Seems the mid to top tier manufacturers will have to continue with price reductions to stay competitive with the bottom tier products, but that will probably coincide with commiserate reductions in quality and / or service and warranty.

Perhaps so, but I find Pelco's support has always been solid in my area. I have noticed more lower-end models from the top manufacturers however.

You get what you pay for I guess.
