The 65QNED90UQA is a 65 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It comes with 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.
Now, the very next spec of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.
LG did not provide a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.
Considering the 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 should be Lifelike! It is capable of producing accurate colors out of the box.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut specification of a TV indicates the range of colors that the TV can show.
A TV with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will not be pretty to look at.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.
But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.
Understanding the static contrast ratio
There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.
This specification defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio < 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:
Moreover, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Also note, 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, so lesser detail overall.
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., good enough to display deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HDR10 Pro, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision IQ.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Mini LED technology.
If you are not into gaming, you can safely 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.
Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, 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.
But ideally, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 56.85 inches and 35.43 inches respectively. It is 1.18 inches thick. In total, it weighs approximately 26.9 kilograms.
Speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.
Hardware and Audio
The TV is powered by Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any information on the total RAM on the TV's official specsheet.
The UI on this TV is powered by webOS 22 Operating System.
For display connectivity, LG has provided two HDMI 2.0 ports and two HDMI 2.1 ports on this TV.
For connecting USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x RS232 (C), 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
Wireless connectivity options on this TV include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.
The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 10W speakers. It also comes with a built-in sub-woofer. So you don't have to invest on any external sound system.
