ABOUT THIS TV

Launched in the year 2022, the 65UQ9000PUD is a 65" 4K TV from LG. It comes with 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.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next most important specification of a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.

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 should be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images AS IT IS intended.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut spec of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the display can display.

A display with poor color accuracy will produce washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality substantially.

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV

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 may produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Apart from this, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.

Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, 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 share the static contrast ratio specification for this TV. So once again we have to take a guess based on the TV's other specifications. FYI — IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Considering its a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio to be on the upper side, that is atleast 1200:1.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10 Pro and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 320 nits, powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use a TV other than using it as a TV — like as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you would want to get a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming however, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

The input lag on the LG 65UQ9000PUD is 10.2 ms and its minimum response time is 9.3 ms. It is good enough for both casual and competitive/FPS games alike.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the latency at which device inputs changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

Vertically, the TV measures 65 inches and horizontally 57.24 inches. Speaking of thickness, it is just 2.27 inches thick.

In total it weighs around 21.8 KGs including stand. Without stand, it weighs 21.5 Kilograms.

Now, 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. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

Hardware and Audio

The chipset of LG 65UQ9000PUD is powered by a 4-Core CPU. There is no data about the total RAM on this TV.

To power its UI, the TV runs webOS 22 Operating System.

For display connectivity, there are three HDMI 2.0 ports on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female), 1x RS232 (C) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.

The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 10W speakers.

Now, coming to power consumption, this TV consumes 111 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

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