Can we trust review websites ?

Hi :
Like so many others here I have the hobby of reading reviews about cameras.

It does happen that different websites give vonflicting information about how a camera does perform.
I will give you an example.
Let us take the nikon j1.

In one website is it claimed that the nikon j1 did not well and was just kind of average

In another website one can read that the J1 has good color accuracy.


This is astonishing.
Any comments on that ?
Thank you.

PS : I did not post the links to the reviews on purpose since in any way I want to give bad publicity to particular review sites. In actual fact the people that maintain these sites do a good job trying to enlighten the rest of us.

I just want to highlight this issue . At the same time I am grateful to the people who do these reviews.
