I would look at the monitors “response time” (the time it takes to display moving images)
The specs for the 43S for example have it at 5 milliseconds which is good, especially for gaming.
The faster the response time the less “ghosting” you experience.
What's the difference between response time and refresh rate?
Well both work hand in hand with each other to reduce blur.

(From what I understand) The refresh rate is measured by how long a video frame or pixel is displayed on screen and the response time is measured by how long it takes a pixel to go from one shade of light/colour to another.
