I have this IPS set. As to be expected, blacks are not as dark as you can get with a VA panel, but the trade off is more reliable colour reproduction off-axis although the luminance still drops off. The lack of contrast is really noticeable in a darkened room. The display definitely would benefit from some backlighting along the lines of Philips Hue.

What really disappoints me is the HDR performance. I'm finding that, despite the 4k resolution, I can get a more balanced image for contrast with plain old 1080p HD. When the display switches to HDR mode it changes the settings available for controlling the picture and not in a good way. I get it that the TV is boosting the brightness to get a punchy picture without overblowing, but the contrast is so bad that it just ends up making every thing far too grey. Also, the dynamic contrast is diabolical as it produces columns of grey all over the place and a 'halo' effect on bright spots.

I suppose what I really want is an OLED panel, but it was beyond my pocket when the last TV died. Maybe next time...
Still shows as £649 in that link? I could be missing something though!? :-)
