Digital Trends Media Group Announces Top Tech of CES 2021 Award Honorees

PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 13, 2021 — Digital Trends Media Group, the largest independent technology publisher, today announced its hotly anticipated list of Top Tech of CES 2021 Award honorees.

Best in Show, the program’s highest honor, went to the LG A-Series OLED TV. A streamlined, affordable version of LG’s excellent OLED display quality, the A-Series is accessible to families and those on a budget at a time when we all have less money and more couch time.

"People are going to love The LG A-Series. There were definitely splashier, more novel entries at CES 2021, and even fancier TVs, but our editorial staff is always looking for technology that will actually make a difference in the world. Considering the world we’re living in now, where people have a greater need than ever to escape while staying in the safety of our homes, making high-end entertainment accessible to the masses is truly an elegant stroke,” explains Jeremy Kaplan, Editor-in-Chief at Digital Trends.

"The LG A-Series TV fills a need. Good technology should be accessible and practical for everyone. This is a step towards equity and truly improving lives through technology, and that’s what Digital Trends is all about," says Caleb Denison, Senior Editor of Digital Trends.

CES, formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show, is the nation's biggest annual tech event, kicking off each new year by showcasing the best and most exciting upcoming innovations and gadgets before they hit markets. This was the first time in its 55-year history that the show was totally virtual, due to COVID-19 safety requirements.

In addition to the awards, Digital Trends created the CES Experience Center, the multimedia online portal through which attendees could access CES interviews, displays, updates, panels and more.
