Launched in the year 2022, the 75QNED969QA is a 75" 8K TV from LG. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel.
It can achieve a maximum resolution of 7680 x 4320 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 118 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important specification to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
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 a big 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. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike! Meaning it is capable of producing color accurate images out of the box.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that the display can produce.
A display with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 etc.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Next in the list of important specifications is Static Contrast.
Understanding Static Contrast
The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Needless to say, this will rob your experience, especially in a dark room.
Also, a TV with high constrast ratio enables you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.
If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., enough to achieve deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming which is a plus.
Dolby Vision, HDR10 Pro, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision IQ are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
As for brightness, it is can achieve a maximum brightness of 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Mini LED.
If you are not into 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 take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, LG did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, as 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 key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
But ideally, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Speaking of 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 400 x 400 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
The width of this TV is 65.55 inches while its height is 40.63 inches. In terms of thickness, it is just 1.14 inches thick.
In total this TV weighs 41.3 Kgs including stand. Without stand, it weighs 37.9 Kilograms. So plan your space accordingly.
