Any improvement on the black side for the past 5 years?

I find Rtings confusing on their ratings, as well. They're generally really perplexing in monitor reviews. They can take two displays with similar local dimming systems and panels and rate one a 2.0 and the other a 7.5.
I don't know if they go back and rework the numbers on their older reviews but in just a few years local dimming has gone from a couple of zones to hundreds on the higher end model so the scale has changed a lot.

Can you show an example?

I had been away from a screen for almost two months this summer and since I came back I couldn't stand my IPS monitor anymore, and had been looking to change ever since.
and then ... yesterday I realized... that for an unknown reason my NVIDIA drivers were not outputting a full RGB range but a reduced 16-235 .
Now beside feeling stupid but I also feel a vast improvement in the black. ....

Sometimes I get paranoid that my IPS monitor is not showing RGB 0 for black after a session with the OLED TV and I monkey with the settings to convince myself that’s actually black :)

Heh. I can see myself doing that once I get an oled.
