Sony Bravia KDL-46BX420 LCD HDTV Review
A decent budget buy that crams more performance in its 46-inch screen than many higher-priced models.
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.
The Sony KDL-46BX420 has nice, smooth RGB curves that are relatively tightly in-line with each other, meaning that the TV has little trouble displaying the correct values of each color along the greyscale. Overall the KDL-46BX420 scored well here. More on how we test RGB curves.
Below are linear representations of each RGB curve as compared with the color values of each comparison model TV set.
