August 19, 2005 There’s something distinctly nouveau riche about the new limited edition jewel encrusted DIOS refrigerator from LG. Aimed at the Taiwanese market, the R-U719GWN three door refrigerator has all the usual LG high tech domestic wizardry such as an ice-maker and LCD panel, but comes with an extra helping of bling in that it has several inlays of Swarovski crystals – 4900 of them. What we can’t quite understand is why it’s so cheap - KRW 3,990,000.00 – approximately US$3900. Perhaps there’s a discount for being so over the top.
