ABOUT THIS TV

LG 55UQ70006LB 400x400 Image LG 55UQ70006LB

The 55UQ70006LB is a 55 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 8-bit IPS panel. It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next most important spec to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.

LG did not provide a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess. Now, since the TV features a big 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 quality on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce accurate colors AS IT IS intended.

What Color Gamut means ?

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

A display with poor color accuracy 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, DCI P3 etc. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

Why its important?

The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Also, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

Needless to say, this will rob your experience, especially in a dark room.

Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, so 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.

LG did not specify static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Again we have to make an assumption. In general, IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Now, for a 4K TV, we can imagine the ratio of LG 55UQ70006LB to be on the upper side, that is atleast 1200:1.

HDR10 Pro and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV.

As for brightness, it is can achieve a maximum luminance of 250 nits, powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are planning to use a TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, make sure to get a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time impacts the performance.

Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But since this is not a cheap TV from LG, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

Understanding Input lag and response time

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

Although for better experience, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Speaking of 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 300 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 48.66 inches and 30.87 inches respectively.

Speaking of thickness, it is just 3.54 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 11.2 kilograms and 0.2 kgs extra if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Hardware and Audio

The LG 55UQ70006LB comes with a 4-Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any specification about the total RAM on this TV.

The UI on this TV is powered by webOS 22 Operating System.

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

To connect USB devices, you will have one USB 2.0 port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x CI+ 2.0 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Wireless connectivity options on this TV include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.

For audio, it is packaged with 2 x 10W speakers.

Now, coming to power consumption, the TV consumes 102 Watts on average and 0.5 Watts on standby.

It supports a power outlet of 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz.
