ABOUT THIS TV

LG 55QNED85UQA 400x400 Image LG 55QNED85UQA

The 55QNED85UQA is a 55 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit IPS panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.

LG has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that. As this TV features a 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. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images AS IT IS intended.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the TV can show.

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

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), 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.

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ?

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and may bleed backlight as shown in the images below:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The static contrast ratio of above TV is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More the better.

Also, 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, thus lesser detail overall.

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

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

Dolby Vision, HDR10 Pro, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision IQ are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Mini LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, 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, you would want to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. But as this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which inputs changes the content of your display. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

Although for better experience, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 300 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The TV measures 55 inches vertically and 48.54 inches horizontally. It is 1.79 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 19.5 KGs, another 0.7 kgs if you include stand.

Hardware and Audio

The LG 55QNED85UQA is powered by Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any info about the RAM on the TV's specsheet.

Speaking of OS, the LG 55QNED85UQA runs webOS 22 Operating System.

For display connectivity, LG has provided 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), 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.

Now, for audio, it is packaged with 2 x 10W speakers. It also comes with a built-in sub-woofer. So you don't have to invest on an external sound system.
