Some of the popular brands of technology such as Epson, Samsung, and Sharp are having to pull out their money and put them back into the pockets of their customers. These brands names and others were taken to court earlier in the year with the accusation that they illegally increased the actual cost of liquid crystal display (LCD) products such as televisions and computer screens. As a result, the manufacturers received a major backlash from individual buyers and businesses–a class action lawsuit. $1.1 billion was awarded to the plaintiffs and now, consumers are getting the chance to have a piece of the pie.
Consumers of LCD products have the opportunity to accept up to a minimum of $25 if they file a claim in the LCD Price Fixing Class Action Settlement action. The claim form, which can be found on www. LCDClass.com, will ask for basic information as well as any questions on the purchase of LCD panel-screened televisions, monitors, or notebooks.Those who qualify have to had purchased the products between 1999 and 2006 and living in the District of Columbia or the 24 states including Tennessee, Minnesota, and Arizona. The rest of the states can be found on the website provided.
