The OLED65A29LA is a 65 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit OLED panel.
It can display a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important specification to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.
Since the TV features an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. Because OLED panels ALWAYS come with over 100% sRGB coverage.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can produce.
What this means is, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low 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, DCI P3 etc.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast ratio of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.
Static contrast defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:
Apart from that, such TVs are also prone backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Also, 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, 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.
For a display with OLED panel, its static constrast would be Infinity : 1. 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.
As for brightness, it is capable of producing a maximum brightness of 250 nits.
If you aren't into gaming, 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, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the LG OLED65A29LA 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 device inputs changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
Although for better experience, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 300 x 200 mm is provided for wall-mounting. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.
The TV measures 65 inches vertically and 57 inches horizontally.
It is just 1.81 inches thick.
It weighs around 17.1 kgs and an additional 0.2 kgs if you include stand.
