Vizio Becomes the #1 HDTV Seller in the U.S.
 
 

When you think about HDTV sets a few manufacturers probably spring to mind as top sellers here in America, names like Samsung and Sharp. Anyone who has been through the electronics department at Wal-Mart has probably seen Vizio HDTVs sitting there.

What came as a big surprise to me is that Vizio is now the biggest seller of HDTV sets in America. And they took that spot in ONE quarter. In Q1 2007 Samsung led the market in the U.S. with 13.2% market share.

In the same quarter Vizio had a 9.1% market share in America. Now in Q2 2007 Samsung has a 10.7% market share with Vizio rocketing to a 12.1% market share. That represents a 433% growth in one single quarter. Pretty impressive, but personally I want to know if their products work decently. We shall see, I have requested a review unit and we will put the HDTV through its paces.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
