Vizio Widens Lead in U.S. LCD Television Sales
Samsung, the No. 2 seller of LCDs in the U.S., made up 20.2% of the market share, meaning that Vizio outsold Samsung by more than seven percentage points. Vizio scored a two-percentage-point lead over Samsung in the third quarter, up from a one-point lead in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Meanwhile, Sony came in at third place, accounting for 10.1% of the U.S. LCD market in the quarter. That's an increase from the 9.7% market share it held in the third quarter, but down from 13.3% in the year-ago quarter.
