The 75QNED816QA is a 75 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit IPS panel.
It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 59 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important feature to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess. Considering the TV features amassive 75 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! Meaning it will produce accurate colors AS IT IS intended.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the display can produce.
A panel with poor color accuracy will produce washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 etc. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, here 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 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 can 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. Ofcourse, More the better.
Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio lets you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.
HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10 and HDR10 Pro are also supported on this TV.
Coming to brightness, it is can achieve a peak brightness of 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Edge LED (Local Dimming) backlight.
If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the latency at which your device inputs changes the content of your TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
Although for better experience, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
