Just to double check, I put up a full black field with local dimming turned off. The backlight stays on. Then I cycled through window patterns in 10% increments. The background black stays the same.
Then I measured full-screen black and full-screen white. You guessed it... 7800:1
It's rock-solid confirmed, there's no way around it. And yeah, viewed head-on with local dimming turned off, this TV looks great. I don't know how/why this TV is delivering such great native contrast. Please do note, there's VA panel drop-off so these contrast figures are for head-on. Going down to figure that off-axis stuff out right now.
