You’re Doing It Wrong: LG Unveils Retro TV with Channel and Volume Knobs

by

We live in a marvelous age. It’s so nice not to not have to get up off your butt to change the channel or turn the sound up. Who wants exercise? Besides, as a species, our fingers are probably stronger than they have ever been, hitting the keys on remotes and using our touchscreens. LG wants to undo all of this progress by introducing a TV that could have come from 30+ years ago.

LG’s 32LN630R (~$750 USD) is a brand new full HD flat screen equipped with a 32 inch IPS panel display. But it has actual knobs on it! How dare they? That front is trimmed with wood and it even has those old-timey legs. Funny thing is, this isn’t the first time LG has tried such shenanigans.

What if I don’t want to leave the couch? Don’t buy it people! I will never go back! You hear me LG? Never! What’s next? An eight-track player in a smartphone? A phonograph in a tablet?

    So no remote capability at all? I was looking for a bedroom TV, and this retro design would be awesome… if I didn’t have to get out of bed to change things.
