Color Temperature

On the graph below, the green area shows the limit of perceptibility. Unless you have superhuman color detecting skills, you won't notice any changes that occur in that green area. The degree to which the line veers outside the green is indicative of how obvious the color shift will be.

The 50PQ30 didn't have any major problems with this test. There were some minor fluctuations along the way, but they were so minor that they're not really noticeable. More on how we test color temperature.

RGB Curves

The 50PQ30 had decent color representation overall. The small bumps along the curves represent some minor lost details, but it isn't anything the average viewer would miss. The overall shape of the curve indicates a smooth progression from dark colors to high-intensity colors. More on how we test RGB curves.
