DVD Players Outnumber VCRs in US Homes

Nielsen has found out some very interesting statistics for VCRs and DVDs in American homes. The year 2006 has resulted in 79.2% of all American households having at least one VCR and 81.2% having a DVD player. When Nielsen tracking the numbers in 1999, 88.6% of households reported owning a VCR and a mere 6.7% owned a DVD player. It doesn't take an Einstein to figure out that DVD player use has rocketed over 7 years. That fact, however, doesn't mean that VCRs have disappeared from American households.
