    that line chart uses the worng colours for me - 4 of those coloured squares look identical to me :-)

    The pie charts were better.
    presumably it's just pre-built machines and not kits as well.

    Be interesting to see a breakdown of kits as well. How many iprusa i3's and how many deltas etc.

    The data is hard to trust, since there are duplicate entries in the graphs. If they are not careful enough to proof their results, how I can be assured that they are careful in the way they collect their data.

    Whoever the idiot is that decided 5 different colors of yellow/orange should be used for a graph should be fired.

    This is biased : most of the sales of the smaller manufacturers go through their own website.

    Hi, this is Kevin from JeeQ Data. Sorry for the confusion. The data is very authentic from Amazon.com/BestBuy.com site. Could you tell me what are the duplicate entries in the graph? Sometimes the product name is too long so we have to truncate them, but there is a productID attached to the product name, which is unique in merchant website.

    sorry the idiot is here. This is Kevin from JeeQ Data. I kind of agree with you the color is pretty boring and too close to tell the difference, we will add a feature to let user customize their chart color set in the future release.

    Hi, this is Kevin from JeeQ Data. What you said is true. Since we only summarize top 10 products so lots of the smaller manufacturers are out of chart. We have the plan to cover top 20 products in the future release, should may bring more manufacturers back. Stay tuned.

    Sorry I was unclear. Biased is not appropriate. This data is MISLEADING because since many manufacturers choose not to sell via Amazon or BEST BUY, they are not included in the study.

    And the consequence is simple : even BRIAN here got caught in it. The title to the chart became "Best Selller Market Share". This is now totally untrue since the study takes numbers from Amazon and Best Buy only thus the intel is absolutely NOT representative of the entire market.
