At 200 hertz, the Sony KDL-55HX755 has a relatively standard high frequency rate compared to most of the other televisions that have been on the market for more than two years.

If you want a television with a faster high frequency rate then you might want to consider the UE55F7000 (240Hz and higher rated), the UE65H6400 (400Hz and higher rated), or the UE75H6400 (400Hz and higher rated) all from Samsung.
