Despite the poor economy, many consumers in the US are still buying larger consumer electronic devices like LCD TVs. The big change is that these consumers are often looking for better prices before they buy. That fact is helping Vizio, one of the lower priced TV brands to rack up big sales numbers.
Vizio has again been ranked as the biggest shipper of LCD TVs in America for Q2 2009. The company grew its sales a whopping 165% year over year and 10% compared to the previous quarter. Vizio lead sales in America for screens in the 21.5 to 24-inch, 26-inch, 32-inche, and 37-inch categories.
Three Vizio products were in the top five LCD TVs for sales in the country. Vizio shipped 21.7% of all LCD TVs in America for the quarter. Samsung held second place with 21.3%, Sony was in third with 11.9%, and Toshiba took fourth with 8.3%. LG, Panasonic, and Sharp rounded out the list.
