Launched in the year 2022, the 65QNED806QA is a 65" 4K TV from LG. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel.
The maximum resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).
This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.
As this TV features a 65 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.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can produce.
Put Simply, it indicates 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), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
Understanding the 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 might look dusty as shown in the below image.
As you can imagine, this will affect your experience considerably.
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 in a sense.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10.
As for brightness, the peak luminance the TV can produce is 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Edge LED (Local Dimming) technology.
Now if you are going to use your TV other than using it as a TV — say as a PC monitor or Gaming, make sure to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time affects the performance.
Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, as 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 device inputs changes the content of your display. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
Although for better experience, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 300 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 57.2 inches and 35.7 inches respectively.

It weighs 24.49 Kgs and 0.41 kgs extra including stand. So plan your space accordingly.
