ABOUT THIS TV

LG 65UQ81006LB 400x400 Image LG 65UQ81006LB

Launched in the year 2022, the 65UQ81006LB is a 65" 4K TV from LG. It comes with a True 8-bit IPS panel.

The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the very next specification of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

LG has not provided a color gamut specification 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. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce color accurate images.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that the display can produce.

In other words, it tells 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,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.

Understanding the static contrast specification

There are 2 types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.

This defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio < 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Moreover, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will rob your experience — as shown below.

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, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

LG did not state a static contrast specification for this TV. So we have to make an assumption again. FYI — IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. For a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio of LG 65UQ81006LB would be no less than 1200:1.

HDR10 Pro and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV.

As for brightness, the peak brightness the LG 65UQ81006LB can produce is 250 nits, powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are going to use a TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, you should take a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming however, both the input lag and response time affects the performance.

Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from LG, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which your device inputs changes the content of your display. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 57.24 inches and 35.79 inches respectively.

It is just 2.27 inches thick. Overall the TV weighs around 22.9 kgs (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 21.5 KGs. So plan your space accordingly.

Coming to 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 300 x 300 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

Hardware and Audio

The LG 65UQ81006LB comes with a Quad Core CPU. There is no information on the available 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 three HDMI 2.0 ports on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x CI+ 2.0 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For wireless connections, you will have — Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.

Speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 2 x 10W speakers.

Now, coming to power consumption, on average, it consumes around 100W. On standby, it takes 0.5 W.

For powering this unit, you will require an 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
