I would just like to know if one generally looks much better than the other when watching hdr movies or playing hdr games. Like say your not thinking about technical aspects like how there experiments measured how bright or dark it got or the numbers behind color or color volume etc. Say your just watching stuff. Does either stand out as much better than the other. They seem to have overlooked serious blooming problems and serious stutter in their reviews. Besides they review too many tv’s they literally have a formula for quantifying the experience of watching these tv’s. I think they lose sight of what make a tv look good. Or maybe all the praise for OLED isn’t really sinking in because store demos at Best Buy don’t play anything but the useless demo footage like videos of a teapot fading in and out and videos of the sun shining on a piles of leaves.

I agree that numbers are not everything, and rankings may not reflect your needs accurately because of a products particular strengths, weaknesses or cost
For example, I'm not into gaming, so I really don't care if the input lag is long on a Sony versus a LG OLED, but if I watch a lot of compressed content, the Sony has better upscaling, noise reduction and gradient dithering.
The value in the site is that they seem to have a very consistent testing methodology and update their data when they have updates to the tools or to the Firmware.
I know that I have certain things that bother me and I can look at the data side by side on this site and compare specific performance of those things. The site is very useful in this way.
I'm sure there will be some anecdotal side by side comparison posts here. Hopefully they will be helpful for you.
Depending on what happens over the next two weeks, I may be able to post side by side PQ vs Sony A1E comparisons for you.
