How trusted can these scores be taken?  Are these clear from manufactures buying their scores or paying for such test?

They may be legitimate, but they are based on only three factors, and manufacturers could pay for an evaluation.

IMO they are of limited value.

True, but they could be like Tony Northrups YouTube Channel and not be influenced and give a fair unbiased report.  I don't know either, so I'm just going to scratch my head now.

Didn't these guys file Chapter 11 recently?  Or did someone buy them out?

DxO is two parts: the benchmark part, and the labs part.
