Saving You Money: Top Electronic Deals

If you've been waiting to buy a flat screen television or an E-book because the price seems too high, you are now in luck.

Experts say prices are dropping on must have electronics and this is the year to buy.

Money saving website, dealnews.com, has compiled a list of the top electronics that will cost you less this year.

The first big deal, the 55 inch flat screen television.

"The bigger ones have dropped because they sell more," Adam Jensen with Best Buy said.

Best Buy experts say they've seen these televisions drop $700 in the last two years.

Dealnews.com says in 2009 you'd pay $1,115. Its 2011 prediction, $599.

"Definitely right now is a good time to buy, and in the future televisions will probably continue to drop," Jensen said. "New ones come out in March and I expect them to be significantly cheaper than last year's models."

You'll need something to play movies on your new flat screen TV and experts say Blu-ray is the best. Blu-ray players are also very reasonable.

"When I started with the company four years ago Blu-ray players were $1,000 now they are about $120, and they offer a lot more features than they did two years ago," Jensen said.

But if you search hard enough, you may be able to find a better deal.

Dealnews.com says the cheapest Blu-ray in 2009 was $76. This year it will drop to $39.

If you would rather read a book than watch a movie, the Kindle may be right for you.

The E-Book Reader cost $259 in 2009. This year you may be able to find it for $99.

Experts say you'll pay slightly more for newer models.
