Can you cite reputable sources to back up this assertion?

For me, even the least expensive OLED monitors are vastly superior in
reproducing 709 to ones where an uncalibrated fluorescent bulb of unknown age
or low CRI LEDs are being pushed through liquid crystal substrates. 

That's not even considering that dark gray is not black, and even the more
expensive IPS panels lack decent off-axis reproduction of colors and contrast.
