The 65UQ80006LB is a 65 inch 4K TV from LG. It was launched in 2022. It features a True 8-bit IPS panel.
It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
LG did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess.
Now, since the TV features a big 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. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! It is capable of producing accurate colors out of the box.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the display can show.
A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast specification
Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (less than 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
This will rob your viewing experience considerably, especially in a dark room.
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.
We couldn't find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. So we have to make an assumption again based on the TV's other specs. Most IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Now, for a 4K TV, we can guess the ratio would be >= 1200:1.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10 Pro and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
As for brightness, the peak luminance the LG 65UQ80006LB can produce is 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.
If you are not interested in gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But as 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 amount of time at which device inputs changes the content of your display. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
For best of both worlds, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
