Yes - apparently for like you, this review would be pointless. 99% of ordinary buyers do not understand picture quality and trust blindly on every review. The question is how the review and comparisons are correct ....
Actually, you linked some of my reviews from Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru across different threads. :-[
So I know a thing or two about evaluation process (totally inspired by HDTVtest). Honestly, making a fair and informative comparison is quite different from diving deep into fortune-telling based on specification.
What's "correctly" compared and what "is not" can be determined differently. Some people care about size, some about quality, the others want a good price. Some people want TV panel or processor being their favorite type.
There are a lot of points of view on this subject. Clearly, Shootout is about determining the best display among that presented on the market in similar top-end class by different manufacturers, without any restrictions.
Think of it as an open-class race where any car can participate.

You can not compare cars that have such a striking difference in the engines ... One with 12 cylinders, the other 4 ... Start comparison with similar cars and engines - as the number of cylinders and engine displacement.
The comparison is done between similar displays - similarly positioned and priced displays.
If Manufacturer A's best product is a poor quality one and Manufacturer B's is excellent, that is their problem and not a fault of the event.
If Manufacturer A sells 4-cylinder poorly made car for a $20000 and Manufacturer B sells 12-cylinder high-performance model for the same $20000, then A is most probably screwed.
But it's not the fault of the person who says so. And there's nothing wrong to admit that. :)
However, if Model A's performance is still better, then it's whole another case.
There's so many combinations, that it's pointless to go deep into classification. Only thing that matters is the final performance.
If car has a really great performance for its price and class, then nobody gives a damn if it has a petroleum or diesel engine with whatever displacement and configuration, or if this car is run by a bunch of elves on amphetamine. However, you'd probably have some problems in refuelling the latter. :lol:

Here is the message that has just been posted:
***************
Just installed our new dedicated enterprise service to deliver guaranteed 70mbps
up and 150mbps down speeds to ensure reliable HD streaming of our moderated TV
Shootout webcast.  I need this Internet speed to deliver HD resolution without
compression so our Worldwide online viewers will enjoy the best possible video.

This second Internet service is totally separate from our dedicated broadband
service that our company uses for all other connections to the Internet.

Check out Samsung's Director of Quality Assurance Engineering, Mike Wood's presentation at our 2014 TV Shootout

This is the last of the manufacturers presentations.  The next segment is run by Kevin Miller and he speaks on contrast ratio and demonstrates how each TV performs with test patterns and real video content.
