Very Slow High Frequency Rate

Televisions of a similar age and spec to this television have high frequency rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 320Hz. With a high frequency rate of only 100 hertz, the LG LW550 has one of the slower high frequency rates amongst similar spec TVs of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 100Hz refresh rate televisions currently available including because of its better review score, the Sharp LC-60LE636.

If this television high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Samsung UE55F6800 (£799.99) (120Hz).
