ABOUT THIS TV

LG 50NANO829QB 400x400 Image LG 50NANO829QB

The 50NANO829QB is a 50 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel. It can display a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display that will impact your viewing experience 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 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. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce accurate colors by default.

Understanding Color Gamut

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

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

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it impacts the picture quality substantially.

Understanding the static contrast specification

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 dusty as shown in below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you see, this will impact 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.

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to produce deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

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

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Edge LED (Local Dimming).

Gaming Performance

If you aren't interested in gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, as this is not a cheap TV, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions
