Which reviews in particular ? CNET is pretty fair and alot of the pro reviews have been backed up by user experience and pro calibrators on this site.

65VT60(Calibrated by Chad B)
55ST60(Calibrated by Chunon)
Darbee DVP5000
Sony BDV-F7 3dbluray/soundbar
Calman Enthusiast/I1Pro/I1D3
Dish Network with Hopper/Super Joey

Ask your questions from actual users here. If their responses are close to what the reviewer stated, then it's probably an un-biased review. Reviews are great places to start but I give more weight to the users who have them in their homes and not some sterile test environment.

I think any forum with a "thumbs up" button should also have a "thumbs down" button.

How do I know that we're not all shills?

P.S. I haven't gotten this month's check yet, have you guys??

Seriously though, I guess you don't. As Otto says, you just have to look around and see what info jives and weed out the outliers. Usually it becomes apparent sooner or later when someone (whether a website or a forum poster) has an agenda. Don't take any single opnion as gospel.
