ABOUT THIS TV

LG 43NANO786QA 400x400 Image LG 43NANO786QA

The 43NANO786QA is a 43 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important spec of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that.

Considering the TV comes with a 10bit VA panel, we can safely assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 100% or above. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike!

What is Color gamut ?

Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the TV can show.

Put Simply, this specification tells the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose 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 2 types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.

Static contrast specification defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Note that, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.

Also, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

We couldn't find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Once again we have to take a guess. For a TV with VA panel, the static contrast ratio will surely atleast be 3000:1 or above.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10 Pro and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).

As for brightness, it is can achieve a peak brightness of 250 nits, powered by Direct LED backlight technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use the TV other than using it as a TV — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming however, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

Unfortunately, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. But since this is not a cheap TV, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

But ideally, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The TV measures 43 inches vertically and 38 inches horizontally. It is 2.27 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 9.2 KGs and an additional 1.1 kgs if you include stand.

Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 200 x 200 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Hardware and Audio

The LG 43NANO786QA is powered by 4-Core CPU. However, LG didn't provide any specification about the RAM on the TV's official specsheet.

Speaking of OS, the LG 43NANO786QA runs webOS 22 Operating System.

For display connectivity, LG has provided three HDMI 2.0 ports on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x CI+ 2.0 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Wireless connectivity options on this TV include a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.

Speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 2 x 10W built-in speakers.

Now, coming to power consumption, on average, this TV uses 54 watts. On standby, it takes 0.5 watts.

For powering this unit, you'll need either a 110V or 220V outlet @ 50Hz-60Hz.
