What paint is better?

Please explain to me, using any objective or reasonably subjective means, why Benjamin Moore / Dunn Edwards paints are superior to the premium Behr paints? I've seen the Consumer Reports, but this doesn't seem to have convinced scores of people that Behr is really that great.

I am pricing paint for interior painting, and the price difference between name-brand contractor-grade paints and retail paints like Behr is significant. I have been unable to get a good idea of why, exactly, Behr paints are not considered as good as Ben Moore of Dunn Edwards paints. Scientific explanations are welcome, as are your personal observations. Thanks!
