Contrast drop-off measurements...
The "viewing cone" outside of which black levels are double what they are head-on = 38 degrees, which is 19 degrees off-axis (so it's easy to compare with rtings). For whites, it's a 64-degree cone, or 32 degrees off-axis where levels drop to half of peak.
At the far edge of that 64-degree cone, native contrast ratio is 900:1, which is just a smidgen under IPS contrast ratio, fwiw. You get better than IPS contrast within a 60-degree cone (30 degrees off-axis).
These numbers (well aside from the "wow" on-axis native contrast) are fairly typical for VA panels, and therefore quite exciting in the context of this TV.
