5 out of 5 eggsA Nice 4Kx2K montor

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: I have used this 50" TV as a computer montor, and, am quite satisfied with it. It came with a solid durable v1.4 HDMI cable for the Ultra mode.

Cons: A very low humming sound from this TV. It is torable once you get used to it as a monitor. The humming sound ia not noticable if you used it as a TV at a distance. No "display port" exists and the HDMI v1.4 can only support 4Kx2K at 30 Hz, though

Other Thoughts: I have to puirchase a better graphic card to support the 4Kx2K display. Window 8.1 can set the display resolutions without amy problem. For Unix, it took me a while to set the graphics. I have to load the graphic driver from card's Web side.

The default settings for the backligh is full 100 percent. I have to go to the "menu", "0000", "others" and then the "backlight" to lower it. The lowest settings for backlight I can permantely set seems to be only "62" though.

3 out of 5 eggsAdequate

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: For the price this is amazing.

Cons: Can't seem to get my computer to switch to 4k resolution.
Can't get universal remotes to work correctly with TV. LG TV codes seem to be the closest.
Speakers are low quality.
No optical digital audio outs. (Most speaker systems do not have coaxial digital support. I needed to spend $20 for a coaxial to optical converter.)
Changing the TV input requires the OK button to change the input. (see other thought to see why this is unfavorable)

Other Thoughts: 4k doesn't mean much without having 4k content.
I purchased an LG NBN36 sound bar. The TV section on the LG soundbar remote does work with the TV. It just lacks the OK button to change the TV input.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy with this screen

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: For the price you won't find another 4K that works this well

Cons: Don't buy this for 4K gaming, its refresh rate is only 30Hz so you'll be disappointed, its not the right product for that, don't hate it for that.

Other Thoughts: mine is connected to my directv dvr and my surround sound, which has a compute, chromecast and xbox, they all display at 1080P and this TV scales them very well. I ran it higher to test but dropped it back to 1080P since i don't have any 4K content yet.

4 out of 5 eggsNice pic / poor sound

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: Good picture

Cons: Built in speakers only respond to high frequencies. I have heard better sound out of laptop speakers.
Doing anything with the "Pace RNG110" cable box adjusts volume in the direction of the last volume adjustment.

Other Thoughts: A matte finish would have been nicer for anti glare.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for advanced users

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: This TV becomes and excellent pc monitor for those who are willing to put the time in to setting it up.

Cons: For anyone less than an expert this TV is far more hassle than it is worth and will look worse than a similarly priced 1080p TV from a regular brand.

Other Thoughts: The Seiki SE50UY04 is a poor quality TV that has the hidden feature of being an amazing monitor for someone who knows how to unlock its potential.

The monitor comes poorly calibrated, and does a average job of upscaling content from 1080p to 4k. However with the right equipment and some knowhow you can reach a decent calibration using the TV's service menu and you can use a software upscaler to achieve a very good looking picture for video.

The true talent of this monitor comes in its hidden ability to accept a true 120hz signal from a PC at 1080p which results in some of the smoothest gaming you will ever experience. Additionally the 120hz input allows you to use nVidia 3d if you have the kit.

When used as a desktop monitor from about 3-4 feet away, the 4k resolution is breathtaking and slightly overwhelming as you may lose track of where windows are (or your cursor). Gaming in 4k suffers from input lag due to the 30hz refresh rate, but still looks smooth. This TV is best suited for MMOs, and other slow mousing games in 4k, and 120hz@1080p for fast mousing games like RTS and shooters.

The sound quality is laughable and unredeemable, but there is an optical out and a 3.5mm out from the TV to redirect the sound to something good.

Overall this monitor has proved to be exceptionally hard to set up correctly, but very rewarding now that I have done so.

1 out of 5 eggspoor tv

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: none

Cons: I bought a 50" from Seiki and it died with in a month. I bought it in November 29 of 2013 died around xmas and I shipped it back to the manufacturer in end of January and they seem to give good customer service but then i would wait for ever for replies which never happened, the shipping information and my replacement tv.. I would always have to call them to find out what was going on. they never replied to emails or messages. I am still waiting for a tv and if you want your money back good luck. I am still being pulled around by these guys, DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsexcellent PC monitor Average TV

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: price, 4k resolution, many output, simple and easy on the eyes design that even my wife likes. Gaming in 1080p looks very good and if you don't mind playing at 30fps then you can try the 4k resolution too if your Video card is strong enough to handle it. The games that support that resolution look amazing

Cons: sound quality, no build-in hdtv tune. no control buttons on the TV so make sure not to loose the average tv remote controller. no optical output for sound so if you have an older surround sound system with optical but without coaxial you can't get 5.1

Other Thoughts: For the reason I got this TV I am super satisfied. I am happy it is not a smart TV. I have one and I never use those apps anyway. I wish it had build-in tuner because I have basic cable without HD converter and all my other TVs (even my 2006 Samsung) get the HD channels but not this one

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: I bought this for my Blue Ray most B R will be changing to 4K soon. I have a 32 Seiki TV and it has been Fantastic for 4 years now mostly as a Monitor the Color on both TV are very GOOD and there has been no problems at all except the sound is poor but a good amp will take care of that. I use 100 $ head phones with 200 watt amp the only way to Fly. I know 2 people who also have this TV and they love it for Blue Ray or B4.

Cons: The only con is there will NEVER be 4K TV the networks have said NO it would cost Billions to change over again. But this is alot cheaper that buying a regular 32 monitor. For this price there are NO cons it's not cheap but lite for it's size so it is easy to move.

Other Thoughts: The ONLY TV that comes close to the Color or Picture is a Plasma which cost the same but you are stuck with the OLD 1080P. And this is the future and like i said Blue Ray ia a whole different Picture. Because of my 32 TV by Seiki being so GOOD and reliable after 4 years i went for this and playing B4 is a whole different Ball Game like salt and pepper.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap & Simple 4K - Great Monitor for PC

This review is from: Seiki SE50UY04 50" Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: - Great PC Monitor for Gaming
- Not "Smart" (unless you like that kind of thing)
- Not 3D (unless you like bleeding out your eyes)
- Super simple to use and setup - no gimmicks
- Thin bezel and thin depth! (I swear its like 2 inches deep and has 3/4 inch bezels)
- Comes with a 6ft HDMI cable!
- Wall mountable and has a Glass stand included

Cons: - Flimsy. When I pull plugs in the back out, it causes the TV to wobble. Not exactly comforting.
- Speakers are junk. 8W barely pushes anything. No surprise. So make sure to plug up your favorite 2.1/5.1 surround sound.
- Remote only works from about 8 feet away
- Power/AC cord doesn't have the Third(ground) plug. Its just 2 prongs.
- VGA port? It would have been nice if this were a DVI port.
- Black levels are not great. So dark colors tend to blend together.
- For gaming you get +60Hz at 1920x1080 and ~30Hz at 3840x2160. Not that great. But I've heard you can push it to +40Hz with newer GPUs like the R9 290X or 780 Ti.

Other Thoughts: OK.
So this 4K TV is one of the cheapest 4K televisions out there. And there isn't much 4K content to boot. But, I'm just using it to watch Blu Ray movies (which look fantastic on it) and to play Battlefield 4 and other PC games through my Rig on it. I plan on buying a new GPU to get a better view soon, because this TV works amazing as a PC Monitor.

Be cautious of what you're looking for. This TV doesn't have the best picture or sound, but it is a great value for a simple TV and huge Monitor. I've never heard of Seiki before, but they won me over with this TV. Besides, I would never pay $5K for name brand 4K. EVER.
