Study: LCD monitor, TV shipments grew in 2002

Despite continued weakness in the electronics industry worldwide, LCD (liquid crystal display) monitor shipments grew to a record high and demand for LCD TVs surged last year, according to market analyst DisplaySearch Inc.

In the third quarter last year, worldwide LCD monitor shipments rose by 4 percent compared to the previous quarter, the Austin, Texas company said in a statement released Dec. 30.

DisplaySearch predicted that fourth quarter growth would be higher at 29 percent, leading to a record high of 9.8 million units with average LCD monitor prices falling significantly faster in this quarter.

Among LCD monitor makers, Dell Computer Corp. maintained its market lead for the third consecutive quarter in the third quarter of 2002, DisplaySearch said. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. took second place, while NEC-Mitsubishi Electric Visual Systems Corp. overtook Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) to move into third position.

LCD TV shipments in the third quarter last year were up 24 percent compared to the previous quarter, to 338,000 units, and in the third quarter of 2004 they are projected to rise to more than 2 million units, DisplaySearch said in a separate statement released Monday.

Market demand for LCD TVs in 2002 grew by 113 percent in 2002, DisplaySearch said. This demand is expected to increase in 2003 with a 182 percent growth due to factors such as the availability of larger and less expensive TVs and the spread of high-definition broadcasting, it said.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
