LG Electronics Inc.'s double-door refrigerator, the GSL360ICEV (Yonhap)
Electronics Inc. on Tuesday said its double-door refrigerator has scored high marks in evaluations from European industry trackers, proving the competitiveness of its products in the region.
The South Korean tech giant said one of its double-door refrigerators, the GSL360ICEV, received the highest grade among its rival products from British evaluator Which?, especially for the cooling speed, energy efficiency and temperature preservation.
Portugal-based Deco-Proteste also praised the product by awarding it the top grade in seven areas of 10 criteria, including energy efficiency and noise control, the company added LG's refrigerators were also cited as the best products in Germany, Spain and Italy earlier this year.
The good response can be traced to what it calls the Inverter Linear Compressor, which boasts improved energy efficiency compared with other products in the market. LG said it plans to apply the compressor on more models by the end of this year.
