Color Temperature

The Sony KDL-46EX700 had a really solid color temperature. It tends to run a bit cool, but not by an amount you'd notice. The only area you would notice is towards the dark end, where it becomes noticeably warm for the briefest of stretches. No complaints here. More on how we test color temperature.

RGB Curves

The KDL-46EX700 performed well on our color accuracy tests. In the graph below, we've plotted how the red, green, and blue colors progress from their darkest to their brightest. All have roughly the same curve, which is good, and there's hardly any bumps along the way (bumps indicate a loss of detail, since it means two adjacent colors are either too similar or too different). More on how we test RGB curves.

RGB Curves Chart

We've turned the above graph into three different gradients, shown below. These gradient bars show the progression from highest intensity to lowest. Bumps will look like vertical bars that stand out from the smoothness of the gradient.
