How much do hdtv prices drop over a years time?


Hello, I'm planning on saving up for a Samsung LED HDTV. I'd like it to be 55 inches or more, I don't really care to have smart technology, and I'd love for it to be one of the ultra slim ones. It seems for 55 inches I'll be paying about 1100 dollars, for 60 inches its 1300 dollars, and any more than that, they automatically add the smart technology so its 2,500 or above. But I was just wondering how much a tv's price may drop in about a year from now. I've seen that 55 inch LED's used to be 2200 dollars but now they are 800-1200. How much do these prices usually drop in about a year with the new technology?

This is the tv I plan on buying:

It's a tough thing to figure.

A particular model that you like may have a limited shelf-life. Manufacturers tend to make new models in order to keep prices up. Though the price of model 55-123LED (making this model number up) may be $1500 right now...conventional wisdom means that this model should be cheaper next year. The problem is that the manufacturer stops making this model and replaces it with the 55-321LED. Though it is completely identical to the old is a 2013 model and therefore will still be worth the $1500 as a 'current' model.

The best time to purchase last years model is just before/just after the new ones hit the shelves. Stores will cut prices to make room for the new ones. If you wait to long will find last years models hard to find.

A couple of tips for you:
A Good sale can happen anytime. It doesn't have to be Black Friday, Columbus Day, etc. Keep an eye on weekly ads from the major retailers in your well as the online shops. With Price-Matching (which most major retailers offer)...anyone's sale could be a sale for your local store.

Don;t be afraid to ask for a discount. You have to believe that EVERYTHING is negotiable. You don;t have to be rude about it...just a simple "Is there any other way to save money on this TV?" I got 5% off my TV at Fry's Electronics simply by calling the manager over and asking if they're was any way he could save a few bucks (told him I was just a bit short on covering the full cost + taxes). Salesman/managers may know of coupons, etc that can save a few bucks.

How to stop my parents from spoiling me? Also am I a spoiled brat?


I am 13 and I feel like I am being spoiled. My parents get me alot of things without me asking.

Here are the things my parents buy exclusively for me:
-New iPhone 5C
-My first phone was iPhone 3G when I was 8(I feel so spoiled here)

Here are the things that I share with my family or that my family shares with me-
-2013 retina display 13" MacBook Pro
-2006 iMac
-Original Nintendo Wii
-Apple TV
-Sony HDTV (with a screen 1 meter high, and l.5 to 2.0 meters wide) from 2008
-Windows 7 laptop (for my moms work, and I use it for creating video games because of better support)

I also barely have an allowance. I am asking this since my uncle called me a spoiled brat. I think I am spoiled but I dont think I am a brat. I also am only allowed to play the ps4 on weekends. I didnt ask for any of these except for ps4 since I won my regional spelling bee last year. I also didnt want an iPhone 5C, I was fine with my 3G. I am thinking of trading the 5C in for the nexus 5. Also my friends are much more spoiled than me so if I consider with them they would say im not spoiled. If I am too spoiled how to talk to my parents. This is also not an attention seeker. Thanks.
I am not asking for anything. I just want to stop being spoiled.

Three 24 inch
One 40 Inch
