Ever wonder which manufacturer currently sells the most flat panel TVs in the U.S.? According to recent national sales figures, it’s Samsung, with a 20.2% share of the total market. Rounding out the top four spots are Vizio at 14.3%, Sony at 13.5%, and Panasonic at 10.7%.
So just what is it that Samsung is doing to capture the attention and dollars of American consumers? “A lot of customers come in with consumer magazines that give high ratings to Samsung TVs, and they like the fact that they can get one at a good price,” says Abt TV sales specialist Joe Trejo.

“Samsung is also the only major manufacturer that produces all three major types of TVs—plasma, LCD, and DLP,” adds Abt TV sales specialist Jay Lefor. “I’m sure that has helped them capture such a large share of the overall TV market.”
