We compared this TV to all the other 100Hz refresh rate TVs and we think the UE22F5400AW, and the UE22F5410 both from Samsung or the Panasonic TX-L32BL6E which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

TVs with a faster high frequency rate that might be worth looking at include the 22LB4510 (120Hz and higher rated), or the 39LB5610 (120Hz and higher rated) both from LG or the Haier LE39M7000 (120Hz and higher rated).
