Launched in the year 2022, the OLED83G29LA is a 84" 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 52 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the very next feature of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.
LG did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess.considering it features an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. Because Any OLED panel will always come with over 100% sRGB coverage.
What is Color gamut ?
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 washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ?
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.
This defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio less than 1000:1 may 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, a TV with high constrast ratio allows you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of Infinity:1. That's a plus for OLED TVs. 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.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits.
If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want 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. You will love this TV if you are a gamer.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the amount of time at which device inputs changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
But ideally, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
