So you disagree with something that was not stated...?
I never said what you imply and agree that some opinions carry more weight than others, but consider it is more often the end users giving the most in-depth opinions and honest feedback regarding a particular product versus the pro reviewer.

In this setting, the range of opinion is probably from helpful to misleading when the opinion of others leads to spending home entertainment money. For an individual to attempt to incorporate all opinions, on a given topic, into a plan of action would be illogical. That's my opinion.
I see we have different mindsets here, you are cup is half empty and I am cup is half full. I see value in all opinions in the context of this thread (the opinion that player A looks better that player B) and obviously have to discern which opinions/reviews are helpful to me, this is a given, but this does not mean that others will come to the same conclusion that I have regarding those same opinions (so all opinions can have value to someone).
I think we have strayed the thread far enough OT now and should let it get back to what it is here for... the Sony S790.
My attempt at curtailing the bickering only lead to more of it, lol.
