Daewoo Electronics is joining a drive to slash the price of plasma display
panel (PDP) televisions.
The company announced Sunday it will release three 42-inch high-definition
PDP TVs. All three models have a built-in set-top box, with prices starting
from W3.7 million (US$3,650) for the DPA-4290NDSB model. The company
aims to lead the popularization of PDP TVs by making quality products at a
reasonable price, said Choi Jae-beom, an executive director of Daewoo
LG Electronics slashed the minimum price of its 42-inch PDP TV to W3.9
million last month, through a special sales promotion event. Samsung
Electronics is offering a package product of a 42-inch PDP TV and a 17-inch
liquid crystal display (LCD) TV for W4.1 million.
