And this is true, however when you are dealing with the same brand, usually they are measured the same. Not always, but most of the time. Thus in this situation, it definitely applies here.

This is why before I buy a TV, I will look for a detailed review from a third party. Often times these reviews will include somebody doing actual measurements of response time, contrast ratio, etc.
