Average High Frequency Rate

The 40PFH4200 has a fairly standard high frequency rate (60 hertz) compared to most of the other televisions of a comparable age and type to this TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 60Hz refresh rate TVs and we think the Samsung UN48J5500 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

TVs with a faster high frequency rate that might be worth looking at include the Hitachi 49HBT62A (100Hz), or the LG 43LH604 (£300) (100Hz).
