Also, that is *not* simple IPS glow. That is serious backlight bleed. You can tell because it isn't uniform. As well as the fact that IPS glow isn't that
bad when looking straight on.
Inflated contrast values would be dynamic contrast values. Most people did not stop caring about static contrast, only you it seems.
Black performance is not moot, LOL. There is still a HUGE difference between VA blacks and IPS and TN blacks. Between 0.03 cd/m2 and 0.12 + glow. High end VA TVs can actually get pretty damn close to black, and bias lighting will take that a step further.
I think that photo is a mix of IPS glow and backlight bleed. Backlight bleed wouldn't affect the center of the screen like that, and IPS glow is pretty damn awful straight on with high refresh rate AHVA panels at merely 27" let alone a big TV. Remember, the photo is somewhat overexposed making it look worse than it really is, but the difference speaks for itself. IPS vs VA blacks. Calibration affects neither bleed nor glow.
