Although the Enthusiast segment always garners most of the headlines due to the cutting edge technology, gaudy frame rates, and ­prices, the Enthusiast segment only represents 4.7% of the market. The Mainstream and Performance segments make up over 88% of the market. Those segments represent the real sweet spot for…
