The OLED97G2PUA is a 97 inch 4K TV from LG. It was launched in 2022. It features a True 10-bit OLED evo panel.
It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 45 ppi.
Now, the next important spec of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.
LG did not provide a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess.As it comes with an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. Any OLED panel will always come with over 100% sRGB coverage.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the display can produce.
A panel with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. 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.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.
The importance of 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.
This tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Note that, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will rob your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. 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.. 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.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits.
If you are planning to use your TV solely 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 get 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.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the latency at which your 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.
For best of both worlds, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 97 inches vertically and 85.64 inches horizontally. Overall, it weighs 23.6 Kgs.
Speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 400 x 400 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
Hardware and Audio
The core of LG OLED97G2PUA is powered by 4-Core CPU. However, LG didn't provide any specification on the total RAM on this TV.
The Operating System on this TV is webOS 22.
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 Cable/Antenna In (F-type female), 1x RS232 (C), 1x IR Out and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA.
The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 4 x 10W built-in speakers. It also comes with a built-in sub-woofer. So you don't have to invest on an external sound system.
Now, coming to power consumption, on average, this TV consumes about 255.31 Watts. On standby, it uses 0.5 Watts.
Both 110V and 220V lines are supported on this unit.
