Vizio sells over 250,000 HDTVs on Black Friday

Vizio Say what you will about the economy, but Vizio seems to be doing well. Last week leading up to Black Friday, the company sold over a quarter million HDTVs. According to a press release issued yesterday, Vizio moved 280,000 HDTVs total on the week of November 22, a 40% jump over last year.

Of those HDTVs, 50,000 models were 120 or 240-Hz screens, and 20,000 were 50 inches or larger. These two groups represent respective jumps of 945% and 1000% over last year, impressive numbers. Vizio also sold 7,000 sound bars, but that's not really as interesting as the over quarter million televisions.
