If you want a faster high frequency rate then you might want to consider the Samsung T32E390[plb_3404279_price] (400Hz) which also has a higher rating.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the UE46ES8000S[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Crisp, smooth images with deep blacks. Very efficient and thin, could do with a higher refresh rate and more hdmi's but that's being picky.
