Quite Fast High Frequency Rate

Across all the TVs of a similar type and age to the 15EL9500 the high frequency rates range from 50Hz to 350Hz.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The 15EL9500 does not have a wi-Fi. Most of the other TVs of a comparable age and spec to the 15EL9500 also do not have a wi-Fi.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a wi-Fi and we think the Toshiba 23RL933 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative TVs which also support smart TV which you might want to consider including the Philips 22PFL3517T/12, or the LG 28LB490.
