This might not be immediately visible to the casual consumer, but liquid crystal display sales have been sluggish lately.
In fact, it's not easy at all to realize that monitors and TVs have been going through less than stellar times, not with forecasts about impending Smart TV success, although hearing about there being too many 3D TVs was a big enough hint. Simply put, liquid crystal display sales are and have been low for a while, causing losses to their makers. Now, manufacturers are reducing their orders, even as prices fall little by little. This means that, this Christmas, a new monitor or TV might be just what the doctor ordered, since it won't dry the bank. Random access memory is still the best purchase this winter, though, as we said here.
