I have noticed lately...that it looks like Electronic gadgets/ accessories/luxury items are at much lower prices this Christmas compared to years in the past. Hope this trend continues...however...I'm wondering if the quality is still there.
This weekend I saw a DVD player (never heard of the brand) for $19.99...and I see in ads there are other deals to be had.
Well...when compared to prices of utilities/ gasoline that have gone up in my area this time from a year ago...Electronics definitely seem lower. Groceries seem higher...Clothes seem about the same...in price comparison to last year. Lot's of people seem to be scoring on computers/Blue Ray...etc. and getting good deals. Just trying to get a feel for the overall economy...cause it looks like there are plenty of shoppers out this year...same as last year...and I know this a hard hit year for a lot of folks.
The same pricing trend in Australia. Electronics are the lowest prices I have ever seen.
All technology (electronics or not) goes down in price over the years. It's only natural for new technology to start off with a high price, but become cheaper as processes to create it become more efficient.
(This doesn't apply to collectibles. Those go up in price based on nostalgia and history)
In order to sell cheaper you remove the features and you strip out the warranty. Nearly all electronics come from cheap labor in Asia.
You get what you pay for. Manufacturers do not build electronics to last.
So are they really cheap?
