Retaining its title as champ of the LCD HDTV manufacturers, VIZIO announced today that the company has sold more LCD HDTVs than any other manufacturer for the second straight quarter.

Besting their nearest competitor by 30 percent, VIZIO's sales are up 32 percent versus last year. Also, they moved 21.4 percent of all LCD HDTVS sold in the US (and 29.0 percent of LED LCDs).

How have they been doing so well? VIZIO was happy to say it was 3D:

"Meeting VIZIO's brand promise of providing 'Entertainment Freedom For All' is the driving force behind all of our sales successes. The spread of our Theater 3D models now goes well beyond early adopters and has made 3D a feature that friends and family can finally enjoy watching together," stated Randy Waynick, Chief Sales Officer, VIZIO. "And it's not only Theater 3D TVs that are flying off the shelves, it's our connected TVs with VIZIO Internet Apps and our lineup of Sound Bars and Blu-ray players. Consumers want connectivity, energy efficiency, value, and the best technology -- VIZIO delivers on every single one of these."
