I almost pulled the trigger on this, but the “Fake” 120hz refresh rate claim at this price sent me digging.
In short, 60hz TV, not 120hz.
I bought one of these at Target new a month or two ago for just under $400. Huge upgrade from my aging 720p plasma TV.
I’m sure there’s plenty to complain about for connoisseurs, but I dare the average viewer to point out any weaknesses. It looks and works great!
It might still be a deal at this price, but a claim of 120hz refresh when it is actually only 60hz is a pretty big deal, and it should probably be corrected on the specs tab.
Hows the speakers on this?
Thank you! For this price, I wouldn’t expect 4k/120hz, but the reason I considered it was BECAUSE of that combo.
I got the 55" from target with a 2 year warranty. This doesn’t sound like such a good deal. Love the tv. Great picture.
I’m sure this probably looks great and is a good deal…
If all your looking for is a decent BFTV on the wall for a good price, this would do it.
I would really consider this if I had not made a no TV promise to the wife for 2016.
Yes it does have a Refresh Rate 60Hz (Specs are wrong) but I have realized as I am getting older I don’t watch with my glasses on and the great sound system is pretty useless because I need Closed captioning…
I got the 55" UP130 a few months ago and I LOVE it. Zero regrets. I finally dropped my cable service and that TV was a huge part of it. If I needed a 50" for another room, I would buy this in a heartbeat.
Unless all you watch is live sports, you don’t want 120hz. The original content was produced at a much lower frame rate. Asking your cheap crappy TV to take a stab at drawing 1/2 to 2/3 of the frames that you see is pretty stupid. In other words, 120hz is what makes the special effects in movies look plastic.
So, I know there’s been some discussion about refresh rates. I asked our vendor team to look into why we had 120hz and other claimed this TV has 60hz.
Here is what I was told:
The spec sheet of the television series says 60hz but the spec sheet of the actual item says 120hz. Walmart and Amazon say 120hz and spec sheet we have here from TCL says 120hz. So, all signs point to this being 120hz.
Well the TV lasted 16 days before the panel stopped working. This is why off brand TV’s have a bad rep.
Uh Oh! I’m really sorry to hear that. Please get in touch with Customer Service about this issue. They can help!
All the marketing on TCL is clear about the 120 refresh rate. It’s not fake, just different tech that makes it better than the normal 60 refresh rate through the magic of science.
I feel like people also have this same complaint about digital camera sensor sizes. It does play a role, to be sure. But there’s a whole lot more that factors into a great camera than just sensor size.
Figuring out gizmo specs is definitely becoming tougher–like scrying bird entrails or something. But just in case anyone was wondering, this is a 60 hz, but they do some mumbo jumbo to it to make it effectually a 120 hz. (or at least that’s what they said when they were handing out the Kool-Aid).
Either way, for me, for this price, it’s definitely worth it.
