test data - technicalities?


Novice Member
I am trying to decide between 2 players:

Sony ns705
Philips 763sa

Both get good reviews, but the test data appears to tell a different tale.
Sony: all counts are very good or excellent
Philips: Video jitter - below average (8ns)
signal to noise ratio - below average
chroma crosstalk - below average
(all others good /very good)

I am beginnning to understand some of the terminology after searching this forum and reading the explanation of the tests, but both reviews are good - both players get 4.5/5 for picture quality and overall :confused:

Can anyone enlighten me as to how much the test data actually matters?
