Launched in the year 2022, the 65UQ91006LA is a 65" 4K TV from LG. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel. The maximum resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 68 ppi.
Now, the next important feature of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.
LG has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.
Now, since the 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 will be Lifelike! It is capable of producing accurate colors out of the box.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut spec of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that it can produce.
A TV with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast ratio of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly bleed backlight as below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The static contrast ratio of above TV is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More is better.
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.
LG did not share the static contrast specification for this TV. So we have to make an assumption again based on the TV's other specifications. In general, IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. As for a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio of LG 65UQ91006LA would be no less than 1200:1.
HDR10 Pro and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
As for brightness, it is can produce a maximum brightness of 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED technology.
If you are not interested in 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, make sure to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. But 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 device inputs changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 65 inches vertically and 57.24 inches horizontally.
Coming to thickness, it is just 2.27 inches thick. It weighs approximately 21.5 kilograms, another 1.4 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.
