ABOUT THIS TV

LG 43UQ9000PUD 400x400 Image LG 43UQ9000PUD

Launched in the year 2022, the 43UQ9000PUD is a 43" 4K TV from LG. It comes with a True 8-bit IPS panel. It can achieve a maximum resolution of 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 its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.

This unit comes with an IPS panel. Now, IPS panels are known to produce great colors. So we can assume the sRGB coverage (equivalent) on this TV to be 70% or above. For content viewing and gaming purposes, you may not need any better than this anyway. So its good enough.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that it can display.

A TV with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast specification of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

Understanding the static contrast specification

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that may look muddy as shown below.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you see, this will rob your experience considerably.

Also note, 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 show both dark gray and black as black, thus lesser detail overall.

LG did not specify static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Again we have to make an assumption based on the TV's other specifications. Most IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Now, for a 4K TV, we can guess the ratio would be no less than 1200:1.

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

Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits with the help of Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are going to use a TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time impacts the performance.

Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from LG, 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 screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

For best of both worlds, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 200 x 200 mm. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

The TV measures 43 inches vertically and 38 inches horizontally.

It is 2.25 inches thick. In total this TV weighs 8.9 KGs including stand. Without stand, it weighs 8.8 KGs.

Hardware and Audio

The internals of LG 43UQ9000PUD is powered by Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any information about the available RAM on the TV's official specsheet.

The UI on this TV is powered by webOS 22 Operating System.

For display connectivity, there are three HDMI 2.0 ports on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, it includes two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female), 1x RS232 (C) 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.

Now, for audio, it is packaged with 2 x 10W built-in speakers.

In terms of power usage, this TV uses 53 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

For powering this unit, you will require an 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
