Not 3D

The 55HFL5010 is not 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other large display diagonal TVs that have been around for more than a year are also not 3D.

If you want a TV that is 3D then you might want to look at the Samsung UE55H6400 (£599.99); or the Sony KDL-55W807 (£638).

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

At only 60 hertz, the 55HFL5010 has a fairly slow high frequency rate compared to most of the other TVs of a similar age and spec to this TV. The high frequency rates of large display diagonal TVs that have been around for around the same time as this television range from 50Hz to 900Hz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 60Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including the Samsung UE55J5500 which is cheaper.

If you want a TV with a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the LG 55LH604 (£499) (900Hz) which is also cheaper.

55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inches television.

We compared all the other 55" televisions to this television and we think the Samsung UE55H6400 (£599.99) which has better reviews; or the Sony KDL-55W807 (£638), and the Samsung UE55J5500 both of which are cheaper are also worth considering.

If you want a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Samsung UE58J5200 (£537.67) (58"), or the Sony KDL65W855 (£729) (65").
