LG Serie 1 Retro Classic Tv: Everything Old is New Again

by Paul Strauss

So now that you’ve bought that brand new 60-inch 3D capable 1-inch thick LED/LCD television for your living room, what’s next? Looks like the guys at LG are going back to the future with their latest TV.


The retro-styled LG Serie 1 television doesn’t just look like an old set, it actually uses good old CRT technology. No schmancy flat screens here, just a old-fashioned 4:3 aspect ratio cathode ray tube for you to watch your reruns of I Love Lucy on.

The set features a 14-inch diagonal screen, complete with rabbit-ear antennae and chrome legs. It even has old-school knobs for changing channels and adjusting volume. However, this set has a modern digital tuner, composite video for your retro video game console, and a wireless remote so it’s not completely antique tech.


For extra fun, you can flip the television between full color, black & white and sepia tone modes:


The sets are available in the orange color shown above (model 14SR1EB) and a dark brown (model 14SR1DB). At this point the LG Serie 1 Retro Classic TV is currently only available in Korea, where it currently retails for 249,000 KRW (appx. $216 USD).

    Design is made up of some basic premises, and if you understand them you can design anything that will impress and illuminate your readers.

    Wish we could buy this in the USA… and that it came in 36″+. My uncle is looking into buying a used CRT because we do not like some of the features of the flat panel TVs — like the life expectancy, for instance.
