It is both expensive and foolish to be the first one to buy this year's new flat panel displays.
It reveals a comprehensive price analysis, as the Resin has made to Ekstra Bladet.
By keeping an eye on the prices of the most popular models, you can see a clear pattern. After just a few weeks fall many brand new tv significantly in price.
The biggest price drop is Samsung for with an average of 41 percent, after the launch has happened.
- In some cases, we see that there are only a few days. And it comes actually a little behind me, that it goes so fast on the new models, " says Martin Andersen, who is the director of prisportalen Resin.
- It just shows that the competition is very fierce in the market for flat-panel displays, which provides some big benefits to consumers.
- It is the game that the prices will fall 10, 20 or an even higher percent after such a short time. What is the explanation of it?
- When there is a good competition, and many providers in a market, then it is of benefit for our customers. Especially the sale of tv is almost a wild west that makes it to the consumer market, says the assessment from the Martin Andersen, pointing out that the prices in some cases artificially can be set extra high, when the tv first comes on the market
- It might as well get a suspect. It seems in any case quite unrealistic, that a tv may fall from 25,000 to perhaps 10,000 crowns.
- Therefore, it can also be speculated to put the price high because it lands at a level that more people can accept.
And it is not alone the first weeks after the first salgsdag prices to get a gok down. The subsequent weeks and months, prices fall several times.
Particularly in the fall around Black Friday and during the sale it subsequent spring, there are new big discounts to download.
- But the way to low prices on is also a pretty transparent trick, think Martin Andersen.
- Therefore, my advice to consumers, of course, to the always waiting at least a few weeks and see what happens, when there comes a new product on the fladskærmsmarkedet.
- You should not in the least danger out and buy in the same moment, to the television hit the store.
