LG Korea has unveiled a somewhat unusual TV - at least today. Their new TV is called LG 1 Retro and with its very familiar looks it might trigger your inner nostalgic feelings. It’s not a LCD-TV, plasma-TV nor OLED-TV; it’s actually a CRT TV in chic retro design. <br /><br /><h3>LG Retro TV</h3>LG Korea has unveiled the LG 1 Retro. It is a 14-inch TV going back to roots and back to the times when a Television required some more space in your living room. <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lgretro-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lgretro-1.jpg" alt="LG 1 Retro" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>LG 1 Retro</i></p><br />The Retro TV has been influences by the '60s. The TV is based on the picture tube technology (CRT) that prevailed before the LCD and plasma technologies entered. <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lgretro-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lgretro-2.jpg" alt="LG 1 Retro" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>LG 1 Retro</i></p><br />It has a red cabinet with four aluminum legs and two antennas on top.
