Report puts Sony LCD TVs as top brand with Samsung a close second

DisplaySearch released a report this week that shows for the first time ever LCD TV shipments outpacing CRT TVs worldwide in Q4 2007. According to the report, global TV shipments grew 21% quarter to quarter and 5% year to year. The total number of TVs shipped was nearly 200 million units worldwide.

2007 was the first year where TV revenues exceeded $100 billion with Q4 2007 revenues alone counting for $32.9 billion of that number. DisplaySearch says that LCD unit share grew worldwide, but the strongest growth in LCD unit share was seen in Europe. Developing nations showed the greatest increase in LCD unit share with Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa rising a combined 106% year over year.

CRT TV shipments fell from 77% of global TV shipments in Q1 2006 to 46% of global shipments in Q4 2007. LCD made impressive gains against rear projection TVs and Plasma TVs as well.

LCD TV share increased from 44% to 65% year over year while plasma dropped from 40% to 31% and rear projection TV dropped from 16% to 3%. That massive drop in rear projection was no doubt helped by Sony pulling out of the rear projection market in 2007.

DisplaySearch says that Sony was the number one brand of LCD TV in Q4 2007 with 19.5% of the market. Samsung followed in a very close second place with 19.3% of the LCD TV market. Philips was a distant third with 10.1% of the LCD market with Sharp sitting at the same 10.1% share. The fifth place company was LG with 7.7% of the market.

I had made this audio/video cabinet out of aluminum extrusions, and tropical hardwoods (VERY strong). It's 66.5 inches wide. I was going to get the Samsung 7289S (72") instead, which is almost exactly 66.5 inches wide itself, but Crutchfields doesn't carry that model, and it weighs a lot more.

This one is great, but the bigger size would have been a bit better at the 14 foot viewing distance we need.

I got the Samsung branded stand -- it's expandable for most of the 50 through 72" models. Cab would have been better, but I move around a lot so I didn't want to settle with something that would only work in my current residence.

Would love to see the carpentry. If you get a chance I'd love to see a picture of it.
