2 out of 5 eggsFactory Packed incorrectly

Pros: Works great. Amazing detail.

Cons: It was packed incorrectly at the factory; the TV was in front of the foam backets that are supposed to position the top of the unit within the box. So it was shipped with the the front of the TV against the box, and the unit had shifted up to the top of the box leaving a 4-5" gap where the unit could move freely during shipping.
The unit moved inside the box enough to nearly destroy the protective stick-on plastic film, but the frame and display was unmarked once the film was removed.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it seems to be a good unit. I think I got very lucky that UPS handled the package well and it didn't receive any punctures to the front of the box (which would have damaged the display).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: 4K resolution is wonderful for photo editing. I don't have to zoom in to check sharpness. Color is accurate after calibration with ColorMunki.

Cons: The amount of research I had to do for optimal set up as a monitor. Out of the box I was ready to return it. But a search quickly returned the tip of setting sharpness to zero. Next, I had to update the firmware to get the backlight control, which I have set to 50. And then the calibration with ColorMunki took 3 attempts; I had to tilt the screen back 30 degrees to get the sensor to sit flush.

I have a recent NVidia GTX 660 graphics card that easily handles 4k, but I had to experiment with the settings (using RGB output, not YCrBr).

Other Thoughts: There is some mouse lag, but it is almost unnoticeable for what I do. I am not gaming, so cannot comment on suitability for that.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good value for the price (but not quite there yet)

Pros: 4K at a price that is hard to beat.
As a TV, this deserves 5 stars.

Cons: If you use this monitor for text-based work, you will notice notable aliasing and ghosting. This is particularly obvious for black text on white background.

To reduce it, turn the "sharpness" in the setup menu to 0. I assume Seiki has a built-in sharpening filter that plays havoc with vector images. Setting the sharpness to 0 reduces this but does not eliminate it altogether. So, in summary, this monitor is not quite there yet for text or graphic work.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for work

Pros: 4K(30Hz) resolution at reasonable price.
Also a very good HD monitor (120Hz)

Cons: 4K@30Hz only, no HDMI 2.0 or Display port support for 4k@60Hz.

Other Thoughts: It is a nice 4K monitor for work related tasks. HDMI is the only way to get 4K@30Hz to work. If you use Windows 7/8, you may want to get a HDMI adapter to disable monitor detection (search eb ay with "monitor detection") to workaround an special "feature" in Windows 7/8.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Firmware!

Pros: does 4k

Cons: Turns itself off every 6 hours with the timer circuit set to the OFF position meaning it should never turn off until the user manually presses the off button.

Other Thoughts: Amazing that no other reviewer has noticed this obvious DEFECT!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Desktop Sized.
Great 2K Resolution.
Perfect for TV, Pictures, Documents.
Much landscape!

Cons: HDMI in this unit is 30 FPS Only.
The 120Hz rating is a misleading advertising ploy. 120Hz /4 (1080p areas) = 30Hz (FPS).
Jitter and motion blur as a performance desktop monitor.

Other Thoughts: I tried everything to reduce Jitter to an acceptable level (videocard drivers update, Seiki monitor update x2, NVidia customizing - even a videocard upgrade to GFX-780!) I like the unit very much, but am unable to keep it. RMA City. Looking for a 2K x 60Hz replacement.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent TV or Monitor

Pros: I absolutely love this TV. Everything about it has made me happy. It actually exceeded my expectations. And for the price I cannot be happier. The 4k video mode is precisely as crisp as my original 22" computer LCD screen. I was not expecting it to look this well as I have used hi-def TV's as monitors before but this is the first one that actually has the quality of a regular computer screen. It feels like I have the desktop real estate of approximately four computer monitors but without any seams. As a programmer, the extra space is useful as I can layout all of my files at once without overlap and doing so assists greatly with productivity.

When I finally located a true 4k video that matched the resolution of the screen I was literally blown out of my chair and across the room by the stunning quality.

Cons: In 1080p this monitor is blazing fast and most media is already in 1080p so as expected it looks incredible. Gaming is smooth and very responsive. You will notice the upscaling because unlike on a 1080p screen there are more pixels in there so the artifacts do exist, sit a few feet back and you can't see them at all. Better than any HD TV I've ever seen.

In 4k resolution everything is crisp and beautiful, however 30hz may affect your decision. It certainly won't get in your way and personally I don't mind it when I'm gaming. However, if you are an elitist screen aficionado then you probably cringe at anything under 120hz, this monitor will probably make you want to give up your first born child. However, if you can't really tell the difference between 55hz 60hz 65hz 75hz or 120hz then do not fear the 30hz rate you will get used to it very fast as it is not really that noticeable if you are doing work and not actively analyzing the refresh rate under a microscope.

The most noticeable disadvantage I've had so far is the desktop is so big it takes a couple flicks to get my mouse across the screen even on high sensitivity.

This monitor is excellent and for the price it cannot be beat.

Other Thoughts: No regrets! Quality and surprisingly useful.

Make sure your video card can handle the screen resolution. I upgraded to a GTX 760.

4 out of 5 eggsAn all-around good deal for a developer

Pros: I am a developer and use this for telnet/ssh sessions, Developer GUIs, and web surfing mostly. The mouse lag (very little) for me is irrelevant for these tasks. The text is crisp and clear for the above tasks. I started using the Seiki to watch 1080P Netflix and saw no issue or tearing. 4K content will tear for some youtube videos and and not at all for others. I was able to adjust the backlight to a good level in the service menu - so not an issue.

Cons: The mandatory 3 hour power-off is easily shutoff in the service menu. Also, if you have multiple monitors, the Seiki disappears when it is powered off, so you need to turn off your monitors in sequence or when you power back on, your windows will have shifted to your smaller monitor, then back to the Seiki, resizing them.

Other Thoughts: The price keeps dropping. I got it at $380 three weeks ago, but now I see it somewhere at $300. At $300 you just have to buy.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat specs for UHD TV

Pros: a) great UHD TV specs wise , but poor gaming specs ( so don't buy this for gaming as refresh rate is very poor - below 30MHTZ)
b) I got it cheapest pirce on special , so was worth it for Bedroom TV
so for TV programs ( 1080p) is great and best color on stations with FULL HD broadcast!
NEWEGG ROCKS for CS issues / RMA and returns is still best in industry!!!

Cons: a) gaming sucks on this ( or the 55inch which I returned to newegg)
b) No TV programs breoadcast in UHD yet so cannt test that specs but in 1080P = great colour.
c) remote code is not compatable with my LG magic remote NOR does Comsat X1 remote work. so have to use generic codes.
d) support sucks ( as I had missing versa screws and they told me to BUY it !!!) I know its small $$$ but its the principle of things. Took them 3 weeks to answer my emaiuls and it seems someone cannt read ENGLISH nor write a decent English sentances!!!
This taking off two stars

Other Thoughts: for price I paid below 300$ - was worth it for Blueray movies, colour is super nice !!
