Color Temperature

The Sony KDL-46BX420 did a great job in maintaining an accurate color temperature throughout the entire range of signal intensity, despite its slight flare towards the darkest end of the spectrum. Given that the error levels very rarely stray into the limit at which it's possible for the human eye to detect, we can tell you that you will almost never notice this being a problem, even if you're looking for it. More on how we test color temperature.
