ABOUT THIS TV

LG 50QNED80UQA 400x400 Image LG 50QNED80UQA

The 50QNED80UQA is a 50 inch 4K TV from LG. It was launched in 2022. It features a True 10-bit VA panel. The maximum resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important feature of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that. As this TV features a 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 should be Lifelike! It will produce accurate colors.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can produce.

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

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

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

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

Understanding Static Contrast

There are 2 types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.

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

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Apart from that, such TVs are also prone backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.

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.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to produce deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.

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

Coming to brightness, it is can produce a maximum brightness of 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Edge LED (Local Dimming) technology.

Gaming Performance

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

Sadly, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. But as 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 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.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 44.1 inches while its height is 28.3 inches.

It is 1.9 inches thick.

Overall the TV weighs approximately 14.38 kgs (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 14.02 Kgs. So plan your space accordingly.

Coming to ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the TV, you can make use of the VESA mount provided with this TV, which by the way has an interface size of 200 x 200 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Hardware and Audio

The core of this TV is powered by a Quad Core CPU. There is no data on the total RAM on this TV.

To power its UI, the TV runs webOS 22 Operating System.

For display connectivity, there are two HDMI 2.0 ports and two HDMI 2.1 ports on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x RS232 (C — mini jack), 1x Cable/Antenna In (Main — F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Regarding wireless connections, the manufacturer has provided a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.

Now, for audio, LG has provided 2 x 10W speakers on the 50QNED80UQA.

In terms of power consumption, the TV uses 50.4 Watts on average and 0.5 Watts on standby.

For powering this unit, you will require an 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
