2012 Uniform Pricing Strategies: success or failure?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As most know, samsung and sony implemented a minimum or uniform pricing strategy for mid and upper level sets.

Any one know how this has impacted sales? Amazon tracks top-selling tvs, which shows LG seems to have benefited from Samsung and Sony's tack.

Those policies prevented me from buying their products and I will not buy at artificially inflated prices. I will buy the most competitive, best performing Tv . Hell, I am even considering plasma price advantages. Speed is life , so is price.

We just got the Samsung PN60E550 2 weeks ago at Amazon. We paid $1297 for it (the same price as most places, although some places are asking $1499). Going by the prices 2 and a half years ago when I bought our Samsung PN58B650 this TV should have cost about $2800? We were pleasantly surprised when we went looking.

The 51 inchers are $998 at Walmart. Not bad I think?

well, it backfired as far i'm concerned as a potential future sony customer.

i was ready to spring for a 55" 929 (best picture i'd ever seen..), but then the price jumped over $1000 and i balked.

in my view, SONY quality stinks and thus they shouldn't be claiming this "prestige" pricing. every single sony item i have has failed relatively early in its life.

the latest problems with with my PS3 are the last straw*: i vow i'll never buy another sony product as long as this policy is in effect. in my view, they don't deserve my business, especially at inflated prices.

*my replacement panasonic 220 is better all around except for when the motor sometimes makes some weird noises when it's paused.
