8 Reasons Against

Very Slow Refresh Rate

With a refresh rate of only 50 hertz, the Samsung UE40C5100 has one of the slower refresh rates amongst mid-size TVs of this age. The slowest refresh rate of televisions that have been available for more than two years is 50Hz, the fastest is 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 180Hz.

We compared all the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony KDL-32EX340[plb_1475872_price] is also worth considering.

If this TV refresh rate is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the JVC LT-32C461[plb_3406110_price] (60Hz), or the Cello C32227[plb_2134380_price] (60Hz).
