Very Slow High Frequency Rate

The Philips 40PFS6909 has one of the slower high frequency rates (only 60 hertz) amongst TVs of this age. The high frequency rates of medium display diagonal TVs that have been on the market for more than two years range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 220Hz.

We compared this television to all the other 60Hz refresh rate TVs and we think cheaper televisions such as the 50PFH4009 (£455.39), and the 40PFS5709 (£469.99) both from Philips are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a faster high frequency rate then you might want to consider the Panasonic TX-50CS520 (£599) (100Hz and higher rated); or the Philips 40PFH5300 (200Hz and cheaper), or the Sony KDL-43WD752 (£429.98) (200Hz and cheaper).
