  • A. The RCA web page, http://tv.rca.com/product/spec.asp?modelnum=40LA45RQ , does not provide this data, although there is LOTS of other specs listed there.... I would conclude this means it is 60 HZ refresh rate. If it were newer/better, they would list it.

  • A. After shopping and researching tv's for a year in anticipation of black Friday sales, I have found that if the specifications or descriptions don't pointedly say 120Hz then it is 60. I think it's deceptive marketing to leave that very important piece of information out and hope that people won't ask.

  • A. RCA does not disclose the refresh rate in their user manual nor in their product brochure. Instead, they cite a Refresh Rate of 6.5 ms. Since RCA specs and web site boast of 120hz refresh rate on the larger models, this one is almost certainly 60hz at this price point. One web site review already calls this TV "Over The Hill", in terms of design and specifications.

I'm very pleased with this TV. It's my first HDTV so I wasn't sure of what to expect beyond a better and clearer picture, which is a monumental upgrade from my old box TV. The owner's manual was easy to read making the set up a breeze. I plugged it in and turned it on. WOW!! The colors are vibrant and clear. When the HD picture fills up the screen it looks, well, HUGE! I had to look at the box again to see if it was truly a 40" or if they had sent me a 42" or maybe a 46" TV by mistake because the picture looked much larger. Nope, it's the 40" TV I ordered. I easily attached my Roku internet streaming device via a HDMI cable to stream movies from the internet and it worked perfectly. I checked out the site reviews before ordering this TV and read the sound quality concerns by customers. I hear NO problems with the sound. The sound is clear with no distortion whatsoever. RCA has been around a long time and continues to make great products. This is a real bargain for the money. In fact, it's a steal for the money. You won't be disappointed.

First off - dynamic contrast... terrible. There are very few TV's i've seen that get dynamic contrast right, and they all begin with "samsung", and even then, only at the high end. Do yourself the favor and turn it OFF. (this is a separate setting in the video settings, from the scene mode selection) Set DC to off, and color temp to warm, and the picture quality becomes pretty impressive. If you have the mans (ie: the tool) - calibrate the set. Secondly - this new RCA model TV will NOT work with your FIOS remote. until and unless someone updates things - you'll be stuck either buying a good universal, or you'll have to live with 2 remotes to change channels and volume. Other than that - very nice set, and i would recommend - especially at the sub-400.00 price point i snagged this at.

This is a great tv for the price. The picture quality is a lot better than the Sanyo of about the same size. It has plenty of hookups for all the different electronic gizmos. I only have two complaints: 1. The sound quality is not that great which seems to be a common complaint of almost all flat screens, however, it is still better than our other tv (Sanyo). 2. The simple wall mount bracket that is recommended for this tv doesn't really fit. The vertical part of the bracket that bolts to the tv isn't long enough to attach to all four bolt holes. I made mine work but only with some spare bracket material I had in my workshop. Overall, if I could do it all over again I would have gotten two of these and ditched the Sanyo.

Well worth the cost. Excellent picture, but rather poor sound as adjusted by factory. It is possible, however, to readjust the audio frequencies by using manual user controls to improve sound quality considerably. Also, unlike other LCD sets, this one has a glossy screen (not matte).

This RCA TV is a wonderful product. Great picture and sound, good price. If you are not in a hurry for your order, it is great to order online and pick up at store when you want to. Much better selection online also.
