How does this compare to the LG 43LF5400? Looks like the actual refresh rate is 60 hz.

Genuine question here.. how could you tell that it is 60Hz? The product (eBay) link says that the "Effective Refresh Rate" is 120Hz.

I tried looking at Amazon and it also says the same.. unless I am missing something.

They looked it up on rtings- a reputable tv review site. When you look at a tv, if it says anything before the refresh rate, i.e. "Effective refresh rate" or "true motion rate" it is probably referencing what the manufacturer defines the refresh rate as. I think they use software gimmicks and claim they increase the true refresh rate of the panel- here's a quick guide

Also you can read the review of whatever tv you like on rtings and they will break down nearly every aspect of the tv for you.

Depends on what is important to you- watch a lot of Netflix and such? It's nice for me to not have to grab another remote or cast it from my phone to the tv... Just hit Netflix and go. Then Smarttv may be worth it to you. But I only use mine to stream Amazon video, Netflix and music to my audio receiver- so I don't use the smart tv fully. I could live without it as I have a old chrome cast.

As for 4K, it makes a huge different if you invest in a TV and watch true 4K programming. My tv upscales 1080 to near 4K and it makes a small difference (Comcast cable service). But the 4K programs are crazy different- it actually took some time for my eyes to get used to it.

I would go with 4K over smart tv at this point- for $30 you can pick up a firestick or chrome cast and make it almost a smart TV, there is no way to cheaply upgrade to 4K

Ah, gotcha. Thank you for the detailed explanation. I have been looking to get a decent sized (40"-50") lower end TV for some time now and this seemed like a good deal if it were a true 120Hz refresh rate TV. I guess I'll wait!

That's awesome. Thank you. 4K would definitely be what I would go with I think.
