The OLED55C2PUA is a 55 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 80 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important spec to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
LG did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess.
Since the TV comes with an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. Any OLED panel will always come with over 100% sRGB coverage.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that the TV can display.
Put Simply, it determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel 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 specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB, NTSC 1953, 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.
Now, next in the list is Static Contrast.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that might look dusty as shown in below image.
As you see, this will impact your experience considerably.
Also note, 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 produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always 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 Infinity:1. That's a plus point of owning an OLED TV. 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, it is capable of producing a maximum brightness of 250 nits.
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 this TV is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. You will love this TV if you are a gamer.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency at which your inputs changes the content of your display. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
For best of both worlds, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The width of this TV is 48.11 inches while its height is 29.76 inches.
It is just 1.78 inches thick.
It weighs around 12.7 KGs and 1.7 kgs extra including stand.
Now, speaking of 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.
