With a high frequency rate of 200 hertz, the Toshiba 40TL963 has a quite fast high frequency rate compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 200Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including the LG 42LE8500 which has better reviews.

If this television high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Samsung UN50F6300 (240Hz), or the Toshiba 46WX800 (240Hz) which also has a higher rating.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a wi-Fi to this TV and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30, or the LG 42LB730 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
