Suspensions - what makes them different?

There are many suspensions on the market: KW, JRZ, Ohlins, Moton, Bilstein, Sachs; and each of this company have different levels of suspension.

What I have been struggling to find is information on why one might be better than the other. Every company seems to have some unique technology they claim to be better than someone else's.

For examples what's the actual difference between the KW Club Sport and V3 apart from adjustability? What's the difference between the Ohlins TTX to make it better than their dual valve technology on their Road and Track? Why is Moton generally more expensive than the others?

I understand the basic equation on rebound/compression etc, but I struggle to understand what a more expensive suspension do, if the rebound and compression settings is tuned to the required amount.

Many thanks in advance!
