1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: Decent price, ok picture.

Cons: Refresh rate of 120hz is completely untrue. It will do 60hz with a lot of lines during motion.
Can not get the 4k to work no matter what I try.
TV started to make weird noises when turned on while making no other sounds.
Customer service refuses to warranty it because the newegg invoice is apparently not sufficient to prove the purchase.
Spend the extra money and avoid this tv at all costs.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Monitor = 4 in 1

Pros: If you are looking to push 3840 x 2160 then look no further. I was skeptical at first with the price thinking you get what you pay for, but this monitor is a godsend and its size/resolution/price is unmatched! It is literally 4 monitors (1920x1080) in one! The 39” makes 4k resolution on a pc highly productive, if you are used to 1920x1080 on a 22” or 23” this is identical text size but 4x the area - AMAZING! I have 8 windows open at once in comfortable view. I highly recommend pushing this with the VisionTek Radeon HD 7750 2GB – it supports 2 of these monitors in full 3840x2160 over a single HDMI cable each. If you are a developer, IT admin, or need multi windows then buy this now - once people understand what this is and how it looks it’s going to sell out fast.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsMust have for Engineering

Pros: THE COST. Nothing else comes close. Despite its idiosyncrasies, most of which Seiki could probably fix with a firmware upgrade (I have 2/14/2014 version), this is still an unbelievable buy. No one should use a monitor over 24" unless its resolution exceeds 1920x1080. This monitor allows me to read full size engineering drawings (42x30 in real life) without zooming in, which is a huge time saver.

My settings are as follows to get a reasonable color rendering:
USER: Contrast 52, Brightness 48, Color 39, Tint 0, Sharpness 0, Color Temp Normal, Blue Screen Off
SETUP: Noise Reduction Off

In the Special Service Menu 0000
Other Settings: TI Mode Off, Swap Mode Off, Backlight 40, Uart Mode Off
LVDS: On, 8, 66K, Off, 1995
DDR Spread: On, 7, 47, 0
VGA Debug: 0, 4400, 2250, 0, 0
Color Temp: HDMI1, Normal, 131, 124, 127, (Offsets) 495, 510, 504
Video Quality: User, 52, 48, 0, 39, Off, Normal

These settings give decent color photographs, but not ideal. As I use this for business apps, it's not an issue.

I'm using a cheap XFX R7-240A-CLH4 Radeon R7 240 2GB video card. Don't expect to stream 4K video and have this card keep up however, but it runs cool and is passively cooled.

Cons: This is a TV, which means you need the remote to turn it on; you can't move your mouse and have it wake up. If you have more than one monitor, when this one goes off, Windows thinks it's disconnected and really screws up your windows, icons, etc (see work around below). Also, the most annoying problem is the backlight; in the special service menu (Menu then 0000 on the remote) the backlight will say 40, but it's really 100; as soon as you go up to 41, then it fixes itself. But! you have to do this every time you turn on the TV.

From time to time the monitor starts a 60 second countdown to turn off; make sure you have the remote nearby. I'm not sure what causes it, but it happen a few times a week.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you get AutoHotKey for Windows so you can write scripts to arrange windows with hot keys. If you have more than one monitor and the Seiki is your primary, this is a must have, otherwise you have to reconfigure your windows every time the monitor turns off.

4 out of 5 eggsR7 240 PC graphics card did 4K nicely

Pros: Light weight, bright, includes 4K-worthy HDMI cable, good viewing angle means corners do not look dark even if you sit close to monitor. Highly recommended for high-resolution (4K, 8-megapixel, 30Hz refresh rate) non-gaming computer monitor. Probably works great at ordinary 1080p resolution even for gaming, where the monitor can refresh at 60 or 120Hz or whatever..

Cons: Out of box the monitor turns itself off when the computer tries to merely put the monitor to sleep. This means the user has to turn the monitor back on with the remote control after a computer has attempted to simply put it in power-save mode, a mild annoyance that people seem to quickly get used to. Will check to see if there is some way to fool around with that in the secret "advanced" menu that you get to by pressing MENU, then typing in 0000.

Only learned about how to turn off the auto-shutoff after many hours, from other reviewers here.

Other Thoughts: Important to turn off the sharpness, i.e. set it to zero, at least when using this thing at 4K resolution with Microsoft Windows. Otherwise bright sharpening halos appear around small dark text characters (that some users don't even notice).

Put in a power-hungry dual fan GTX 660 video card for one 4K resolution user. Worked great but in retrospect seemed overkill (since had to change out the power supply so as to get multiple extra power cables for the video card which can also draw high wattage). Next user, Newegg has a FANLESS R7 240 video card for something like $70 dollars that works great at 4K resolution and probably draws about 25 watts.

Look forward to updating firmware via USB slot and the advanced menu.

1 out of 5 eggsBad experience for me

Pros: It is a 4k for 300-500 dollars. If it worked it would give good space for doing coding work etc on my PC.

Cons: The first one sent to me had rattling parts inside it. It turned on but I RMA'ed it since it had something broke in it.

The second one came and did not have that issue. The screws that screw in to the base strip super easy. The plastic piece that goes along the top of the tv easily can be pulled away from the tv \ cheap easy to break. The buttons for the input on the side of the tv are cheap as well. The included HDMI cable while looking cool with blue braided cord did not display anything when hooked between my PC and the TV. Another cheap cord I had laying around did.

Now I can look past all of that....if it worked. But putting a good HDMI cable between my brand new 2k computer and this tv resulted in the image showing fine for a few minutes then every 30 -60 seconds the screen goes blank the image then redisplays and the TV displays in the upper right corner the resolution and refresh. So it is like the tv thinks it needed to change resolution (similar to if you had changed inputs).

Now I hook the PC to my other Vizio 60 inch tv and no problems, same PC, same cord, doing the same things on the computer - no black screens.

Hard to resist for the price but man what a junk paper weight.

That said I do have a co-worker who has one at work and uses it daily without the issue. The main thing he sees is the mouse lag. He uses it for coding and has his work PC hooked to it.

Take your chances if you want but know what you might end up with.

Other Thoughts: Now shopping for a real monitor

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!
