  1. If you're shopping for a new LCD monitor or television, you should probably take the plunge sooner rather than later. According to a new report by iSuppli, global pricing is on the rise for LCD panels 10-inches and larger diagonally. The research firm's numbers indicate that prices increased by nearly 1% on average in November.

    The increase in price is negligible. I wouldn't worry about it.

    True, but the UK's VAT rise in January, from its current 17.5% to 20.0% is going to increase the cost, so worth buying now if you want to beat the price hikes. :D

    Good; this decline in pricing was worrying. It's got to be a negligible increase unless it's driven by the raw material costs. And have not seen anything that says that's true.

    That's fine; anyone notice the DDR3 prices falling like a rock?
    It's a supply and demand thing, I think.

    I'm not worried about LCD monitor prices. Prices for 22-24 inch monitors are very reasonable here and show no signs of increasing at all. The only downside to acquiring a new LCD monitor running at a native 1920x1080 resolution is that you need a more powerful graphics card to play all your games at that resolution.
