They now show the main differences between two products, depending on the usage rating you care about. You can quickly compare the trade-off between two products that you are considering buying.
Selecting the main differences between two products
The list of main differences is automatically generated based on the usage rating you selected. To be displayed in this list, the difference of scores multiplied by the weight must be more than 0.1.
As an example, let's take the Sony X900E vs the Samsung MU8000 (Movies rating):
Local dimming is displayed since (6.5 - 1.8) x 12% = 0.564, which is more than 0.1.
This tool complements our recommendation tool. It helps you in your final decision stage to select which one to go for between two products. Let us know by email or comments if you have other ideas on how to improve this tool.
Questions & Answers
You can see our settings recommendations here. You should adjust 'Backlight' between night and day to avoid crushing details in the day or producing too bright an image at night. If you like some added sharpness then you can increase the 'Sharpness' slider but too high values will cause artifacts. Also adjust the 'Color Temperature' to your preference, and use a cooler value if you prefer more pop. If it is a low quality source then you should enable 'Reduce Signal Noise' and 'Reduce Block Noise'.
