The LG NANO90 LCD TV is positioned at an upper midrange price. It delivers very good gaming performance, which is advantageous if you're a gamer looking for a TV with a fast response time and low input lag. The LED FALD (Full Array Local Dimming) IPS screen provides a fair overall picture quality and is capable of handling different kinds of content from sports to movies, but it doesn’t excel in any particular category. It’s worth noting that it may not offer the best experience in dark rooms because its dark room performance is just fair. The TV supports Dolby Vision and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, enhancing the viewing experience for movies and TV series that take advantage of these formats. It has a total of four HDMI ports and a screen that handles reflections very well, making it suitable for brighter rooms. Lastly, the sound quality is fair, so you might consider adding external speakers for a better audio experience. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Gaming:
4.4
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
Bright Room:
4.0
The LG NANO90 TV is decent for bright rooms due to its good SDR and HDR brightness, ensuring that the picture remains visible even in well-lit settings, and very good reflections handling minimizes the impact of light sources reflected on the screen.
Sports:
3.8
The LG NANO90 has a wide viewing angle and handles reflections very well, making it a suitable choice for group sports watching in bright rooms. However, its response time is only fair, which might lead to some motion blur during fast-paced games.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
3.5
The LG NANO90 has good upscaling capabilities, meaning it can effectively improve the picture quality of lower resolution content, which is often the case with news or talk shows. However, its performance is hampered by its poor colors out of the box, which can result in less accurate color representation until properly calibrated.
Overall Picture:
3.1
The LG NANO90 has fair picture quality mainly due to its limited contrast ratio of 62 and moderate performance in color reproduction, with colors out of the box described as poor and color volume as fair. Additionally, while its local dimming feature is present, it is rated only as '50', impacting its ability to display deep blacks and enrich HDR content.

"Here we have HDR pictures that look bright, but also manage to typically hit decently deep black levels.WebOS continues, though, to be one of the easiest to use. Connections are strong for a mid-range TV. Native 4K pictures look crisp and detailed."
