Average High Frequency Rate

The HG40EA570 has a pretty average high frequency rate (100 hertz) compared to most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to this TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 100Hz refresh rate televisions and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UE40ES5500 is also worth considering.

TVs with a faster high frequency rate that might be worth considering include the Samsung UE50F6400 (£349.99) (120Hz) which also has a higher rating.
