Last November, LG Electronics launched the LG LH-C643 home theatre system. Noted for being decorated with 24-carat gold, it's perfect for those who fear that their guests might somehow miss the 71-inch HD plasma telly, said then to be the biggest of its kind in the world. The gold was a wise move on the part of LG, because it was barely two months later when they were pipped for the title of World's Largest Plasma Display Panel TV by Samsung's 80-inch monstrosity, the HPR8072 , which comes only in boring old black. The LH-C643 costs a cool 80 million won.
If you prefer a piece of bling you can carry around with you, opt for the limited edition Samsung Yepp YP-W3 1GB MP3 player. Shaped like a pocket watch, it features scratch-resistant sapphire glass and a white gold plated exterior studded with diamonds. A bargain at 900,000 won.
