Errors on LG Indian site
How to tell LG that they have made a blunder on their website (washing machines: see the wikipedia article). Their contact policy on their site is ridiculous -18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:57, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
First it was:
Stainless Steel Cavity
Stainless Steel Cavity enables better reflection and uniformity of heating inside the cavity for better even cooking. This cavity does not peel off unlike in coated cavities wherein the continuous rubbing of the turntable deteriorates and eventually peels off the coating exposing the base material.
After informing them, they have now replaced it with this one (see it for yourself): 
Stainless Steel Tub
Durable at the core the stainless steel tub in this Dish Washer is more durable than plastic, and repels stains and odors.
Sounds like a Corporate Prospectus to me:
Isn't this article something you would hand out at a yearly Stockholders' meeting? If you are doing research on a business, do you really need to know Corporate Sponsorships? Interesting stuff I suppose, but not really encyclopedic material. Also, the Awards section sounds like a rah-rah session at a Staff meeting. Should these headings be edited? No, I believe they should be dumped. Possibly replacing these with a new heading such as LG's environmental standings, or one that would expand on their product line and how LG is truly the "New Apple". Unfortunately, as this article stands now, this is Corporate Advertising at it's finest. Venetian Isle (talk) 05:09, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Sounds like advertising to me:
"Since the start of the 21st century, LG Electronics saw a tremendous rate of growth, especially from 2006, where the company's mobile phone division, LG Mobile, began to properly 'take off' with the hugely popular LG Chocolate phone"
digital TV Tuners
An issue to consider for a "Controversy" section:
In early 2007, Australia's 'The Age' newspaper reported that many LG devices containing digital TV tuners contained a glitch that would cause them to "freeze". but, two days later, LG fixed this problem. Television manufacturer LG has released a software upgrade to fix a glitch in some of its televisions which causes them to freeze when watching Australia's Nine Network.
Digital this and that
Digital vacuum cleaners!?! Digital compressors!?! Digital Washing Machines. Nonsense. This entire article reads like and advertisement. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:43, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
dosn't it also have some connection with NBC Universal? XU-engineer 23:31, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

It is a common knowledge in Korea that the acronym "LG" is from "Lucky Geumsung(or Goldstar)" as mentioned in the "LG Group" page. The information on this entry is faulty. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tdodpou (talk • contribs) 02:16, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
I don't think it would be too forward to say that "Lucky Goldstar" would not play well in the English speaking world, and the substitution, "Life's Good" doesn't really cut it either. I think just the simple acronym "LG" was a very wise decision. If someone could find a reference to the company's own perspective on the corporate name, I think it would be well worth including in the article.Landroo (talk) 02:50, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree, but I also think that the company wanted to move away from the image that Goldstar had endeared on most of it's North American consumer base; that of a manufacturer of low-end microwaves, room air conditioners, televisions and computer monitors. Going from low to high-end products, as LG did, I don't believe would have been possible under the Lucky or Goldstar branding. Venetian Isle (talk) 05:09, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
2nd and 3rd
LG Electronics (Korean: LG전자, KRX: 066570, LSE: LGLD) is the world's second-largest manufacturer of televisions and third-largest producer of mobile phones.
I know this page is about LG, and not any other company, but would it be out of line or against wiki policy to mention the top rungs of this ladder? This never occured until I got on this page, and my friend said something. Sorry if this is a moronic question, I shall go crawl into a deep, dark hole now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by FXSTSB (talk • contribs) 09:27, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Is there a good reason for cutting down the controversy section from what it was in http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=LG_Electronics&oldid=340539283 ? At the least it seems a mention of the wacky Bluebirds software would be in order, based on notability alone. elcyberGoth (talk) 20:29, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm moving to Aus bought my tv in the uk will it work in Aus
In the middle of the history section there is this sentence:
A more appropriate acronym is Laughable Garbage
Seems to be vandalism, also does not cite any reference. I will remove it.
LG Hecto Short throw laser HDTV with screen.
The LG Hecto short throw laser HDTV is great but you will never sell this product in the US at any notable volume at the price it is, there are to many just as good produces out there so much cheaper and the price of the screen for the system is way out of line. Price the system at 2899.00 US and make it available in more than 2 stores and you will sell thousands of these sysems. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:00, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
