Visualizing product prices: is it a good time to buy?
Ever want to get a better sense of whether now is a good time to buy that device you had your eye on? Well, in addition to sending you alerts to the best possible prices, gdgt now surfaces and visualizes product pricing trends on thousands of products!
As an example, check out one of our Must-have HDTVs: the Samsung UN55D8000 (gdgt.com/samsung/un55d8000/). From this graph we can quickly determine that after a big price hike a few weeks ago, it's since stabilized and is now at its lowest price in months. In fact, we can easily see that the UN55D8000 is actually down hundreds of dollars from its all time high. Now would be a great time to buy.
One of our core philosophies with gdgt is that data, curation, and design aren't enough on their own to help you figure out what products to purchase (and when to get them). But when we can take these three things and bring them together harmoniously, pretty amazing things can happen to your gadget buying experience.
We love this stuff, and nothing gets us more excited than figuring out how to make these kinds of experiences useful, usable, and beautiful. Let us know what you think!
