WHAT IS A REFRESH RATE?
The refresh rate is the number of frames per second a TV can display and it’s measured in Hertz, or Hz for short. So, a 120Hz TV means 120 unique images are displayed per second. TV manufacturers realize that when it comes to marketing electronics, products with higher spec numbers usually get the edge – but trying to gain a competitive edge and increase profits this way is not only misleading, it can be illegal under laws put in place to protect consumers purchasing goods in the marketplace. According to a CNET article, “One of the latest marketing techniques, shall we say ‘gifts for fiction,’ is using different technology to approximate the effect of a higher refresh rate, without actually driving the TV at the higher rate.”

Misleading Refresh Rates
Certain LG TV owners have been led to believe that their LG LED TV have refresh rates of 120Hz or 240Hz when, in actuality, its television rates are 60Hz and 120Hz, respectively. Consumers have brought a lawsuit alleging that LG Electronics and Best Buy falsely advertised LG televisions with lower picture quality than what appeared on the packaging and as a result, they were able to upcharge the cost of the TVs.
