LG 55NANO75UPA TVDesign

The design of the LG NANO75 TV is basic. The available color is ‘dark steel’. It has metallic borders. There is one button underneath the center of the TV which you can use to turn it on or off, and change inputs. The inputs are on the side of the TV. This is suitable if the TV is wall-mounted. The back is a thin, smooth metal panel. There are two hooks on the back for cable management.

The large back panel has a bit of flex to it. The stand is wide and would need a wide table. It raises the TV high for soundbars to fit in properly without blocking the image. It supports the TV well, though there is a bit of wobble.  The TV has a thickness of about 2.3”. Overall, the TV has a decent build quality.

Picture/View

The LG NANO75 is a 4k  perfect display TV. Its real scene peak brightness is 203 cd/square meter. The peak brightness in SDR and HDR is disappointing. The screen has a semi-gloss finish that reduces the intensity of direct reflection a bit. It gives images a bluish tint. It shows no sign of image retention. It does not support Dolby vision.

The TV has an unsatisfactory contrast, blacks look like gray in a dark room. It’s not very bright, it has a fair color gamut, but can’t display a wide color gamut. It doesn’t have a local dimming feature. The TV has a fair gray uniformity and a poor black uniformity. It has a reasonable viewing angle for wider seating arrangements.. It has a fair enough reflection handling. Fortunately, there is no risk of permanent burn-in.

 Sound

The LG NANO75 TV has a decent frequency response. Its low-frequency extension (LFE) is high. It has a decent distortion performance. Some distortion occurs at moderate volume but is more noticeable at higher volume levels. For better sound, you could get a soundbar.

Gaming

The LG NANO75 TV supports most of the base features of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Recommendation

For SDR content

  • Picture Mode: Expert (Dark Space,  night)
  • If you watch in a brighter room, the Picture Mode: Expert (Bright Space, day)
  • Contrast: 80
  • Color Depth: 50
  • Tint: 0
  • Color Temperature: Warm 50
  • For HDR content: Default settings

HDR  is automatically enabled for the native apps.

The Good The Bad
  • It has a decent color gamut.
  • It also has wide viewing angles that are suitable for a wide sitting arrangement.
  • It has a satisfactory grey uniformity.
  • For the game mode, the input lag is low.
  • It has HDR on YouTube.
  • Also, HDR in Netflix.
  • It lacks a high native contrast ratio. This makes it unable to display dark saturated colors very well.
  • There is no local dimming.
  • The black uniformity is insufficient
  • You will notice a permanent flicker in all picture modes.
  • This TV cannot overcome glare.
  • It has a poor color volume.

 

Conclusion

The LG NANAO75 is satisfactory for most uses. It is cool for watching TV shows or sports during the day. It has a wide viewing audience for a larger audience and low input lag for gaming. regrettably, it’s not a good choice for a dark room for watching movies due to its low contrast, low black uniformity, and no local dimming feature.
