LG Serie 1 Retro Classic TV: mildly-modernized

When does retro go too far?  We reckon this Korea-only LG Serie 1 Retro Classic TV is teetering on the edge, but we still love the idea of 4:3 14-inch CRT set with 60s-futuristic stylings.  Although it may look like a TV you could stumble across in a second-hand store, LG have squeezed a digital TV tuner, composite input and a proper remote control into the package, just in case you’re feeling too lazy to twiddle the (working) knobs.

There’s also a rather tongue-in-cheek switch that flips the display from color through black & white and sepia modes.  It’s a little small, yes, but it would make the ideal accompaniment to your favorite retro games console.

Unfortunately you’ll need to head over to Korea to pick up the LG Serie 1 Retro Classic TV.  It’s available in orange (14SR1EB) and in dark brown (14SR1DB), priced at 249,000 KRW ($216).
