Best answer: Almost all tv’s rate their refresh rate at double the real rate. The actual refresh rate, like many newer tv’s is 60 Hz... but don’t let that scare you.
It’s a higher end model line and has an excellent processor and software for handling motion. Refresh rates have become a less important thing that in years gone by. It used to be a really big thing to me, but I’ve researched enough to realize it ain’t a biggee these days.
rtngs.com is an excellent resource for review of any tv and this what they say about the motion rate of the 800H:
Gamers will appreciate the incredibly low input lag, but unfortunately, it doesn't support any variable refresh rate technology...
The X800H has a 60Hz panel and can interpolate lower frame rate content up to 60Hz. Content with fast-moving objects looks good....”
I looked at
Vizio m quantum -not good off-angle viewing And not available when I bought my Sony.
Samsung Nanocell -they have a device called a 1 connect containing all the hdmi ports. These go bad and cost$100+ to replace, and that’s what went wrong with my 5y/o Samsung. I don’t want that 1 connect in another tv.
I watch a lot of TV or Home Theater. And image quality is very important to me; I’m happy with the picture. I have a Roku so the built-in Chromecast isn’t something I use, but some may find all the apps useful.
The Sony is the right size for my small living room and does a good job with glare reduction for nearby windows. Our seats are the only ones in the house that see the tv directly, so off angle viewing is essential if we have guests.
My research was extensive and I wouldn’t/didn’t want any other tv on the market right now...but...there are many good ones out there. If your needs aren’t like mine, some might fit those needs better.
Overall, you won’t be disappointed if you buy this TV. It’s worth the money.
Hope this not only answers the question but provides other useful information.
