Maybe now the prices will come down to a competetive rate, or at least one that won't clean out the pocketbook!

Earlier this week research firm Displaysearch predicted that revenues from LCD screens would outstrip CRT revenues this year, and that LCD unit volumes would move past CRT volumes in 2004.
