" wide screen. Both 70" Sharp TV's failed in less than a year. In August while deciding once again with what to go with we saw that the curved screens were the new thing. Not impressed. As one salesman pointed out the curve is supposed to cut down on glare. what really happens is that all of the glare gets focused in mostly one spot on the screen and much more so. 3D, we have had it on all 3 sets mentioned above. We used it long enough to see if it worked. Again IMHO 3D will not be a thing until there are NO glasses to wear.
And that brings up an interesting point. I was watching a video of Sharps new 8K 3D TV, even on my computer monitor with no special glasses the picture/video on that TV appeared to be 3D. So that feature might not be too far off. I thought something was a bit unusual before it was announced that this TV was 3D with out the need of special glasses.

Yes but that was, the Japanese were in the middle a few decades ago. Regardless those that provide the quality and innovation at an affordable price will take control of the market.

Well now there is but my first 18.1" NEC monitor in 2001 cost me $1,100. And yeah, I think the monitors prices probably have bottomed. 27" monitors going for <$300. Remember when a 27" TV, tube type, was considered huge and much more than $300? LOL

I believe the curved screen will be the same. It doesn't make any sense.

Pretty soon, they'll be paying *you*. ;-)

IIRC I was looking at one also at Best Buy and a 55" but much much less than that. And right now you can get a Samsung 55" curved screen for $1500.

The Nintendo 3DS allows for 3D without special glasses. The problem is, however, the "3Dness" adjusts as the screen moves. The right setting for one distance is wrong for one only a few degrees off.
I have a tendency to move the system slightly during game play, so tend to play in "2D mode" as much as possible.

And another great job goes on the books.
Nicely done as always. I really like your workmanship, but I like your designs just as much.
I always appreciate the time and effort you put into your projects, but also the time and effort you put into showing all of us what you are up to.
Great stuff!
Robert

Thank you Robert! This is one of those pieces that I would like to keep for myself, it's not what we need but it seems to look good for any setting. Basically it is not designed specifically to fit a particular need.

I'm curious about the top detail. How many components make up that profile? My best guess is a layer of 3/4", and a layer of 1/2" sandwiched together, then a piece of 3/4" mounted perpendicular to the sandwich for the very top, and a piece of 1/2" X 1" molding in the corner. Or maybe the topmost piece is molding too, 3/4" square? (or more likely, I'm entirely off base?)
How did you get the idea for that particular shape?
Oh, by the way, a very nice job you've done there. To my untutored eye, the design manages to look both modern and classic.
