This is a public service announcement :) Tonight I was supposed to see Watts Humphrey speak, but Atlanta traffic put a stop to that! While killing time for rush hour to die down I wandered around a Best Buy and was amazed to see these prices:

42" ED Plasma $799
50" 720p Plasma $1499
43" 1080p LCD ~$1500

Everyone who has been waiting maybe now is the time to pull the trigger? A year ago I blogged that Plasmas would never drop below $800 due to manufacturing cost being probably similar to CRTs - it looks like I may soon be proved wrong! Personally I am waiting for a 50" 1080p LCD to drop below $1000 before retiring the 480p ED Maxent Plasma which still looks great.
