Which procedures are the correct one's to use in your view for white balance? and are you a qualified calibrator?I've read that as well, not convinced it's not the same dude they send around to your house when your TV's giving problems. I'm not saying the TVs don't perform as poorly as they claim, I just don't have much confidence in their ability to draw the correct conclusions. I'll wait to see what qualified AV journalists who actually sit with the TV for a length of time, put forth actual reviews and have a direct line to manufacturers in case of anomalies have to say.
EDIT: Let me clarify my feeling on Rtings as it stands now. I do look at their site and I am subscribed to their YouTube channel, I just don't hold them in the same regard as I do sites that have professional calibrators on staff.
If you look at their site, essentially they're just an Amazon storefront. They test headphones and TVs purchasable from Amazon and receive payment from Amazon for every sale linked through their site.
If you look at their reviews they have a list of names credited to each review, they don't have a single qualified calibrator sitting with the TV for a week putting it through its paces and investigating the ins and outs, instead it's a conveyor belt of tests conducted by various people, even the job posting states no experience required and that 50% of you responsibilites are to "test new products by following the procedure" and that inexperience shows in their calibrated settings, where their white balance adjustment figures demonstrate incorrect procedure.
I think they have a very sound testing suite, but the way it's set up makes me wonder if a new model line pitches up on their doorstep with a new setting that unexpectedly affects output - would they pick it up? They have made simple procedural errors in the past.
