Panasonic Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

Panasonic has good average reviews for its large TVs as well as across its entire television range.

Fairly Fast Refresh Rate

Across all the large TVs that are a similar age to the TX-L55DT65 the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 3,000Hz, and the average refresh rate is 330Hz. The TX-L55DT65 has one of the fastest refresh rates (1,600 hertz) amongst large TVs of this age.

We compared this television to all the other 1,600Hz refresh rate TVs and we think the Panasonic TX-L55DT50[plb_1279810_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a television with a faster refresh rate then you might also want to look at the TX-55AX902[pl_2659619_price] (3,000Hz), or the TX-65AX902[pl_2659620_price] (3,000Hz) both from Panasonic.
