Excellent LG Product...


Once again LG have produced a quality product however be careful going forward when considering a purchase...It has many excellent useful features but be careful when buying a model as above as the 65NanoCell 86TNA use's edge lit "LED" and it's annoying when you see the screen go all black and then one side of the screen mainly bottom edge towards the left is super bright due to the edge just being glaringly obvious...Dark areas within shows such as household / buildings and their internal areas also bad weather shots can be very, very dark around actors...Otherwise it represents good to better value than others...

Purchased in June 2020 for A$1,949.00.

Amazing tv how ever it's not a full array LED tv, massive difference between the 91 Model and the 86 Models, just be very careful on buying which model got misleading info from the retailer

the 86 use Edge Lit LED it's annoying when you see it go all black and one side of the screen is super bright due to the edge led
i'm now looking at replacing it with an 91 Full Array LED which is near oled but not oled! better then oled but as you shouldn't get burn in!

how ever i highly recommended getting a Nanocell 86 then the basic model tv's you will enjoy it!

this tv was a replacement for an older lg tv (replacement plus upgrade)

Purchased in May 2020 at The Good Guys.

Available in two options, a 65-inch TV selling for just over $2,759 and a more modest 55-inch (at least for 4K TVs) for $2,159.


This LG Nano86 Series uses an Alpha 7 Gen 3 Processor 4K with AI Picture and AI Sound (like the LG Nano91 Series), however unlike its slightly more premium offering, it doesn’t offer 4K Upscaling. This means that your TV uses Artificial intelligence to adapt its sound and image settings, depending on its location in the room. However, this TV cannot, in and of itself, upscale the original resolution to 4K to suit the TV’s 4K capability.


Some attractive features that the LG Nano91 Series is equipped with are: Dolby Vision IQ & Atmos , local array local dimming (compared however to the Nano91’s full array diming), filmmaker mode, HDR10 Pro to optimise detail (but lacks the 91 series’ HLG Pro), low input lag and VRR, ALLM and eARC and HGiG for smoother and more immersive gameplay.

LG Nano Cell technology

This uses particles to absorb light wavelengths that distort colour. The result is that red and greens display more ‘purely.’ Nano Cell also produces what the brand calls ‘True Colour,’ which refers to colours that stay accurate, including when watching the curved half-crescent screen at wide viewing angles. This helps everyone watching TV to enjoy the vivid colours, no matter where they’re sitting in the room.

Is Nano Cell the same as Samsung’s QLED?

While both are versions of LED LCD screen tech, they are brand specific. Nano Cell technology is unique to LG TVs, whereas QLED is Samsung’s patented Quantum Dot LED technology. This uses a backlit LED panel or colour sheet over an LCD screen to create rich picture quality. Some commentators say that the use of an extra sheet waters down the effectiveness of the technology, making LG's Nano Cell technology superior.
