Either that or has anyone added a static rear glow, and how does it look?
I have used some warm white IKEA led strips on the back of my TVs for years and I like it. I feel it makes the picture nicer to watch. The multicolor IKEA ones are far worse as they have a very cold white color.
Obviously the ones that change color depending on the content are nicer but afaik pretty expensive and you run into issues like finding a device that can split the signal and pass through 4K @ 60 Hz + HDR + HDCP 2.2 without adding input lag. I really wish manufacturers just licensed the tech from Philips and had it as a feature on every TV.
Until then I'll probably be sticking with the cheap IKEA solution.
