📺TCL® agreed to a $2.9 million settlement over it's TV false advertising claims.
TCL is headquartered in Corona, California and sells televisions throughout the United States through numerous retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart. It's one of the leading sellers of TVs in the United States.
The claim alleges that the company misled consumers by falsely advertising TCL TV's. The class action lawsuit alleged, on behalf of consumers, that TCL advertised certain TV's as "120Hz CMI", "120Hz Clear Motion Index", and/or "120Hz CMI Effective Refresh Rate" when they had 60Hz native refresh rates.
A refresh rate marked as "Hz" is the frequency at which a display is capable of updating pixel values for every pixel on the screen. More simply stated, it means the rate at which a new image can be drawn onto the entire TV screen.
You can be included in this settlement if you purchased a new TCL Television between April 24, 2016, and December 31, 2021, marketed or labeled as having a “Hz” (or hertz) rating twice as high as its native panel refresh rate (Hz) in the state of California.
Claimants who submit a valid claim in time will be eligible for cash reimbursement. No proof is needed in this class action settlement. A cash reward will be $15 per valid claim form, but it could be increased based on a pro-rata basis up to $40, depending on the number of approved and qualified claims submitted.
