ABOUT THIS TV

The 55UQ80006LB is a 55 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 8-bit IPS panel. It can achieve 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 important feature of a display that defines picture quality is Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.

As this 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. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce accurate colors.

What Color Gamut means ?

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

Put Simply, it determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

Different manufacturers use different units to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.

But you don't need to worry about that, below 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 specification of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

Understanding Static Contrast

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

Backlight bleed exampleThe 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.

Also, a TV with high constrast ratio enables you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.

LG did not state a static contrast specification for this TV. Again we have to make an assumption based on the TV's other specs. 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 55UQ80006LB would be atleast 1200:1 or above.

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

Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.

Gaming Performance

If you aren't interested in gaming, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. But as this is not a cheap TV, 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/mouse movements changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 48.62 inches while its height is 30.55 inches.

It is 2.26 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 14.0 KGs and 0.2 kgs extra if you include stand. 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 400 x 400 mm. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.
