ABOUT THIS TV

LG 86QNED99UQA 400x400 Image LG 86QNED99UQA

The 86QNED99UQA is a 86 inch 8K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit IPS panel.

The max. resolution it can achieve is 7680 x 4320 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type. Now, since the TV features a big 86 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 quality on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it is capable of producing color accurate images out of the box.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can produce.

What this means is, it tells the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

Different manufacturers use different units to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

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

Understanding Static Contrast

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that will look dusty as shown in the below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can see, this will impact your experience considerably.

Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., good enough to achieve deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

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

Coming to brightness, the peak luminance the LG 86QNED99UQA can produce is 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Mini LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use the TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or Gaming, make sure to get a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time impacts the performance.

Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the latency at which your 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 features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 600 x 400 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

Vertically, the TV measures 86 inches and horizontally 75.47 inches. It is 1.18 inches thick.

It weighs around 55.4 Kgs and an additional 3.8 kgs including stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Hardware and Audio

The TV comes with a Quad Core CPU. There is no mention on the RAM on this TV.

Speaking of OS, the LG 86QNED99UQA runs webOS 22 Operating System.

For display connectivity, LG has provided four HDMI 2.1 ports on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, you have — 2x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0. Other connectivity ports include — 1x IR Out, 1x RS232 (C), 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Wireless connectivity options on the LG 86QNED99UQA include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.

Now, speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 4 x 10W speakers. It also comes with a built-in sub-woofer. So you don't have to invest on an external sound system.
