LG vs. Toshiba. Which to buy? - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Newer? LG has been around since the 50s. I still have a dehumidifier from the 80s that says Lucky Goldstar.

Anyway I bought the TV

That's what you're supposed to believe by Acer's new marketing campaign LG is nothing more than a new brand name for Acer designed to sound more "hip" and "trendy" to draw more market share from the younger generation. It sounds like it's working!

To answer the original poster, my vote goes to Toshiba. In my opinion, samsung has the best picture quality for smaller lcds and toshiba holds the crown on the larger ones.

Can you show me a source saying LG and Acer are the same company?

"LG Group is a large South Korean conglomerate (chaebol), which produces electronics, mobile phones, and petrochemical products and operates subsidiaries like LG Electronics operating in over 80 countries. Created in 1947, it assumed the abbreviated name of "LG" in 1995."

I'm not saying you're definitely wrong, I've just never heard anything close to that.

You haven't heard that because it's not true I just reread this thread and realized we're discussing LG....not HG. Disregard my above posts as I was thinking Hans G or HG. LG is an entirely different entity. Sorry for any confusion.

Acer is based in Taiwan. LG is based in Korea. Two very different companies.
