Sony Perceived Black Depth

The Sony has poor perceived black depth due to its glossy coating, inner black bezel, and back-light and glow in the top corners which only became invisible from a 5.5ft viewing distance which is ridiculous for a 43" display (3-4ft expected glow free distance for a 43" IPS).  The perceived black depth is poor even when bias lighting (lights placed behind the display) is used, which was surprising since the panel in the Crossover 434K with 600:1 contrast which I reviewed in 2015 had a better semi-glossy coating, and was glow free when viewed from 3ft away.  Here's the Destiny 2 Pyramid ship screen on shot on the Sony, but this time with the lights off while the top photo is with my bias lights on:
