Because the Q60T uses an IPSIn-Plane Switching, type of LCD Panel panel, its contrast ratio of 1350:1 and its black is not really convincing. This has a negative effect on the picture quality in dark surroundings – deep black scenes look rather grayish under this condition. On the other hand, it has a quite respectable image in bright rooms, which is due to its excellent reflection handling. In addition, IPS panels have the advantage that their viewing angle is quite wide, so there is no fading of the colors when you sit at an oblique angle to the display – which is probably the biggest advantage of the NANO81 compared to the Q60T. The IPS panel’s response time of ~6ms is lower than the Q60T’s, so its motion handling is slightly better; therefore, less motion blur is noticeable during fast movements.
Gaming is really fun on the NANO81, as it has a very low input lag, but just like the Q60T, the LG TV doesn’t have much extra features. The Edge Lit Local Dimming is not really an advantage as it is so poorly implemented and doesn’t really improve the picture.
