Sales for TFT LCDs with sizes of at least 10 inches have reached a record level in the third quarter of this year. For the first time, sales climbed above the $10 billion mark, landing at $11.89 billion.

The Q3 result represents a 20% increase over the $9.86 billion reported in Q2 of this year and a 41.9%gain compared to $8.38 billion in the same quarter of 2004, according to market research firm iSuppli.

Total large-sized LCD unit shipments in the third quarter rose to 55.5 million units, up 15 percent from 48.2 million in the second quarter and up 75.6 percent compared to 31.6 million in third quarter of 2004.

iSuppli said that revenue growth in the television market was driven by a strong rise in unit shipments, which increased to 7.3 million in the third quarter, up from 5.4 million in the second quarter. For the first time, the 32-inch segment became the dominant size for LCD TVs in the third quarter, accounting for 29 percent of units, while 20- and 26-inch panels tied for the second position, each with 22 percent, the market research firm said.

Combined desktop monitor and mobile PC panel shipments in the third quarter increased to 46 million units, up from 41 million during the previous quarter. Price increases in the segments of 17-inch and 15-inch devices for the desktop and 12-inch and 15-inch screens for notebooks allowed manufacturers to grow their revenues by $1 billion compared to the second quarter.

LG.Philips LCD maintained leading rank among manufacturers of large-sized TFT LCDs in the third quarter and finished the with a 21.3% market share. Samsung came in second with a 21.2% share.

The table below and attached presents iSuppli's ranking of large-sized TFT-LCD suppliers in the second quarter. AUO landed at 14.2%, ChiMei and 11.5% and CPT at 7.3%.

Hmmm .... I wanna buy a LCDTV and .. well I want something that supports High Definition ..
Ive seen some LCDs but .. I dont know if they are any good .. :(
for example the screens that I layed my eye on :
Toshiba 27WL55
Toshiba 27WL46
AOC LCDTV27

also .. why dont I see any LCD tv with 100hz ? only 50 or 60 :(
and how do I know if some tv is HDTV compatible ?
and ... should I wait a few months before buyin .. so the prices will drop or some newer and better lcd tvs will be out ?

hi...dont know about your models...you rather buy some Sony's model......and not only 27" but rather with 40+" screen size...

secondly...about 100 vs. 60 (50)Hz....you cant compare CRT and LCD monitors or TV's that way...trust me that any LCD's 50 (60)Hz are on the same level if not even better than CRT's 100Hz...so dont worry.... What you should worry (if you are at least as picky as me )....are other functions and specifications....like....viewing angle....contrast...resolution....response time...also maybe PIP (picture in picture) or POP (picture on picture)...and many other functions...

If some model is HDTV compatible...then this (HD Ready or HDTV ready or something like that) will be written with BIG LETTERS for sure... Dont worry...you will know for sure when you see one of those TV's....


Finally...like I always said...surely its worth to wait....always is....prices will drop over time...and new better models will be out for sure!(just dont ask me to list their names )...

Good luck!

SF.

ok then...just pick the one that suits you most...nothing easier than that if you have those Millions of $$$ in your pocket...

and if it costs twice as much as in USA...then maybe find someone from USA and let he/she buys you 2 and send them to Israel....ask MP3Mogul for more info....

Good luck!

Toshiba 27WL55 ? So that's why you'we listed it twice?

Yes....from those models above...I would also choose 27WL55...or....30WL46. It depends whether 27" is enough for your needs or if you prefer bigger (30") ones... Maybe 27WL55 is in slight advance here...at least has better response time and contrast ratio (its not that big difference but anyway)....but on the downside...it is smaller than 30" , has less connectors and "only" 10x2 Watt speakers (30" - 25x2 Watt).... But if all those minor things doesnt bother you....and if the price is acceptable....I would also recommend you 27WL55....

Good luck , Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2006 to Everyone! And may all your secret wishes came true!

Cya soon...

I have kinda a small room I think .. the bed aint too far from the tv .. currantly I have 21" fat tv and its fine except its only support PAL and its sound is flat, doesnt have enough connectors and its kinda twisted .. you dont see very good .. I have it for about .. 10+ years I think .. aint sure though ..
hmmmmmmm ...
If I wont be too happy with the sound I will connect it to the PC speakers .. I have surround :)
I usually watch movies from the PC or play PS2 games and I hear from my Creative Inspire 4400 speakers which are more than enough .. they are great ! :)
very happy with them ..

do you think I will get a clear view on that tv ?

Huhhhhh...very hard to say....well...this samsung tv surely is slightly bigger (32" vs 27")....also has 5.1 surround system (which i didnt noticed @ Toshiba)...also has PIP (which i also didnt noticed @ T)....but otherwise its more or less the same...sooooooo...if i were you....and had to choose from one of those 2 models....I would look at their prices....and if this Samsung was only some 100$ more expensive....I would buy it....otherwise I would pick Toshiba....thats my opinion....

So what are their prices in your wonderland?

...so around 1500-1900US$....thats not THAT MUCH...

So if prices are almost the same...then (at least I) would go for Samsung here...although like i said....Toshiba is also good option here...slightly smaller but anyway...so good luck with picking the one that suits you best...

....and Sony has even better view...so what....

I just said what i would "maybe" buy if i were buying LCD TV and had to choose from those 2 models... But since I havent seen them "in action" yet....I cant tell you more....I made my conclusions from specs only.... And since I am always fan of BIGGER & BETTER....and since Samsung is BIGGER (in screen size at least)....I choose that model....but its up to you to decide what you like more....

Both are good options like i said before...and if Toshiba has much better view...then go for it....and dont mind what SiliconFreak has to say here....

I already mentioned it was for my room and that I dont have much space ..
and to buy a giant LCD will be stupid ! even if it will be 100$ ..
why ? because I will be so close to the screen that it will look ****y .. I will see cubes ..
thats why 27-32 are the best for me .. both of price .. size... specs. and lots of other stuff ..
do me  a favour and go to some store .. check all the screens .. view the lcd tvs from close .. and slowly start to more further away til you manage to view smooth and clear with no cubes ..
its not like PC lcd monitors that you can seat close and view perfectly and clear ..
