Best Buy and LG Electronics have been accused of falsely marketing LG LED Televisions as having refresh rates much higher than the actual number, and are now involved in a class action lawsuit.
According to the lawsuit, the televisions refresh rates are advertised as 120Hz and 240Hz, when the actual numbers are much lower; “A television’s refresh rate is directly linked to picture quality…Due to the advanced technology required to achieve refresh rates higher than 60, higher refresh rates are directly, demonstrably and mathematically linked to higher prices.”
Deceptively advertising higher refresh rates is equivalent to marketing a 48-inch television as a 55-inch television.
The plaintiff of this lawsuit seeks restitution for all consumers that were scammed by Best Buy and LG Electronics deceptive marketing and labeling tactics.
