quick answer, higher the better
Higher is better
higher means the picture refreshes more often, which means a clearer and blur free picture.
This is a good article on refresh rates, it's American so read 25hz and 50Hz for UK instead of 30 and 60Hz but otherwise it's accurate. Guide to TV Refresh rates
50 hz all you need. Unless you got xray vision or from Mars.
Hz means not a lot now due to the bs tv companies come out with. It could mean anything from video signal fresh rates to how fast it processes the picture. 800Hz does not mean the display panel doesn't lag. Stuff to look out for is the video lag/delay in milliseconds and the Grey to Grey response time of the LCD panel. Then you have all the rest of the time measurement of how quick the video processing hardware is and how fast the LCD panel is for various tasks.
Add on input refresh rates like 24fps 50fps 60fps 100fps 3d 120fps 3d.
Then the new codecs and interfaces such as HEVC and HDMI 2.0 which is 60fps at ultraHD or 30fps on the old ultraHD sets.

Hz is basically cycles per second and can be used to cover pretty much anything time related.
It's just an easy way to confuse the customer :(
50hz PAL and 60Hz NTSC come from the mains frequencies of the respective countries. TV's used to have crap oscillators so they used a fly wheel oscillator to lock to the mains frequency, it was just a cheap accurate way of doing it :)
