We compared this TV to all the other 60Hz refresh rate televisions and we think because of it's better review score, the Philips 50PFK4309 is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a faster refresh rate then you might want to look at the Hisense LTDN50K220 (£365.00) (100Hz), or the Panasonic TX-50A300 (£329.00) (100Hz).
