    Samsung, LG Conquer U.S. Digital TV Market
    Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics are doing well in the U.S. digital TV market. ��Last month we posted US$373 million in sales in the U.S.,�� a Samsung spokesman said Wednesday -- the first time that the Korean giant has crossed the $300 million mark there. The figure is even more impressive given that $320 million was the company��s entire TV sales in the U.S. market in 2002.

    ��Even though August is part of the vacation season and not a peak sales time, we still managed to set record-breaking sales,�� Samsung Electronics America��s consumer electronics chief Park Jae-soon said. ��In September the heavy sales period really gets going, so we expect to move even more units.��

    LG Electronics said its 42-inch LCD TV with built-in digital video recorder or so-called ��time machine TV�� was designated by the U.S. IT specialty magazine Electronic House as one of its products of the year. ��LG is the only company to offer a flat-screen digital TV that integrates a high-definition digital video recorder,�� the magazine said.

    Next year, 30 percent of all of LG TV sales will be ��time machine�� type units, Yoon Sang-han, the head of LG Electronics�� Display Unit says.
