CES 2023

Thanks to Zero Connect

What’s an elegant giant TV mounted on a wall when there are wires and cables that become an eyesore?

Well, LG’s 97-inch OLED TV M3 has an innovative new solution that will solve such aesthetic worry, so much so that the feature has won two honors at the CES 2023 Innovation Awards.

The TV’s wireless solution called Zero Connect technology allows users to transmit up to 4K 120Hz audiovisuals for a distraction-free setup.

The magic starts with the Zero Connect box which wirelessly transmits media onto the massive screen — latency-free.

This aptly complements the cutting-edge TV’s minimalist One Wall design so that it would blend effortlessly on any living room or interior décor.

Aside from that, the portable box comes with multiple ports for plugging in commonly used HDMI devices, such as cable/satellite set-top boxes and gaming consoles. It also connects wirelessly any compatible soundbar.

Should you opt for a more traditional “plug-and-play” approach without minding the look, the box also has ports for that.

Samsung Soundbar and Lifestyle TV

A good TV needs a good soundbar to match



So, you got a Samsung Lifestyle TV for your fancy place. It’s nice. It’s pretty. And is just really clean. But do you have the right Soundbar to match?

Seeing as this is a Samsung Serif TV. It can’t just be any other chunky soundbar. Thankfully, Samsung also made one that fits perfectly alongside its lifestyle TVs. This is the HW-S801B. Also known as the Samsung Lifestyle Soundbar.

It’s engineered by innovation experts at the Samsung Audio Lab in California, applying advanced technology to deliver perfectly balanced, room-filling sound. For brevity, we’re just gonna call it the lifestyle soundbar from here on out.

Much like Samsung’s TVs, it has a unique blend of pristine performance and minimalist aesthetics. You get all the usual soundbar benefits in a package that fits the TV like a glove.

But before everything else… Here’s everything that’s included in the box.


Sleek and sexy

The very first noticeable thing is how relatively thinner and lighter it is compared to regular soundbars. It’s only 1.5 inches deep and 1.6 inches tall. This lifestyle soundbar is small enough both for wall mounting or just resting on a TV stand. It comes in white which is a nice touch.

The soundbar complements everything about the Serif. In our review, we said the Serif has… “An allure that you can only experience when you’re graced by its perennial beauty… it makes you fall in love with it, with yourself, and with the life you’re living.”

This Samsung lifestyle soundbar gives off the exact same vibe. And that’s just talking about its looks.

Great sound

Naturally, this soundbar wouldn’t be worth its salt if it doesn’t deliver on the audio side of things. It has a 10-speaker, 3.1.2Ch setup. This means you have two upfiring speakers: one on the left and one on the right.

This Dolby Atmos setup makes you feel as if you’re in the middle of whatever it is you’re actually watching. And the experience expands should you decide to add more speakers other than the soundbar and included subwoofer.

Did you know? Samsung is actually the first to bring built-in wireless Dolby Atmos Connection. Another Fun fact: It works with DTS Virtual: X too so you get that 3D surround sound effect.

But what takes the cake is a feature called Q Symphony. This lets you use both the lifestyle soundbar and the TV speaker at the same time which will infinitely elevate your viewing experience.

Plug and play

Connecting this lifestyle soundbar is also easy. It comes with a micro HDMI to HDMI cable that you simply need to hook up to your Samsung TV. You can also connect via WIFI or Bluetooth. It also has a remote control for easier operation.

What’s more, you can use AirPlay or Chromecast on your smartphone to play music or simply use Tap Sound to connect your Samsung smartphone to the Soundbar So, you don’t need to turn the TV on to enjoy great sound.

The perfect match

With its looks and its sound, you’ll inevitably fall for the Lifestyle Soundbar twice. It has everything from a sleek and sexy look to match any TV to a fantastic audio output and features to elevate your entertainment experience.

If you value style in your entertainment setup, this Samsung Lifestyle Soundbaris the one for you. Check it out today at or at any authorized Samsung dealer.

This feature is a collaboration between GadgetMatch and Samsung TV.

IFA 2022

LG Styler ShoeCase is a new way to show off your kicks

Plus, ShoeCare to clean your shoes



Sneakerheads! If you’re just letting your shoes sit on a wooden shelf, you haven’t heard of a new way to show off your kicks. During IFA Berlin 2022, LG has unveiled a duo of smart furniture to keep your favorite shoes spiffy and sparkling — the LG Styler ShoeCase and ShoeCare.

Showing off is the name of the game. As what every sneakerhead might enjoy, the LG Styler ShoeCase keeps every piece of footwear front and center. Each case comes with a transparent panel that protects shoes from humidity and harmful UV light. Also, they come with a rotating turntable for when you have guests over. Users can also stack (and show off) four cases on top of each other.

Now, if you want to take your shoes for a spin (off the turntable, of course), the LG Styler ShoeCare keeps your footwear fresh and clean. The TrueSteam technology refreshes each shoe regardless of material — leather, suede, or sports. Meanwhile, the Zeo-Dry zeolite filter absorbs moisture and smells.

Height isn’t an issue either; the multiple moving nozzles adjusts the cleaning job according to the shoe’s height. Plus, the Dual Care System can clean two shoes with different materials at the same time. However, all in all, the ShoeCare can clean up to four shoes in only 37 minutes.

As with LG’s other devices, users can control the LG Styler ShoeCase and ShoeCare using the ThinQ app.

LG has not announced when the duo will come to markets. Currently, the company is still displaying the furniture during IFA Berlin 2022, along with other lifestyle devices.
