The 2018 lawsuit alleged that Vizio misled consumers by using the term “effective refresh rate,” which generally describes the result achieved through software processing rather than the TV’s actual, native refresh rate. Most of the Vizio TVs in question have a native 60Hz refresh rate instead of the advertised 120Hz or 240Hz.

What does the settlement offer? For up to $50 per qualifying TV (depending on the number of claims filed), Vizio must stop using misleading refresh rate terms and provide enhanced services and a limited one-year warranty to all TV owners.

Vizio denies any wrongdoing but agreed to the settlement to avoid legal fees.
