ABOUT THIS TV

LG 55UQ81006LB 400x400 Image LG 55UQ81006LB

The 55UQ81006LB is a 55 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 8-bit IPS panel. It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important specification of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess. Considering 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 accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike! It is capable of producing accurate colors AS IT IS intended.

What Color Gamut means ?

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

A panel with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Now, next in the list that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

What is Static Contrast ratio ?

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that may look dusty as shown in the below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you see, this will affect your experience considerably.

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, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

LG did not list a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Again we have to take a guess. Most IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. As for a 4K TV, we can imagine the ratio of LG 55UQ81006LB to be >= 1200:1.

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

As for brightness, the peak luminance the TV can achieve is 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. But since this is not a cheap TV from LG, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input lag ?

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

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

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, 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 300 x 300 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 48.62 inches and 30.98 inches respectively.

It is 2.26 inches thick. It weighs approximately 14.0 kilograms and an additional 1.4 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.
