Acer sees a 129% increase from Q4'04 to Q4'05

Acer America released a statement today touting its performance in the North American standalone LCD display market. According to market numbers courtesy of DisplaySearch, the company showed a 28% increase in shipments from Q3 to Q4 2005 and a 129% increase when comparing Q4 2005 to Q4 2004. The company far outpaced the industry's average growth rate of 11% and 42% respectively.

Acer's overall ranking in the North American LCD market is third -- this is a vast improvement from their eighteenth place ranking in 2004. Its share of North American standalone LCD shipments rang in at 6%. It was followed by Samsung, Viewsonic and NEC with 4.6%, 3.9%, and 3.1% respectively.

"Acer has seen explosive growth in its shipments into North America during the past two years," said Chris Connery, vice president of market research at DisplaySearch. "With its worldwide strategy, aggressive pricing and channel approach and strong brand recognition, it seems well positioned to continue its strong growth in North America."

Good quality, low price LCD

I think that's why Acer has skyrocketed like Hyundai has in the auto business. They make a cheap, quality product. I just replaced a couple monitors at work with a 17" model (AL1716BBD). Each was under $200. They're nothing fancy; just a solid, reliable, display.

Just ordered (another) 4 more for my office and 5 for another "side-job" I do.
Great quality monitors, at an unbeatable price.

And is it a side job or not? Why would it be so called a side job? Is it not a job that you have on the side of an actual job?

You're acting like a side of ass right now.

I decided to buy an Acer over a year ago for my move to college and I have never regretted it. I needed an LCD with all the inputs, and I found a nice 17" with SVGA so I could hook up my PS2 and play in my room. The best monitor I have ever had and I can't wait to one day upgrade for a nicer widescreen model and I will likely stick with Acer because they have taken care of me so far.

i thought acer/benq LCDs only have 18-bit colour? that is why i went with a viewsonic (VA 902) instead, it was on sale for the same price as two models from acer.

There are 8-bit Acer/BenQ displays, the Acer 2416W is an 8-bit PVA display.

, cheap-quality AMD-type hardware

what does that mean? AMD has been doing nothing but making quality parts for awhile.

lol I hope he is not implying that Intel would be the quality brand and AMD the low-quality brand. Because I am quite sure it's the other way around. At least right now.

Their laptops aren't bad either...

Infact Acer all around has improved tremendously. I guess it goes to show if you don't waste time making crappy chipsets (ALi) and concentrate on R&D for equipment in Retail and OEM channels you can make a recognizable name recognized.

Acer's great!

I have 3 Acer monitors myself and no problems. I would refrain from using "cheap" because I think people are "cheap" and products are "inexpensive." Just my personal off-topic opinion. =P

I own one too..

I have a Acer LCD and laptop. Both have been outstanding performers and I am very happy.
I am eyeing the acer 24" widescreen panel right now. It's probably my next big purchase.
