Very Fast High Frequency Rate

The high frequency rates of similar spec TVs that came out more than two years ago range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz. When compared to other large display diagonal TVs that were released more than two years ago, the high frequency rate of the TX-L55WT50 of 1,600 hertz is one of the fastest.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1,600Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including the TX-L55DT65B, or the TX-L55DT50 both from Panasonic which and both of have better reviews.
