Not 3D

The TX-40CS620 is not 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to this TV are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D then you might want to consider the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE48H6700.

Fairly Fast High Frequency Rate

The TX-40CS620 has one of the faster high frequency rates (400 hertz) amongst TVs of this age. Across all the TVs of this spec and age the high frequency rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 400Hz refresh rate televisions currently available including because of their better review scores, the UE40H6400 (£249.99), or the UE40F6800 (£668.39) both from Samsung.

supports Wi-Fi
