Not 3D

The LG 49LB5500 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other TVs that have been around for a similar time to this TV are also not 3D.

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of only 60 hertz, the 49LB5500 has a quite slow high frequency rate compared to most of the other similar spec televisions that came out more than two years ago. Medium display diagonal TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as this television have high frequency rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 220Hz.

Other 60Hz refresh rate TVs currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper TV such as the Cello C40227 or you might consider a higher scoring TV such as the Philips 42PFT6309 (£349.99).

If this LG television high frequency rate is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Hisense LTDN40K370 (£267.99) (100Hz) which is also higher rated.
