The LG 42LV5500 has a near-perfect color temperature consistency. As you can see in the chart below, it wavers just a little warm, then a little cool, then warm again, but the changes are so small that your eyes will never see them. More on how we test color temperature.
The LG 42LV5500 produces smooth color curves, as you can see in the chart below. The red, green, and blue channels move in unison from the darkest to the brightest signals. There's just a little hiccup at the upper-right edge of the red channel (which indicates the brightest reds), where the line goes horizontal. We call that peaking, the point at which the TV can't distinguish any more details in the highlights after a certain point. More on how we test RGB curves.
The strips below are digital recreations of the RGB color curve data, compared to three similar TVs as well as an ideal response curve.
