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.
