"The two new VIZIO 42-inch LCD products just hit the shelves at Costco and Sam's Club and we are already seeing record sales that exceed our forecasts." states Jeff Schindler, Vizio Vice President Marketing and Business Operations.
According to DisplaySearch President Ross Young, "Vizio remained one of the fastest growing brands in Q2'06 and jumped into the top 10 in LCDs and remained in the top 10 in plasma. It led the 37-inch LCD market with a 19 percent share, nearly 40 percent higher than its closest competitor, and was number 1 in the 35 to 39-inch category for all TV technologies."
