ABOUT THIS TV

LG OLED48A29LA 400x400 Image LG OLED48A29LA

The OLED48A29LA is a 48 inch 4K TV from LG. It was launched in 2022. It features a True 10-bit OLED panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 92 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next most important spec to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that.considering the TV features an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. Rest assured, OLED panels are excellent at producing accurate colors.

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut spec of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can produce.

A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.

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

But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Next in the list is Static Contrast.

Why its important?

There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.

This tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio < 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Apart from this, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.

Note that, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, so lesser detail overall.

For a display with OLED panel, its static constrast should be Infinity : 1. So no need to worry about this.

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

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits.

Gaming Performance

If you are not into gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning 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.

The input lag on the LG OLED48A29LA is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. Gamers gonna love this TV.

Understanding Input lag and response time

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

But ideally, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 300 x 200 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The width of this TV is 42.13 inches while its height is 26.93 inches.

It is just 1.81 inches thick. It weighs around 11.5 Kgs and 0.2 kgs extra including stand.
