Top-selling TV brands: Sharp, Sony, Philips, Samsung

In Q4 2005, Syntax-Brillian was the 8th largest seller of LCD TVs in the United States, according to iSuppli. At the same time, Vizio TVs made by V Inc. emerged from obscurity to #11, notching a 2% share, just under Toshiba, which had 3%. Olevia and Vizio are nipping away as Sharp fights to hold onto its leading 13% share, with Sony on its tail and stiffening competition from such other makers as Philips and Samsung.
