Flat-Panel Displays: Samsung
CEO: Kwon Oh Hyun
Despite winning the support and partnership subcategories, NEC lost the overall Flat Panel Displays category -- by a hair -- to Samsung. Samsung, which won in the product innovation subcategory, earned a 106.9 in product quality, the second highest score in that criterion in the entire ARC. Samsung and NEC's overall scores improved from 2011, while ViewSonic's declined.
