HDTV manufacturer Vizio has launched four new LCD HDTV models at Wal-Mart stores. The sets tout all-black designs, range from 26 to 42 inches and start at $448.
“Our customers are more technology driven than ever before and are now searching for the right brands at the right price,” said Kevin O'Connor, VP and general merchandise manager for Wal-Mart's consumer electronics.
According to DisplaySearch president, Ross Young, Vizio's North American flat-panel TV unit share surged from 5% in Q4 2006 to 9% in Q1 2007 as a result of the rapidly growing warehouse club channel and expansion into new channels through Wal-Mart and Sears.
