I would suggest deciding based on the items that are most important to you. For example, someone that watches in a dim room is likely to care more about black-level performance than someone that watches with a lot of light in the room. There are similar personal considerations for things like off-axis performance, screen reflections, uniformity, etc. Every single TV is built to sell at a certain budget, and even the 65" Sony retailing at $7000 isn't perfect. All consumer displays are going to have some compromises in order to sell at the selected price. In my opinion the only thing that really matters is if you can live with those design choices. No matter how much people like to talk up various "must-have" features, every TV model has some strengths and weaknesses, so I would suggest choosing from the models that best fit your interests.
While I have read a certain amount of TV reviews and forum gibberish, ultimately I bought what I preferred most for the price. After the TV was delivered I found that my 70" W850B has the non-uniformity discussed here, it has the backlight dimming and color gamut items mentioned in the Cnet review, and I still prefer the screen-finish from my prior TV for bright room lighting. If I had seen the non-uniformity before buying I might have instead went with the 60" version, but in the end I decided to keep the TV because there are simply more items I like than the few items I dislike. Most of the things I like about my TV are somewhat subjective and little more than personal preference. On a forum that purports to be science-based, personally I'd feel a little silly gushing why I like my TV, so personally I'm okay with the discussions about things that are technical deficiencies.
