SMART AWARDS 2013 / APPLIANCES

We Pick The Best Appliances For 2010

By The SmartHouse Team | Wednesday | 02/12/2009

Coffee machines, washing machines and even the humble vacuum cleaner are taking on a whole new look. We have seen steam ovens, innovative coffee systems and new convection cooking appliances that have taken interesting approaches to older technologies. With each, the focus is on making devices more efficient, easier, and good looking.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
