ABOUT THIS TV

LG OLED97G29LA 400x400 Image LG OLED97G29LA

The OLED97G29LA is a 97 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit OLED evo panel.

It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 45 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.

As the TV features an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. Any OLED panel will always come with over 100% sRGB coverage.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that the TV can produce.

Meaning, this specification tells the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A display with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

But don't worry, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, next in the list that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding Static Contrast

Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Apart from this, such displays may suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:

Needless to say, this will rob your 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, 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 should be Infinity : 1. So no need to worry about this.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10 Pro.

Coming to brightness, the peak luminance the TV can achieve is 250 nits.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use the TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, make sure to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time affects the performance.

The input lag on the LG OLED97G29LA is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. So its a go-to TV if you are interested in gaming.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the amount of time at which your key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of your TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 85.64 inches while its height is 50 inches. It weighs 23.6 KGs. So plan your space accordingly.

Speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
