Sales of LCD televisions have hit a milestone, becoming the number one television technology. In the fourth quarter of 2007, for the first time ever, more LCD TVs were sold than CRT models according to market analysts at DisplaySearch. Compared to CRT televisions, which managed a 46% market share in the 3 months of the year, LCD TVs accounted for a 47% share.
It looks like at least part of the boost came from 1080p models, which saw an increase of nearly 300% for the year, and accounted for more than 15% all LCD units sold and 60% of those with screen sizes larger than 40 inches in the last half of last year. Nearly 80 million LCDs were reportedly sold during all of last year.
