LG presents two TV series with focus on design, picture quality and user-friendliness. The new models are called SL8000 and SL9000. The latter also features LED.
The two new TV ranges from LG called SL8000 and SL9000 offer innovative “Borderless” design. SL8000 has already won an EISA Award for “Best Value LCD-TV 2009-2010”.
- “We want LG to be the top name in home entertainment. To make that happen we’ve listened closely to our customers and invested heavily in product development,” said Simon Kang, CEO and President of LG Home Entertainment Company. “The BORDERLESS TVs we’re introducing at IFA 2009 show exactly what we’ve accomplished, setting new standards in home entertainment. These TVs look better than any others on the market and the viewing experience they provide is second-to-none.”
Their design represents years of research and development. Both products break the accepted conventions of how TVs are supposed to look, opening up new possibilities for a future with true freedom in TV design says LG
