Enter the new Seiki Pro 40" display, which is actually being marketed as a computer monitor rather than a television. For me this monitor has proven to be full of awesome cakes. It is true that there are other 4k monitors out there -- some that are even cheaper (which is normally Seiki's thing). But at 40", this monitor is bigger. The key point here is that a 40" 4k monitor is not a "retina"-like display. You can use it at native resolution, unlike my 15" macbook pro, which has a screen resolution of 2880x1800, but Apple defaults to having it behave like a very well aliased 1440x900 display. What this means for me is that I get more data visible at once rather than the insanely crisp images of a smaller screen at the same resolution. For me this is perfect, but you might be looking for the "retina"-like effect, so you may prefer a smaller 4k display. You might also not have the room or desire to have something this big on your desk. It's a matter of taste, but just be aware that at 2-3 feet away, a 40" display is in fact massive.
That said, the picture is sharp. 111dpi isn't "retina", but it's still sharper than a 30" 2560x1600 panel. It's got a slightly better picture quality than the 39" mentioned earlier -- and I like that display too. Texts are clear. Colors seem great for my purposes, but note I am not a graphics artist, so admittedly I am not as picky here. It has really neat PIP and multiple input options that I am not using, I could see the using four inputs at 1080p displaying simultaneously as a useful feature for someone else. The 60Hz refresh is snappy. The built in stand is "no frills", but is solid, comes set to a sane height, and if you really wanted it has a VESA mount so you could replace the stand.
I have one minor complaint, and that is that the menu/settings interface is painful. There are plenty of options, but the button presses to navigate are just horrible. This is actually very typical of monitors, but given the features such as PIP that you might want to set/change often, it's kind of a downside. It's unconventional, but it feels like it should have had a remote control (even a wired on that slotted into the base on the stand for storage would have been nicer). Other than that, you might want to wait for Seiki to rerelease this display with HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.3. For my purposes, Display Port 1.2 is good enough, but Seiki has promised the updated specifications. There are a couple of minor one-time quirks that you should be aware of just so you don't spend time banging your head during initial setup. First, there is a physical power supply switch next to the place the power cord plugs in. This ships in the off position. If you don't flip this switch, the monitor will not power on. Not noticing this could lead you to believe that the display was DOA. Second, the display has a setting in the menus for Display Port version. It defaults to 1.1. You will not get 60Hz at 4k resolution if you do not change this setting. I also had to reboot my mac after changing the setting to get the computer to notice. Your mileage may vary in terms of needing to reboot, but you will need to change the setting. Lastly, I took the advice of another review and bought a better display port cord when I ordered this. I never tried the one that came with it, but the Cable Matters® Gold Plated DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable 10 Feet - 4K Resolution Ready I bought with the monitor is working great.
All and all, if you actually want a display that is this large, this is a solid choice. I am quite happy with my purchase, and would recommend it, with the size caution given. The only caveat I would have is that depending on your use case, you might be willing to buy the older 39" television I referenced, quirks and all, for quite a bit less money.
(the attached image shows my cluttered desk -- this monitor is in the center, the 39" TV (older) on the right. Above it is an old Dell 30" display, and left is a rotated 20" display. The iPad mini and keyboard should give you an idea of relative scale.)
Since this doesn't seem to be available on Seiki's website, this is the manual: http://tinyurl.com/pn27ex7
I was a bit leery about buying this monitor, since I really didn't know anything about Seiki. I was tempted to go for the Phillips 40" UHD monitor, but read a few damning reviews on it that scared me, so I opted with the only other real option for a UHD monitor in the 40" class—this one. (The TVs just didn't cut it for me.)
If you're looking for high DPI, you'll want to buy a smaller monitor. As I have ready many times in other reviews, 40" is the way to go for a UHD if you're looking for working space. I think that anything smaller will make you want scale objects on your screen, resulting in high DPI and not more screen space. Anything bigger than 40" (unless you're sitting farther away than normal) will span beyond the range of your vision without needing to turn your head to see the entire screen.
My favorite feature of this monitor is the massive amount of space that I have to work on. I mean, this thing is HUGE! I replaced two 25" monitors with this, and I feel like I have double the space that I used to. (Technically, I pretty much do.) I mean—let me put this in perspective: this is the size of FOUR High Definition Televisions. I felt stupid browsing the web with a single web page open, because there was so much unused space around it. I opened a bunch of other apps just so my screen wouldn't look barren. If you are a multi-tasker like I usually am, this is for you.
The display quality is excellent. I have no reason to disbelieve the specs: there are no noticeable visual anomalies or defects, and the images are bright, crisp and a pleasure to work with.
This monitor has a killer feature that I knew this had, but I didn't realize the usefulness of it until I had it in my house. It is the Picture-by-Picture mode. This feature allows you to display multiple independent inputs on the screen simultaneously—up to four. So, I hook up my work laptop with two inputs to the monitor and get two windows displays side by side, that seamlessly connect together, each at 1920x1080. (And I mean seamlessly. I can open a wide window across the entire lower half of the display for a total width of 3840 pixels without so much as a line in the middle.) I use the other two from my MacBook Pro and get two displays from that on the screen, also at 1920x1080 each. So, basically, I have four full 20" displays in front of me, each at 1920x1080, and I am able to work from home with a better display than is built into my laptop, and still have two additional screens on my MacBook Pro (in addition to the built-in screen) for iTunes, Web Browsers or whatever. This monitor gives you a lot of space with even two computers!
You may notice that I did not give it five stars, and that's because there is room for improvement. First, the controls are a bit awkward to use. They are touch sensitive and clearly labelled (unlike my previous Samsungs which I could not read without a strong light), which is good, but one touch sometimes makes them jump zero or two selections. It would be nice if you could "feel" a button or bump under your finger so it wouldn't drift while you're watching your screen while hitting buttons. Some of the controls are a bit cumbersome to bring up as well—switching between normal mode and Picture-by-Picture-4Win mode requires a lot of screen presses. A hot key for favorite settings would be nice.
Some of the controls are not as intuitive as I would like. I was a bit confused about how to configure which input corresponds to which quadrant in the Picture-by-Picture mode, but after experimentation, you eventually get it figured out.
A few of the tech specs could be a bit better. HDMI 2.0 would have been a nice touch—it does not support it. I guess that's not a big deal for me since my MacBook Pro doesn't support it either, but one day I will probably want it. I also found that I cannot do DP1.2 from my work laptop. I am not sure if that is a limitation of my laptop or the monitor; however, I am able to use DP1.2 with full resolution at 60Hz refresh from my MacBook Pro just fine. I suspect that the monitor supports it just fine, and my work laptop is at fault.
The monitor is extremely easy to assemble, and ports are clearly labelled. I really didn't need the instructions to set it up or operate it, but I am a very technical person.
Finally, I can't end this without commenting on the price. This monitor was only ~$850 when I bought it. Given all the features, the quality of the display, and the HUGEness of it all, this is really a great price.
I would strongly recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a lot of screen space to work, or looking for good screen space with multiple computers in a somewhat limited space.
Disclaimer: I have had this monitor for three days at the time that I am writing this, so I cannot comment on its reliability yet. Fingers crossed…
After turning ON the DP 1.2 setting in the menu and changing my NVidia settings for 60Hz, I put on a gradient image to test the smoothness of color rendering out of the box. The difference from the older SEIKI S39UY04 was night and day. Gone are the weird color steps and setbacks of the previous model.
Out of the box the monitor is set at 9300K. Once set to 6500K, the actual reading was 6250K. Not bad for factory calibration.
Calibration of the monitor was made with an X-Rite i1Pro 2 using both i1Profiler and basICColor display 5 software. See the results in the included image. I’m quite happy with the monitor so far.
Good work SEIKI!!!
