Average High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of 800 hertz, the TX-40CX700 has a fairly standard high frequency rate compared to most of the other comparable spec TVs that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 800Hz refresh rate TVs to this television and we think the Panasonic TX-55CX700 (£1,194.79) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a TV with a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the TX-55CX750 (1,000Hz and higher rated), or the TX-49CX750 (1,000Hz and higher rated) both from Panasonic.
