Best Television of the Year: LG B6 OLED 4K TV
LG's B6 OLED 4K TV (model OLEDB6P) produces the most lifelike images of any television available today. Thanks to OLED technology's unique ability to turn each pixel on or completely off, LG OLED TVs produce perfect blacks and flawlessly render crisp, brilliant colors and rich shadow detail. As a result, images appear more real, with more perceived depth as well as vibrant color. All 2016 LG OLED TVs, including the B6 OLED 4K TV, support both industry-standard HDR formats – HDR10 and Dolby Vision.
"LG's B6 Series (and the 55-inch model I tested) proved to be yet another heavy-hitter from the company's 2016 lineup of organic light-emitting diode displays," said Lee Neikirk, senior staff writer, Reviewed.com.
Best Washer for New Parents: LG TWINWash
The LG TWINWash system allows users to wash two loads of laundry at the same time, utilizing the LG SideKick™ "mini" washing machine as a second washing machine placed in the pedestal beneath the main LG front-load washer. The LG SideKick pedestal washer is specifically designed to wash small, custom-care laundry loads including special care items such as intimates, delicates and active wear and can hold three to four pounds of laundry in one load. It can be used at the same time as the front-load washer or on its own, making it perfect for families needing to wash a small load of children's clothes whenever they need. Plus, it's compatible with LG front-load washers from 2009 onwards.
"You know how front-load washers are often sold with risers, since it's a pain to bend over to load and unload them?" asked Ben Keough, editor in chief of news and features, Reviewed.com. "Well, LG put a second, smaller, top-load washer inside the riser, so you can do a separate load of delicates while you launder heavier stuff in the main washer. Genius, no?"
LG TWINWash refers to the combination of a main ENERGY STAR® certified LG front-load washer and accompanying LG SideKick pedestal washer, which is available in both graphite steel and white finishes across 27- , 29- and 30-inch width footprints, providing greater flexibility based on one's laundry room set-up. Through November 30th for consumers who purchase an LG front-load 4-piece laundry bundle*, LG will cover the difference in the cost of upgrading a storage pedestal to the LG SideKick pedestal washer.
