Taiwan's TPV technology leads the pack as the top supplier

When it comes to LCD monitor sales, Dell is still the top vendor in the industry. The company sold 20 million LCD monitors in 2005 representing a 19% share of the market -- nearly double its closest competitor, Samsung.

As far as suppliers are concerned, Taiwan's TPV Technology held on to the top spot garnering 16.2% of the market with over 17 million units shipped.

Even Mac Owners Like 'Em

Dell might be a bit of a swear word in the Apple community (and I certainly swear at mine at work) but their monitors are still recognised as being very high quality at competitive prices. A 24" widescreen model would be very welcome with any computer of mine...

Considering they're the same display with different casings (and a few extra features on the Dell displays) 'Steve' should be the swear word :)

Apple doesn't have a 24" display, and Dell doesn't have a 23" display. Apple uses LG.Philips LCD for that model while Dell uses Samsung. Apple uses the cheapest DSP possible with digital only processing, while Dell uses Genesis DSPs capable of processing analog and digital signals over more than a dozen different interface types.

Claiming the ACD 23" is identical to the Dell 24" LCD is a little like telling me a silver Honda Civic is identical to the BMW 740il. The only reason the Dell even gets any flack is because most people test it with analog inputs (where as you can't do that with the ACD)

Not really surprising...

Considering that they basically bundle a monitor with every system and they're the biggest PC OEM I'd hardly call this a surprising development.

hopefully other LCD companies can take a learn from Dell and lower their prices to compete. I have a dell 2001fp and I love it, especially for the price i got it at.

LCD-Glass-Maker Marketshare?

What about the the LCD-Glass-Maker market? How is Corning performing:

Last I checked they were the leading supplier of LCD glass in the world with more than 50% of the market and were better than their Japanese competition. I am more interested in how they are performing than I am interested in how the Oriental companies they sell their stuff to are performing.

By the way, if anyone did not know, they are a US company. :)

Not looking too bad. Unfortunately the stock completely bottomed out a while ago and everything is just recovery at this point.

By the way though, Corning makes most of its money in fibre optics. LCD substrates have never been a huge cash cow for the company.
