The OLED88ZZPUA is a 88 inch 8K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit OLED panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 7680 x 4320 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 101 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next 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 specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess.
Now, since it features an OLED panel, so we can conclude that the equivalent sRGB coverage of this panel would be far above 100%.
Understanding Color Gamut
Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can produce.
What this means is, this specification determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such TVs often suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Clearly this will affect your experience considerably, 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 show both dark gray and black as black, 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.
Given this TV comes with an OLED panel, its static constrast will be Infinity : 1. So no need to worry about this at all.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10 Pro.
As for brightness, it is can produce a maximum luminance of 250 nits.
If you aren't interested in gaming, 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 would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on this TV 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 key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of your display. 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 has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
Vertically, the TV measures 88 inches and horizontally 77.2 inches. It is just 1.96 inches thick.
It weighs approximately 42.0 KGs and 62 kgs extra including stand.
Now, coming to ergonomics — Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
Hardware and Audio
The LG OLED88ZZPUA comes with a Quad Core CPU while its graphics engine is handled by a 2-Core GPU.. There is no data on the total RAM on the TV's official specsheet.
Speaking of OS, the LG OLED88ZZPUA runs 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 Satellite In (F-type female), 1x RS232 (C), 1x IR Out and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
For wireless connectivity on this TV, the manufacturer has provided a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.
Now, for audio, LG has provided 4 x 10W speakers on the TV. It also comes with a built-in subwoofer. So you don't have to invest on an external sound system.
Speaking of power consumption, this TV consumes 306W on average and 0.5W on standby.
For powering this unit, you'll need an 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
