LG Gives Tailgaters A Reason To Stay In The Parking Lot
With the NFL 2023 season right around the corner, LG Electronics USA this week announced the ultimate tailgaters’ toy — a TV in a suitcase.
The LG StanbyME Go 27-inch portable LED LCD touch screen with Full HD (1080p) resolution is billed as an all-in-one take-anywhere TV option. Carrying a suggested retail of $999.99, the unit comes with its own suitcase with a built-in battery and speakers.
LG calls StanbyME Go “the ideal travel companion” and it will be available later this month from the LG.com web site. If you hurry, LG is even providing a special preorder offer including a free LG XBOOM 360 Bluetooth Speaker model XO3QBE ($299.99 suggested retail) with the purchase.
The LG StanbyME Go 1080p LED LCD touch screen (60Hz native refresh rate) is attached to a stand within its sleek carrying case. LG said the screen can be tilted, rotated, raised and lowered while in landscape and portrait orientations and table mode.
Sound is supported via a built-in 20-watt speaker and the output adapts to the screen’s orientation. Support for Dolby Atmos is even included to expand the stereo sound stage. You can even pair wireless earbuds (including those with aptX support) in areas where the surrounding noise level is too high.
LG said the 27-inch FHD display also includes support for Dolby Vision dynamic HDR.
LG said the StanbyME Go’s case features interior compartments to hold accessories.
The battery built into the case supports up to three hours of viewing time between charges. The entertainment pack is designed for portable streaming of movies, music and games on the go. Of course, LG builds in its webOS smart TV OS software and also provides support for AirPlay and Andoird device screen mirroring for access to those curcial NFL contests from supporting services where available and team-oriented YouTube content creators.
It also supports pairing via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Users can even control the unit operation hands-free with StanbyME Go’s voice recognition functionality.
“Content viewing is no longer confined to the living room or even the home, but until now, consumers have had to sacrifice screen size in favor of portability,” said David Park, Head of HE Product Marketing. “LG StanbyME Go makes the full-scale viewing experience travel-friendly and offers a versatile option for streaming, listening, remote working and more.”
LG said those who preorder the StanbyME Go and LG XBOOM 360 Bluetooth Speaker via LG.com through Aug. 27th will also receive $249.99 instant additional savings off of the pre-tax sale price.
“Savings will be reflected in the cart when all offer requirements are met. Preorders estimated to start shipping the week of Aug.28, 2023 and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Items may ship separately,” according to the announcement disclaimer.
