EFTM Best of CES: 2017 Awards for our picks from CES

our picks from the biggest tech show in the world

With thousands of companies and tens of thousands of products it’s impossible for any one person or even one media organisation to see or even hear about ever single product at the show.  But for those many hundreds of things we do see – EFTM has chosen to award thirteen of our EFTM Best awards for CES.

The team have known the categories for some time, and over the first few days of the event gave careful consideration to each award category to see what great things stick out in our minds for the awards.  Here are our winners:

Best of Best : LG Signature OLED W Series

This thing is insane, but it’s real – that’s what makes it so great.  A TV that’s 2.57mm thin and when wall mounted it’s 4mm – crazy.  You’ve gotta see it.
