Key Features

4K Ultra HD Technology

Remember how excited you were the first time you saw HD? Multiply that by four and you’ll understand 4K Ultra HD from Seiki. With over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160) compared to about 2 million (1,920 x 1,080) on your current HDTV, the picture provides stunning clarity and colors that far surpass anything you’ve seen before. Put simply, you have to see it to believe it.

Connect all of your devices

With Ultra HD, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite shows and movies in the best resolution possible—whether it’s SD or HD, DVD or Blu-ray. And as more and more 4K content becomes available in the near future, you’ll be one of the first to see it in its full Ultra HD glory.

Seiki 4K Customer Service

No 4K content? We've got you covered

Most Hollywood movies are produced in 4K Ultra HD but delivered to consumers as HD or lower resolution content. With the new generation of 4K Ultra HDTVs now on the market, the challenge is to transform this legacy content into enhanced 4K digital entertainment experience for the living room. Together with a Seiki 4K Ultra HDTV, U-VISION 4K upscaling HDMI cable offers state-of-the-art video processing and 4K performance enhancements comparable to native 4K. (Sold separately.)

One-Year Replacement Warranty

At Seiki, we believe that when you make a great TV, standing behind it is easy and simple. To us, this means offering a comprehensive one year replacement warranty. If there is an issue with our TV during the first year, we will do our best to provide a resolution. If we are unable to, we promise to replace your TV.

Customer Support

Seiki offers toll-free customer support from its U.S headquarters in California to provide setup and technical assistance to Seiki TV owners.

This review is for the Seiki SE39UY04, a 39" 4k TV

tl;dr 4k@30Hz, under $400, blanking issues, not good for games or videos @ 4k. **UPDATE** 6/20/2014 - Update with SE50UY04 firmware. I now recommend this product.

The old adage, "you get what you pay for" definitely holds true with this product.

First a little about my setup; I am using this TV as a computer monitor for CAD/productivity applications. I do not intend to play games with this TV, but I used to be an avid gamer so I will make a few comments there. While I do watch a decent amount of videos, I do not have any that are 4k, so there would be no advantage over my other TV, although I did watch some snippets for this review. I am using the included HDMI cable **UPDATE** 6/20/2014 - I am using the AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable Supports Ethernet, 3D and Audio Return (3 Feet/0.9 Meter) to connect the HDMI1 input to the HDMI 1.4 port on my laptop (i7-4700MQ, GTX 770M). All of my testing was done at the 4k resolution, because if I wanted a 1080p screen I could choose much cheaper and smaller screens than this one.

Pros:
- 4k (3840 x 2160) resolution.
This is a huge difference in CAD programs. I do a lot less panning, scrolling and zooming in/out, all of which saves time.
- 39" diagonal.
I thought this was going to be a con before I bought it because I sit fairly close to it, but I realized that it is large enough that text is easily readable on the screen (without changing any accessibility settings), and small enough that it still fits on the desk somewhat comfortably.

Works great as a developer monitor too bad it's just 30Hz. I know most people mention the service menu accessed by 0000 but I found there is also an engineering menu by pressing 2947. I was trying to disable the boot animation so I could reduce the startup time but the option doesn't seem to work.

I looked through the firmware image and it's a MIPS process inside running the 2.6.34 kernel and even has some RealTek usb wireless drivers included. If you could find a way to configure networking on the wireless interface you could use telnet which is enabled. It also has an httpd server included but it doesn't do anything useful. The init scripts claim it's a RealTek Linux distribution.

I didn't try to modify boot images or the menu but it should be possible with little work. I just didn't want to attempt it without a way to reflash the image and unbrick it. I'm wondering where the UART is at which I guess might be able to unbrick it if just the menu was broken.

Size Name: 39-Inch Verified Purchase
Considering the 4K content available in this earl stage of the 4K lifespan, I do wonder why others are buying this display. The 4K site states that the viewer needs to be 5 to 6 feet away to see the difference on a 4K screen. That presented no problem for me as I am sitting less the 3 feet away as I type this (which is shortly after the announcement of the HDMI 2.0 standard).

My purpose in buying this unit was solely to use as a PC monitor. I had been using 3 1600x1200 displays rotated into portrait mode because that is how I work -- 3 large text displays, editing code. I became so accustomed to this, anything less is constantly frustrating. Since 1080p displays became a standard, the quality of monitors has dropped and one would have to pay through the nose for higher resolution. 2560x1440 IPS displays have only recently dropped below $500 if you don't care about brand or source.

I've been watching display prices. When the Seikis appeared, I couldn't believe it. I felt there must be a catch but I couldn't find one. I'd been putting off building a new system until certain key components were more affordable, namely displays and 1TB SSDs. When both appeared < $700, I decided to go for it.

I can only detail how they work as a PC monitor. There are drawbacks but they are few.

The first drawback was that from a PC they require 30 Hz input, period. I had attempted to use the built in graphics of the Intel i7 4770K CPU. The i7 supports 4K but only at a max of 24 Hz. The Seiki reported to the system that 24 Hz was supported but it could not be displayed, the Seiki reported signal issues and I could only see corrupted glimpses of the desktop every few seconds. I supplied a graphics card that supported 4K and multiple timings and the Seiki was happy.

I'm really happy with it, but i have a few reservations about recommending it wholesale to just anyone. The SEIKI 39" 4k "TV" still has limitations as a computer monitor. It has HDMI 1.4b inputs, which means it can only support 30Hz at 4k resolution. Hopefully future revisions of this display support HDMI 2.0, or add DisplayPort connections to enable 60Hz. I hear this is a big deal for gaming, but I don't notice it in my daily web developer workflow.

The display visual quality is great, not color perfect for photography, but close enough for any general dev and web work. It does have a glossy screen, which can be a distraction if you're used to matte displays or have a bright work environment.

At 39" it is about 110dpi, which is 10dpi higher than my previous 3 dell ultrasharp fp2001 21" 1600x1200 monitors which were ~96dpi. Text and curves are smoother now. It's essentially like having 4 20" 1080p monitors without bezels. I appreciate that I benefit from the extra pixel real estate here rather than a dpi bump of the other brands 30" 4k monitors.

The hugest improvement to my workflow is thanks to the incredible 2160 vertical pixels. That means less scrolling text in code files, less scrolling for long web pages, or in my case, plenty of room for a 1080p sized window with a 1080p sized F12 dev tools or firebug window embedded into the same window. AMAZING! Excel and PHPMyAdmin are easier than ever to digest information full screen at 4k resolution for database tables with a lot of columns and rows.

I was already accustomed to using the windows app "GridMove" to break up the large monitor into smaller virtual window spaces that i can maximize windows to instantly with keyboard shortcuts.
