Very Slow High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of only 120 hertz, the MultiSync E554 has one of the slower high frequency rates amongst large display diagonal TVs of this age. Across all the TVs of this type and age the high frequency rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 350Hz.

If you are looking for a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the Samsung UE55H7000 (£1,299.99) (800Hz) which also has a higher rating.
