The OLED55G2PUA is a 55 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit OLED evo panel.
The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 80 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important feature of 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 an OLED panel, so we can conclude that the equivalent sRGB coverage of this panel would be far above 100%.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can display.
What this means is, it tells the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.
Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast specification
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as shown in the below image:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The above TV's static contrast is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More is better.
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.
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 Infinity:1. That's a plus point of owning an OLED TV. So no need to worry about this at all.
HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10 Pro are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
Coming to brightness, it is can produce a peak luminance of 250 nits.
If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming 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 this TV 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 amount of time at which key-presses/mouse movements 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 < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Now, 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 300 x 200 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
Vertically, the TV measures 55 inches and horizontally 48.1 inches.
It is just 1 inches thick. It weighs approximately 17.1 kgs and an additional 4.22 kgs including stand. So plan your space accordingly.
Hardware and Audio
The TV comes with a Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any info about the RAM on this TV.
The UI on this TV is powered by webOS 22 Operating System.
For display connectivity, there are four HDMI 2.1 ports and one S/PDIF port on this TV.
To connect USB devices, you will have three USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female), 1x RS232 (C), 1x IR Out and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
Wireless connectivity options on the LG OLED55G2PUA include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.
Now, for audio, it is packaged with 4 x 10W speakers. It also comes with a built-in subwoofer. So you may not have to invest on any external sound system.
Speaking of power usage, the TV uses 113.28 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.
For powering this unit, you'll need either a 110V or 220V outlet @ 50Hz-60Hz.
