GE’s fancy Alexa lamp has been plummeting in price all week

The C by GE Sol Alexa enabled lamp was an interesting spin on the 3rd-party Alexa device market when it was released last year. While most manufacturers were busy putting Alexa into every speaker they made, GE put the voice assistant in a sleek lamp that could give you visual cues, such as flashing when an Alexa timer ended. While the device was intriguing, the $199.99 price was difficult to swallow and probably contributed to its lackluster reviews. GE quickly reduced the retail price to $149.99, but during the last week, its price has been steadily dropping by a few dollars a day. Where it’ll stop is anyone’s guess, but it is currently at $83.20 on Amazon, which is the lowest it has ever been.

Update

The fall continues as it’s now at $79.16.

      Now at $79.16. Pretty sure it’s an algorithm determining the price. It’ll continue to drop until enough people start to buy it, then the price will shoot back up. Just watch.

    This lamp is worth no more than $20.

      I agree with that, at about <$20 I might bite to play around with it. On the other hand lack of being able to stream music, maybe not….

    This is basic supply, demand, and market equilibrium in a microeconomic environment. We all learned this lesson in grade school.
