I did some of that testing. We got several units from others and tested
them with the same antenna and attenuator. I then noted the attenuator
setting for each unit.
In the end, all units were very similar in sensitivity. I did not find
that one model that would be significantly better than the others. With
similar components available to all makers and the lack of a design
flaw, this is pretty much what you would expect.
I did notice some real differences in features related to decoding and
displaying station menus. All the units get the data but some choose to
show a lot and some very little.
