ABOUT THIS TV

LG 50NANO786QA 400x400 Image LG 50NANO786QA

The 50NANO786QA is a 50 inch 4K TV from LG. It was launched in 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel.

The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important feature of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.

LG did not provide a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.

Considering the TV features a big 50 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike! It will produce accurate colors AS IT IS intended.

What is Color gamut ?

Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that it can display.

A display with poor color accuracy will produce washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Viz — 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

Next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Why its important?

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

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can imagine, this will impact your experience considerably.

Note that, 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.

There is no mention of this specification in this TV's official datasheet. So 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 So that's a plus.

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. The panel of this TV is powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are not planning to game on this TV, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from LG, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

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

For best of both worlds, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

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.

The width of this TV is 44.13 inches while its height is 27.64 inches.

It is just 2.27 inches thick.

Overall this TV weighs around 13.7 kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 12.6 KGs.
