RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America Inc., a market leader and award-recognized innovator in consumer electronics, received an industry-leading customer satisfaction ranking in the annual J.D. Power 2013 High-Definition Television (HDTV) Satisfaction Report. The study, which split its segment distinction in terms of size, recognized Samsung as the highest in customer satisfaction with HDTVs 50 inches and above. The accolades highlight Samsung’s long-standing global TV leadership reputation, an industry position it has held globally for more than seven years.
J.D. Power surveyed more than 6,000 consumers who purchased an HDTV in the past 12 months to arrive at the rankings. Satisfaction is measured on a scale of 1,000 based on seven factors: performance; reliability; ease of operation; style/appearance; features; price; and warranty. According to the study, Samsung ranked highest in the 50-inches and above category with a score of 879. The brand ranked highest for overall performance, reliability, style and appearance, and features in a category that continues to be the fastest growing TV segment with a 50 percent increase in the last year.
“Samsung’s highest priority has always been to leverage our technological expertise to deliver a remarkable viewing experience and our products reflect the efforts we put into picture quality, brightness, sharpness and detail,” said Joe Stinziano, Executive Vice President of the Consumer Business Division at Samsung Electronics America. “We are honored to be recognized for these efforts by our valued customers, and J.D. Power.”
