re: dedicated NRs were not tested at all

The comment about color noise is a very true one - it is sometimes very difficult to even match the NR output of the OOC JPG images in LR.

DxO has been studying the noise-vs-sharpness dilemma for a while now, and they seem to have gotten a handle on it.

There are lots of other reviews and tools to (Google) search for, I am not particularly interested.

the whole triad: LR4, DXO & Capture One are general purpose packages. In contrast, by dedicated NRs I've meant of course the likes of Topaz DeNoise or Neat Image (two clear leaders in a pack of similar SW solutions). But, yes... you (and reviewers) are right concerning difficulty in processing color noise - the luminance one is quite a lot easier to cope with.
