Tournament season is upon us, and I thought, what better way to get in on the fun than with a tournament of my own? So, I picked eight TVs, created a bracket, and am pitting them against each other in a tournament-style showdown! I've assigned point values to each of their standout features and specs (3 points for rare or exclusive features/specs among them, 2 points for more common ones, and 1...
