What is the Vizio Refresh Rate Class Action Lawsuit About?
A $3,000,000 Class Action Settlement has been reached with Vizio over allegations that certain Vizio TV's sold in California at any time after April 30, 2014 were falsely advertised as performing with faster refresh rates than they actually did. The particular Vizio TV's included in the class action lawsuit are those that were labeled as having either a "120Hz Effective Refresh Rates" or a "240Hz Effective Refresh Rate". The class action settlement is over claims that these Vizio televisions were advertised deceptively using misleading advertising practices. According to the Vizio class action lawsuit, the advertised refresh rates may have violated several laws including the California Unfair Competition Law and the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act.
According to the Vizio Television Class Action Lawsuit, the issue alleged was that the Vizio refresh rates were not as fast as they were advertised at 120Hz or 240Hz, respectively. The "effective" refresh rate was as fast as the labeled number, due to the way motion blurring affects motion blur, reducing the perceived refresh rate of screens. However, while the "effective" refresh rate was as advertised, the actual refresh rate was lower.
