Launched in the year 2022, the 65QNED919QA is a 65" 4K TV from LG. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel. It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 68 ppi.
Now, the very next specification of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.
LG has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess. As this TV features amassive 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 AS IT IS intended.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that the display can produce.
A panel with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC, DCI P3 etc.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing 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 of a TV
The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Apart from this, such displays are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Needless to say, this will rob your viewing experience, especially in a dark room.
Also, 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.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to achieve deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.
Dolby Vision, HDR10 Pro, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision IQ are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
As for brightness, the peak brightness it can produce is 250 nits, which is powered by Mini LED backlight.
If you aren't into gaming, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take 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, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
For best of both worlds, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The width of this TV is 56.85 inches while its height is 35.51 inches. In terms of thickness, it is just 1.18 inches thick.
In total it weighs 28.6 kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 26.9 Kilograms.
Speaking of 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 on this TV.
Hardware and Audio
