SEOUL, Dec. 20, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled its first gaming laptop (model 17G90Q), expanding its premium UltraGearTM lineup and bringing exciting news to gamers worldwide. A powerful performer with a seriously sleek design, the CES 2022 Innovation Award-winning laptop delivers sublime gaming experiences and the freedom to enjoy them anywhere, at any time.

LG’s take-anywhere gaming rig features an 11th Gen Intel® Tiger Lake H processor, NVIDIA GeForceTM RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card, dual-channel memory and an ultra-fast dual SSD setup.

Also, LG’s cooling system with vapor chamber keeps the laptop running cool, even when pushed to the limits.

Sharing DNA with LG’s lightweight gram laptops, the 17G90Q has a streamlined, highly-portable design. The new, slim laptop packs a large screen and an impressive 93Wh battery while maintaining a thickness of under 21.4 millimeters and a weight of less than 2.7 kilograms. The LG UltraGear gaming laptop features an aluminum casing that offers style and durability, while the winged UltraGear badge on its exterior clearly communicates the power and quality LG’s premium gaming brand is known for.

The 17G90Q further optimizes the gaming experience via LG’s gaming software, LG UltraGear Studio, which lets users customize gaming-related options and track a variety of performance data – including CPU clock, GPU TDP and clock, and memory share rate – in real-time. And for a completely unique setup, users can choose and apply a different color to every single key of the laptop’s attractive RGB keyboard.

Along with next-level personalization, speed and superior picture quality, the LG UltraGear gaming laptop delivers realistic, three-dimensional sound with its built-in 2 Way speaker system. Supporting DTS:X Ultra, the speakers accurately convey the directionality and location of sounds in the gaming environment, helping players to find their teammates and track down their enemies more easily.

      Company’s Bath Solution, PuriCare HydroTower and System Ironing Deliver
      Enhanced Hygiene, Ease-of-Use and Thoughtful Design

      SEOUL, Feb. 23, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling a range of home lifestyle solutions at the 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, USA, from February 27-29. The company’s latest innovations, including the bath solution, PuriCare HydroTower and system ironing, use sophisticated technologies and user-friendly design to elevate and enrich daily living.
      Bath Solution for an Enhanced Bathroom Experience
      LG is expanding enhanced customer experience to the bathroom, one of the main living spaces in the home, by presenting a bath solution that provides convenience and comfort. LG’s Smart Bath and Shower Purifier offers a refreshing shower experience, delivering clean, purified water through an advanced water filter. The system intelligently monitors water usage and provides timely filter replacement alerts to help facilitate a consistently pure stream of water.
      For greater comfort in the shower, LG’s Smart Bath and Shower Purifier leverages thermostatics to maintain the selected water temperature. Its intuitive control unit features a digital display that allows users to see the current water temperature, making it easy to adjust the heat – or coolness – of the water to their satisfaction. LG’s bath solution also includes the Smart Airflower, which supports a comfortable bathroom environment by actively controlling air temperature and humidity. Designed to rapidly circulate air and reduce dampness, the Smart Airflower is equipped with two fans that extract moisture, and one that sends out warm, dry air.
      The third part of the bath solution is a versatile smart mirror that serves as a hub for AI-based services, provides helpful content including shower and bath tips for bathroom usage and functions as a conventional mirror.
      PuriCare HydroTower for Hygiene, Health and Convenience
      The LG PuriCare HydroTower combines cutting-edge air purification and humidification technologies and boasts a stylish, column-type form factor that complements any décor or space. Making its international debut at KBIS 2024, the HydroTower was successfully launched in South Korea last year, where it surpassed 10,000 units sold in only 50 days.
      Producing a refreshing, purified mist, the HydroTower maintains a clean water supply and water tank by utilizing advanced tech that removes harmful substances and minerals, and prevents limescale.1,2 LG’s innovative product heats water to 100 degrees Celsius to halt bacterial growth,3 delivering peace of mind as well as effective humidification. Additionally, the HydroTower is capable of filtering ultrafine dust particles from the air, providing a healthier, more pleasant indoor environment.4
      Before it commences humidification operation, the PuriCare HydroTower uses steam to cleanse and automatically dry the path that the moisture particles pass through, further boosting hygiene.5 LG’s user-friendly design allows for the easy removal and disassembly of components – such as the cover and water tank – for convenient rinsing. What’s more, the product can quickly reach the user’s desired humidity level, providing a robust humidification capacity of 700 cubic centimeters (23.6 ounces) per hour.
      All-in-One System Ironing
      Technologically advanced yet elegantly simple, LG’s system ironing delivers effective wrinkle management to help users elevate their personal style. A sleek, collapsable ironing board with an integrated steam iron and accessory storage, system ironing generates five-bar high pressure steam – which is five times the pressure of a conventional steamer – to smooth out unwanted creases. The additional steaming power comes from a high-pressure steam generator and from the internal heating system built into the ironing board surface. The high-pressure steam particles produced by system ironing penetrate fabrics to greatly reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
      Incorporating two fans that help eliminate moisture from garments, the ‘Styling Board’ works to prevent fabric shrinkage, making it suitable for managing delicate items of clothing. The convenient design of LG’s system ironing offers simple board-height adjustment, a ‘holding’ button that automatically locks the product’s wheels during ironing, and an easy-folding design for hassle-free storage.
      “LG is excited to introduce KBIS 2024 visitors to an exceptional lineup of home innovations, including the bath solution, PuriCare HydroTower and system ironing,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to introduce smart life solutions across diverse categories, deeply rooted in our understanding of customer lifestyles, seeking to lead the market through thoughtful innovations for a better life.”
      LG’s new home solutions will be on display at the company’s exhibition booth (West Hall #2343, Las Vegas Convention Center) during KBIS 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

      1 Tested by Korea Textile Inspection & Testing Research Institute (KOTITI) using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure the concentration of substances that cause water hardness (tap water) by comparing post-filter concentration with initial levels, resulting in 99.9 percent of removal of scaling induced by Calcium and Magnesium. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
      2 Tested by Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL) using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure filtration performance (residual chlorine in glass), optional filtration performance (water hardness) and dissolution stability. The results demonstrated a 100 percent removal rate for residual chlorine, 100 percent removal of water hardness, and compliance with dissolution safety standards. It is different from filtration for purifying drinking water. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
      3 Reduces 99.999 percent of harmful bacteria in the water tank. Tested by Korea Textile Inspection & Testing Research Institute (KOTITI) and Korea Testing & Research Institute (KTR) using the HydroTower test model HY703RWAA measuring the number of bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Bacilluspneumoniae, Klebsiella pneumoniae) in water under conditions of 20±5 degrees Celsius and 50± 10 percent humidity after the completion of the ‘humidifying water sterilization’ mode. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
      4 Reduces 99.999 percent of ultrafine dust as small as 0.01 micrometers. Tested by Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL) using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure the dust removal rate in Clean Turbo Mode under conditions of 23±1.0 degrees Celsius and 50±2.0 percent of room humidity. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
      5 Tested by LG Internal Lab using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure the weight change of the humidification flow path after one hour of operating Turbo Humidification mode, then stopping the operation (Auto Drying) under conditions of 23±2 degrees Celsius and 50±10 percent humidity. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.

      ‘Born to Game,’ LG UltraGear Has Been Supporting Gen.G Teams With Its High-
      Performing Gaming Monitors Since 2021

      SEOUL, Jan. 17, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is extending its official partnership with Gen.G Esports (Gen.G), one of the world’s preeminent esports organizations. As part of this collaboration, LG UltraGear – the industry-leading gaming monitors, renowned for their rapid refresh rates and responsive performance – will continue to be provided to Gen.G’s professional teams. The partnership aims to promote esports globally and will involve various exciting activations in the international esports scene.
      Gen.G operates a number of professional esports teams specializing in popular multiplayer games including League of Legends. Since LG UltraGear was named the official display of Gen.G in 2021, the organization’s League of Legends team in South Korea has achieved remarkable success in the League of Legends Champions Korea. The team secured three consecutive season victories – starting from the 2022 summer season through to the 2023 summer season.
      Chovy, a gold medalist in the League of Legends event at the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou and the mid-laner for Gen.G’s League of Legends team, praised LG UltraGear gaming monitors saying, “Their quick response times and high refresh rates provide an advantage in complex in-game situations, enabling more precise control and smoother playmaking.” While very impressed by all of the high-performance options in the UltraGear monitor lineup, Chovy’s personal favorite is the 27-inch UltraGear OLED gaming monitor (model 27GR95GE).
      In addition to supporting Gen.G team members in their pursuit of championship goals, LG actively collaborates with them in the development of new LG UltraGear gaming monitors. The feedback from professional players helps fine-tune the latest models. The recently unveiled League of Legends-themed UltraGear OLED gaming monitor (model 27GR95QL) offers an incredibly immersive gaming experience with a unique ‘League of Legends’ aesthetic, and its design was influenced by input from professional players. LG also supports the Gen.G Global Academy by providing ultra-fast gaming monitors (model 25GR75FG) to students aspiring to become esports professionals.
      “It is such an honor to enter into our fourth year of partnership with LG UltraGear. Since 2021, they have been our partner in innovation, enriching the world of esports for gaming fans around the globe,” says Arnold Hur, CEO of Gen.G Esports. “They support not only our professional teams, but also the development of the next generation of gamers in the Gen.G Global Academy.”
      “We are very proud and pleased that LG UltraGear is helping Gen.G players to deliver consistently excellent results in major tournaments,” said YS Lee, vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Business Solutions Company. “LG UltraGear remains committed to developing high-end gaming products and to supporting the latest gaming technologies, with the goal of delivering a gaming experience that can satisfy all esports players, whether they’re enthusiastic amateurs or top-ranked professionals.”

      2024 UltraGear OLED Gaming Monitor Lineup Introduces Pixel Sound Technology,
      Delivering Clear, Cinematic Audio That Brings a New Dimension to Gaming

      SEOUL, Dec. 21, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is set to unveil its latest lineup of UltraGear OLED gaming monitors, designed to provide superior gaming experiences. The expanded lineup includes the highly anticipated 32-inch 4K gaming monitor (model 32GS95UE), which boasts a 240Hz refresh rate, an ultra-fast 0.03ms Gray-to-Gray (GtG) response time, and LG’s Dual-Hz feature and Pixel Sound technology. The company is also introducing stellar 39- and 34-inch models with ultra-wide curved screens: the 39GS95QE and the CES 2024 Innovation Award-winning 34GS95QE.
      The First Dual-Hz Gaming Monitor to Offer 4K 240Hz / FHD 480Hz
      The groundbreaking 32GS95UE is the first UltraGear monitor equipped with the new Dual-Hz feature, allowing users to switch between 4K (3,840 x 2,160) at 240Hz and Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080) at 480Hz with one simple click. This time-saving innovation, easily managed via a hotkey or joystick’s directional switch, lets users instantly apply the optimal combination of screen resolution and refresh rate for the genre of game they’re playing. For fast-paced action titles and shooting games, users can select FHD 480Hz, while visually rich story-driven games can be enjoyed in 4K 240Hz.
      In addition to the Dual-Hz feature, the 32-inch UltraGear OLED possesses an impressive 0.03ms (GtG) response time that helps eliminate motion blur, boost clarity and deliver dynamic gameplay. This, combined with the exceptional color and contrast that LG’s self-lit OLED technology is known for, takes the visual experience to a whole new level.
      The 32GS95UE further enhances the user experience with its minimal screen bezels and powerful, nuanced sound. LG’s 4-side virtually borderless design provides a stunning display that doesn’t distract from the on-screen action. The monitor creates an exhilarating, three-dimensional soundscape with Pixel Sound technology and an integrated front-facing sound system featuring two woofers and support for DTS Virtual:X. The speakers are cleverly hidden behind the OLED panel itself, eliminating the need for external speakers and saving valuable desk space.
      Elevating Gaming Immersion Through Innovative Design
      The CES 2024 Innovation Award-winning 34-inch 34GS95QE and its larger sibling, the 39-inch 39GS95QE, expand the gaming experience with their 800R-curved, 21:9 aspect ratio UltraWide Quad-HD (3,440 x 1,440) resolution OLED displays. Elevating user immersion, these panoramic monitors also feature LG’s Anti-Glare & Low Reflection Coating, a 4-side borderless design, 240Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms (GtG) response time. The 800R curvature and cinematic 21:9 format of the 34GS95QE and 39GS95QE, together with LG’s OLED display tech, add a new dimension to gaming and content viewing.
      The latest LG UltraGear OLED gaming monitors also incorporate the new Unity Hexagonal design rear cover, seamlessly integrating sleek aesthetics with efficient cable management. The slim ‘L’ Stand, introduced this year, offers ergonomic benefits, stability and space-efficiency. Along with tilt-, height-, pivot-, and swivel-adjustability, the stand has a smaller footprint than 2023’s V-shaped stand, helping to free up space and increase desk usability. The stylish and functional stand also provides installation flexibility and contributes to the monitors’ unapologetically futuristic look.
      More Models to Meet Gamers’ Diverse Demands
      Along with the new 32-incher, and the 34- and 39-inch curved models, LG’s 2024 UltraGear OLED gaming monitor lineup welcomes two 45-inch monitors and a 27-inch monitor (models 45GS95QE, 45GS96QB and 27GS95QE). These upgraded versions of the highly acclaimed 45GR95QE and 27GR95QE further enhance the UltraGear family, delivering the exceptional gaming experience that LG’s premium gaming monitor brand is known for. With high refresh rates, fast response times and outstanding picture quality, these monitors meet the expectations of discerning consumers. Additionally, all three models are VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certified, offering high-brightness screens that produce deep blacks and enhance the depth and detail in darker game environments.
      A strong performer, the 45-inch 45GS96QB takes users deeper into their favorite games; its UltraWide QHD resolution curved (800R) OLED display and built-in speakers ensuring realistic visuals and sound. Meanwhile, the 27GS95QE is a great option for smaller spaces, providing a 27-inch flat screen OLED display with all the specifications and features needed for next-level gaming.
      “LG’s new lineup of UltraGear OLED gaming monitors elevates the gaming experience with groundbreaking technologies and a variety of sizes and form factors,” said YS Lee, vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “LG is dedicated to leading the gaming monitor segment and meeting gamers’ needs, designing innovative products that deliver a deeply satisfying visual and audio performance.”

      The laptop which has been on sale from the LG online shop has been advertised as a 2TB hard drive - seems there is a mistake on the web page and it's only 1TB - which was strikingly obvious when mine arrived. Seems LG hadn't spotted the cock up. 1hr45 on the phone to customer support and still not resolved

      Hi,
      it would be great if there was some kind of “percentage” slider or just adjusted power saving settings. Right now, there is too much difference between maximum and medium power saving mode - maximum is too dark and medium is too bright, with no way to be set between. Also difference between two brightest is not so much big.
      Second idea is to bring this setting somewhere closer (higher) in options. In my opinion, it might be the often changed setting by users. I use to change it regularly, especially between day and night.
