Dell to Exit LCD TV Market

By Dave

It looks like a rumor is going around that Dell is bowing out of the LCD TV industry. With the LCD TV industry booming, some might be confused at this move, but I think that the industry is quickly becoming a smaller profit/markup arena, and other players are just doing a better job, despite Dell’s screens being rather good.

Some details from Engadget:

Unlike Apple’s ridiculous desktop display markup, Dell has concentrated on providing low-cost computer and home theater offerings, something particularly dangerous in the cutthroat LCD TV market, so it’s not a total surprise to see ’em bail now. Dell is purportedly set to stop manufacture this month, so we should know soon enough how legitimate these reports are, a Dell spokeswoman wouldn’t comment on the rumors, only stating that Dell currently sells LCD TVs in a limited number of markets.

Some people are worried about how this will effect warranties and returns, but as Dell works at listening to its customers more, I am sure that they will continue to provide the service that they always have.
