NEW YORK, July 19 (Reuters) - Average U.S. prices for
plasma televisions fell 3 percent in May, edging closer to key
levels where consumer may consider the giant screens as a
bargain, according to an industry study prepared for Reuters.

Prices of notebook personal computers and portable DVD
players also marked strong declines in the month, leading
prices for consumer electronics lower in a month when retailers
cleared out inventory to stocked shelves with "back-to-school"
products, according to NPD Consumer Electronics Price Watch.

The report, released on Monday, showed prices for a market
basket of the 27 most popular electronics goods fell to $12,362
in May, down 3.1 percent from April, and down more than $1,000
since the start of 2004.

The decline was the sharpest month-to-month drop since
before the 2003 holiday season.
