Launched in the year 2022, the OLED65G29LD is a 65" 4K TV from LG. It features a True 10-bit OLED evo panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important feature of a display is its Color Reproduction, 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. considering the TV comes with an OLED panel, so we can conclude that the equivalent sRGB coverage of this panel would be far above 100%.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut spec of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that it can produce.
A TV with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Viz — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
Why its important?
The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Apart from this, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Clearly this will rob your viewing experience, especially in a dark room.
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 produce less shades of colors, so 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 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 can go as bright as 250 nits.
If you are not into gaming, you can 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 get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the LG OLED65G29LD is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. So its a go-to TV if you are interested in gaming.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency at which your key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
Although for better experience, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 65 inches vertically and 56.7 inches horizontally.
It is 1 inches thick. Overall it weighs 26.99 kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 22.82 kgs.
Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 300 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
Hardware and Audio
The internals of LG OLED65G29LD is powered by Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any information on the total RAM on the TV's specsheet.
Speaking of OS, the LG OLED65G29LD runs webOS 22 Operating System.
