Average High Frequency Rate

At 100 hertz, the TX-40CS520 has a fairly average high frequency rate compared to most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been available for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 100Hz refresh rate televisions currently available including a cheaper TV such as the Panasonic TX-50AS520 or you might consider a higher rated TV such as the Hisense LTDN40K370.

If this Panasonic TV high frequency rate is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Samsung UE40H6400 (400Hz) which is also higher rated.
