The 55NANO776QA is a 55 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel.
It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 80 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.
This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that.
Now, since the TV features amassive 55 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 accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce accurate colors out of the box.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can produce.
A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will not be pretty to look at.
Different manufacturers use different units to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.
Why its important?
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as shown below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The above TV's static contrast is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More is better.
Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio allows you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.
LG did not define static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Again we have to take a guess based on the TV's other specs. The static contrast ratio of this TV would be surely atleast 3000:1. the static contrast ratios of VA panels range between 3000:1 - 8000:1.
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 Direct LED.
If you aren't interested in gaming, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. 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/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.
For best of both worlds, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The width of this TV is 48.62 inches while its height is 30.47 inches. Coming to thickness, it is just 2.29 inches thick. Overall it weighs approximately 14.8 kgs (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 14.6 kgs.
