Answer:
This monitor is really a tv. You can use it as a monitor (I do) but realize the limitations. 1.) it only has hdmi 1.4a ports for hidef - no displayport or hdmi 2.0. That limits it to 30Hz at 4k resolutions (120hz @ 1080p). 2.) when your computer powers down monitors for energy savings, this one doesn't understand th… see more This monitor is really a tv. You can use it as a monitor (I do) but realize the limitations. 1.) it only has hdmi 1.4a ports for hidef - no displayport or hdmi 2.0. That limits it to 30Hz at 4k resolutions (120hz @ 1080p). 2.) when your computer powers down monitors for energy savings, this one doesn't understand the protocol (remember it's designed as TV, not a monitor). When you later hit a key for the display to turn on, it doesn't - you have to hit the "power on" button on the side or the remote to turn it back on. This also sometimes causes grief with some vid cards & resets the seiki to 1024x768 resolution. Most of the times you can set it back to 4k, but sometimes it takes a reboot for the card to accept the 4k setting again. Annoyances, but the joy of sitting in front of a 4k computer screen makes it all tolerable. see less

Answer:
If you have an Intel Haswell CPU, you might not need a video card at all... the CPU can drive a 4K display on its own. Check your computer's manual for details.

I use the Seiki SE39UY04 as a computer monitor at 3840x2160 resolution.

My video card (a GEFORCE GTX 770M) supports this resolution; you should verify that your video card will support this resolution. I love the Seiki - but there are several caveats: First, the maximum refresh rate is 30 Hz. Gamers will not be satisfied, but I have been happy for all business work and for playing videos in both window and in full screen mode. Second, as a monitor, you will want the monitor near to you. Turn brightness down a bit and set sharpness to 0. Third, while color matching is excellent to my eye, anyone doing professional color work would be unsatisfied. Fourth, the monitor powers off on its own every 4 hours. I believe there is a firmware update that may address this but I have not wanted to fiddle with something that otherwise works extremely well.
All in all, I can heartily recommend using the Seiki as a computer monitor for non-gaming work. (I don't play games, so I would leave evaluations of its use as a game monitor to others.) I find the 39 inch size ideal for 4K resolution. see less

Answer:
Latest firmware added backlight control & color temp adjustments to the main menu, previously they were only accessible through the 'hidden' factory service menu.

Answer:
Its definitely 4k - I've used mine as a 3840x2160 monitor. Though like almost all 4k sets, only supports up to 30Hz because of HDMI 1.4 bandwidth limitations.

Answer:
Yes! It worked flawlessly in 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) on a Toshiba Satellite laptop P75-A7200 that provides an Intel i7-4700MQ processor with Intel HD Graphics 4600, running Windows 8.1.
I connected an HDMI cable from the laptop to the Seiki SE39UY04 HDMI port 3, used the Seiki remote to switch the Seiki source to HDMI3, … see more

I connected an HDMI cable from the laptop to the Seiki SE39UY04 HDMI port 3, used the Seiki remote to switch the Seiki source to HDMI3, and the Windows display just moved over from the laptop to the Seiki at 4K resolution (the laptop display is 1080p). It just worked. Amazing! I immediately tried some YouTube 4K demo videos (http://www.youtube.com/user/jacobschwarz) and they all started up and switched to 4K UHD after a moment.
Toshiba advertises this laptop as having "HDMI with 4K Ultra HD output capability". see less

Answer:
This is extremely unlikely; it would probably require both a hardware and firmware upgrade.
