Also, Simple Link technology means the user can easily operate the product using a TV remote control.
This product boasts superb sound quality that harmonizes with high definition, supporting a novel high-quality format like Dolby-Tru HD, DTS-HD etc.
LG Electronics also introduced the 10-inch Net Book (X110) with a built-in Intel Atom Processor.
The product guarantees enhanced usability and combines an 80 G hard disk and keyboard with a slim, streamlined design.
Standout features include wireless LAN or 3G HSPA (High Speed Packet Access).
Having already revealed its 4-door refrigerator to the US market, LG Electronics revealed this product to the European market. The 4-door refrigerator boasts enhanced usability in comparison to the previous 3-door refrigerator.
The refrigerator has two freezer drawers, meaning that the user can organize and store foods more conveniently. This also minimizes the risk of strain to the back when the user bends down to take out food.
By engraving patterns on a stainless material using 'etching' technology, one of the PDP rear-plate technologies, and finishing with tempered glass, LG Electronics created an elegant and spectacular feel.
Following last year's world-first vacuum cleaner with automatic Dust Compression Technology, LG Electronics presented another product with enhanced performance, usability and hygiene.
With the automatic dust compression system, the Rotablade rotates continuously from side to side and compacts the dust intake forming solid dust cubes so that it is more hygienic when removing dust from the product. For this feature, it is gaining popularity in Europe.
