ABOUT THIS TV

LG OLED42C29LB 400x400 Image LG OLED42C29LB

The OLED42C29LB is a 42 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit OLED evo panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 106 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important spec of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.As the TV features an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. OLED panels ALWAYS come with over 100% sRGB coverage.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

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

A TV with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will not be pretty to look at.

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), 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

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ?

Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

This will rob your experience considerably, especially in a dark room.

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 in a sense.

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

Given this TV comes with an OLED panel, its static constrast should be Infinity : 1. So no need to worry about this.

HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10 Pro are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

As for brightness, the peak luminance the LG OLED42C29LB can achieve is 250 nits.

Gaming Performance

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 playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on the LG OLED42C29LB is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. Pick this one if you are a gamer.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which your key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

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

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 300 x 200 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Vertically, the TV measures 42 inches and horizontally 36.69 inches. Speaking of thickness, it is 1.62 inches thick. In total the TV weighs approximately 9.3 Kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 9.0 Kilograms.

Hardware and Audio
