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."

They were once viewed as the low cost, cheap-quality AMD-type hardware, now they have altered their manufacturing techniques and are making near-quality items. I'm not saying they are a Sony or a Toshiba, but with more practice in manufacturing and a quality QA department, they have a very good chance at gaining a good brandname ... as far a LCD are concerned.

, 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.
