The 65QNED80UQA is a 65 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit IPS panel.
It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important specification to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
LG has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess.
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 quality on this TV will be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut specification of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can produce.
In other words, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A TV with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, 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.
Next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.
Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as shown below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The static contrast ratio of above TV is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More the better.
Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio lets you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.
If given a choice, I will 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., good enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Edge LED (Local Dimming) technology.
If you aren't into gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, since 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 or mouse movements changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, look for 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 Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
