Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most large TVs that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The 50PFH4309 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera including the Samsung UN55ES8000[plb_403312_price], the LG 55EA980[plb_2042821_price], or the Panasonic TX-55ASW804[plb_2382034_price].

Quite Slow Refresh Rate

When compared to other comparable spec TVs that have been available for more than two years that we have checked, the refresh rate of the 50PFH4309 of only 60 hertz is one of the slowest. Across all the TVs that were released around the same time as the 50PFH4309 the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 3,000Hz.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 60Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including because of it's better review score, the Philips 50PFK4309[plb_2227306_price].

If you would prefer a faster refresh rate then you might also want to look at the Hisense LTDN50K220[plb_3890315_price] (100Hz), or the Panasonic TX-50A300[plb_2659618_price] (100Hz).
