Dynex DX-46L261A12 LCD HDTV Review$599.00
The Dynex DX-46L261A12 had few problems maintaining a consistent color temperature. Well done, Dynex. More on how we test color temperature.
We test each of the 256 values in each of the red, green, and blue channels in order to get an accurate gauge of how well the TV transitions from dark to light. We're looking for smooth lines, and that's not really what we're seeing here. Look at the chart below. You'll see hundred of little hiccups in the line. In real life TV viewing, that manifests itself as color banding – stripes of solid color where there should be seamless gradients. It's not the worst we've seen, but it's far from the best. More on how we test RGB curves.
The strips below are digital recreations of the test data, as you might see them on the TV screen. They're compared with three similar TVs, as well as an ideal response curve.
