Am I missing something, or are a lot of the quoted numbers not matching up with the charts?

For example, in RoTR it says the premium gaming average is 50, but the chart shows 59.

The Metro: Last Light summary says an average of 68fps, but the chart shows 45.

The Handbrake test says an average of 9:39, but the chart shows 9:59.

And not to further nitpick, but the display description also mentions the experience being "dampered" by the dim screen.

Lately, it just feels as though a lot of articles have been pushed out without the usual level of copy editing.

I noticed a lot of odd inconsistencies with this article also.



This quote appears along side a chart that compares brightness and color among laptops. It seems like the Helios 500 only covers 108% of the SRGB gamet when the average is 281%, but 281% actually refers to the average brightness in nits. The whole thing is really misleading.
