Is this a real 120 Hz refresh rate or fake "effective" refresh rate?

Here are some specs. Doesn't really clarify much of anything. At a glance 240 cd/m² seems really really poor. Am I missing something there.

I read the user manual and it still says 120 Hz, no asterisk or any verbiage about effective rates or any BS.

A brightness of "250" is what "older" LCD TVs with florescent lighting would have. 240 seems very low for an LED LCD display. Perhaps that is a mistake? I bought it and will pick it up later today. If It doesn't perform well, I'll return it within the 14 day return period.

Not a lot of reviews but the few there are on their site are pretty favorable. $399 for a 50" 120Hz tv is a preety good deal.

I have a relatively new 39' Insignia and have to say that I got what I paid for. It feels cheaply made. The sound is bad and seems to noticeably adjust itself more than what I would call normal. Probably true for all TVs these days tho. Some weird issues: The HDMI ports (all 2 or 3 of them) had problems running my Chromecast. Specifically the CEC functionality - it worked for a week or two then stopped working altogether. Then Netflix would not start without a 'reboot' of the TV, which I thought was pretty random as every other app seemed to work fine. The Chromecast/Netflix had no issues on any other TV so pretty sure it's this TV. No other HDMI problems. And then sometimes the thing will take a few pushes of the button to turn on, I don't think this is the remote as I see lights changing on the TV when the button is pushed, but nothing happens.

But the picture is pretty good.

Bottom line, as a bedroom/guestroom TV it works but I told myself I would never buy another Insignia ever.

To compare I have a 32' Sceptre that runs circles around this Insignia in all aspects.

Not sure on the model# of mine at the moment but can get it if anyone is interested.

If this model is the same as the sharp, then yes it is the real 120hz.

Got 2 insignia and it's a good value. Overall good TV quality, but it is basic.
