Awards program supported by research from The NPD Group honors the most successful products in retail and e-tail for 2008
Fremont, California, May 6th, 2009 -- Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced it was honored with one of RetailVision's coveted Best Selling Product Awards in the e-tail PC RAM Best-Seller category.
RetailVision Spring 2009, produced by Everything Channel, took place April 27-30 at the Boca Raton Resort in Boca Raton, FL. The award program was supported by research from The NPD Group, the leading global provider of consumer and retail market research information.
Corsair earned the e-tail PC RAM Best-Seller award for its 4GB XMS2 DHXmemory kit (TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX), which achieved the highest sales totals in both retail and e-tail markets for 2008.
Corsair's Director of Sales, North America, Anthony Andrews, accepted the award from Everything Channel Vice President and Channelweb.com Editor, Larry Hooper.
"Corsair is proud to accept this award, and we'd like to thank our retail and e-tail channel partners for helping make our 4GB XMS memory kit a true best-seller." Said Tony Andrews, Director of Sales, North America,"We could not have achieved this milestone without the strong relationships that enable Corsair and our partners to work together to deliver this outstanding product to gamers and enthusiasts. We look forward to continuing our mutual success in 2009 as we lead the way with a complete range of high performance DDR3 memory solutions for the new Intel® Core® i7 and AMD Phenom II platforms."
Thanks to its leadership in PC memory technology and expertise in the PC gaming market, Corsair was instrumental in discovering and raising awareness of the benefits of using at least 4GB of memory in systems designed for high-performance gaming (see http://www.corsair.com/4gb-upgrade), helping to drive demand and sales.
The award for a 4GB kit of gaming memory highlighted the importance of PC gaming products to the retail channel, and from the show floor to the boardrooms, the latest in gaming gear was top of mind for many retailers atRetailVision Spring 2009.
In addition to the e-tail PC RAM Best-Seller award for Corsair, awards were given in a host of other categories, from wireless networking gear to multifunction printers. Each award recognized the cream of the crop in the retail and e-tail landscapes for 2008. The winners were chosen using the market analysis firm the NPD Group's retail sales tracker, which aggregates product sales from 100 retailers and e-tailers, representing roughly 20,000 storefronts.
Stephen Baker, NPD Group vice president of industry analysis recognized the Best-Sellers' achievements, and commented that other manufacturers can learn from their success."It is important that manufacturers realize that every step they take at retail and e-tail counts," Baker said. "It's this kind of data and recognition that helps vendors understand what they need to do to be successful in partnering with retailers and e-tailers."
