12 Reasons Against

Very Slow Refresh Rate

The average refresh rate of mid-size TVs that have been on the market for more than two years is 180Hz, and the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz. The 40L2434 has one of the slower refresh rates (only 50 hertz) amongst mid-size TVs of this age.

We compared all the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32X5[plb_2010005_price], and the Toshiba 32D1334[plb_1494903_price] is also worth considering.

If this TV refresh rate is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Philips 32PHK4309[plb_2237064_price] (60Hz).
