The 32LQ63006LA is a 32 inch Full HD TV from LG. It was launched in 2022. It comes with a True 8-bit VA panel.
The max. resolution it can display is 1920 x 1080 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 70 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the very next feature of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.
LG did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.
Considering it is a budget TV and comes with a VA panel, it can be assumed that its equivalent sRGB coverage would be 65% or below. Translating that to color quality, it should be acceptable for content consumption. Moreover, you can't really complain considering the price point.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut spec of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can display.
A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV
There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.
This tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Note that, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
We couldn't find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. So once again we have to take a guess based on the TV's other specifications. For a TV with VA panel, the static contrast ratio will surely atleast be 3000:1 or above — VA panels are known for that.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HDR10 Pro (2K) and HLG (2K).
As for brightness, it is can achieve a peak luminance of 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED technology.
If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, VA panels in general are known for high input lags and response times. So, expect the input lag to be greater than 20ms. Though, Non-FPS and casual games should be playable.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency at which your device inputs changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 200 x 200 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 28.98 inches and 18.27 inches respectively.
It is 3.26 inches thick.
It weighs 4.65 kgs and an additional 0 kgs including stand. So plan your space accordingly.
Hardware and Audio

To connect USB devices, it includes one USB 2.0 port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x S-Video (F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x CI+ 1.4 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct and Bluetooth 5.0.
The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 5W built-in speakers.
