Seiki "Simply Brilliant"

Seiki believes everyone deserves a well-made TV, and goes to great lengths to make sure its TVs are the highest quality and available at a fair price. Seiki believes the next ‘big thing’ is a great television everyone can afford. One that offers the same clarity of video and audio featured on the higher priced TVs, but without the add-ons that bring the higher price. Seiki is part of one of the largest manufacturers of TVs in the world. This allows Seiki to create considerable efficiencies that it gladly passes along to customers. Seiki believes a no-nonsense TV delivers big on sight and sound. So Seiki starts with only the most advanced panels for the highest picture quality and use high performance amplifiers to power its speakers. Seiki TVs are made in its own facility by its own people. Not only does this cut out a costly middleman, this also allows Seiki to maintain a high level of quality control that meets its own strict standards.

4K doesn't need to cost 5K

Contrary to popular belief, the ultimate television experience is well within reach. By creating a 4K Ultra HDTV with great picture and sound, minus the unnecessary bells and whistles, we’re able to offer the latest television technology at an ultra-affordable price. Introducting Ultra HD for everyone.

Hi-def x 4

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.

Awesome TV amazing monitor

The most affordable, highest resolution screen on the market brings new possibilities to the table—not to mention your computer desk. The same promise of detail and clarity that Seiki 4K brings to your favorite shows, movies, and sports will also be delivered to your workstation, and your online and console gaming experience.

Plays well with others

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.

No 4K content? We've got you covered with U -VISION

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 Up-conversion HDMI cable offers state-of-the-art video processing and 4K performance enhancements comparable to native 4K.

I bought this TV on Black Friday, had it delivered on the Sunday, had it all set up and had returned it by the Tuesday. That in itself says enough, but in-case you want details...

On paper this TV looks like a good choice - not too cheap (I paid £299), 4K, full HD, assembled in the UK, decent range of inputs and outputs (including optical out, which wasnt on the specs anywhere so I was surprised). So why did I decide so quickly to return it?

Firstly the pro's - the picture is sharp, really sharp. Its nice to look at, and has a good range of colours. The build quality is both fair and poor, the stand base is a solid chunk of metal with a high sheen surface, so it acts as a good counterweight to the light screen, meaning it won't tip over - however, you have to screw the base to the pedestal, and the screws are cheap and easy to strip. Lots of swearing involved doing that. The unexpected optical in was a nice bonus, as was the three HDMI ports.

Thats it for the pro's. On with the cons.

Firstly my setup, which you need to know to understand some of the cons - I had an external Sony sound bar (treated myself on Black Friday to this as well, so an unrelated purchase), an Xbox One, and a Sky+ HD box.

The audio is tinny, so for good quality sound you really need an external sound system - however, this brings its own set of issues. Firstly, there is no way to select "external audio output", so the internal speakers are always on - you need to reduce the TV volume to 0 to not get an echo effect, but even then the speakers still have a whisper to them.

Good picture quality (best when turning sharpness all the way down), but lag when gaming or using as a monitor. As such, this TV had to be returned.

(edited: downgraded to 2 star after more extensive tests, fixed typos, note how to disable overscan)
I bought this tv to use as a 4k monitor but am going to return it because it is unsuitable for that use.

I have also used the US model SE39UY04 which i thought it was the same as the SE39UY01UK, but is not.
My review for the US model is at http://www.amazon.com/review/R29YNK73X7I4LW/ , and i used the same
two laptops to test both tv sets.

The UK model differs from the US model for the layout of the inputs, and also the presence of a SCART connector.
Firmware on the two is totally different, and as you can read below, very problematic on the UK model.

Used as a TV, the video interpolation is poor; 576i channels look like a VHS tape (side to side with an LG tv showing the same stream, the difference is huge).
1080i is marginally better but still pretty bad on the eye.

Used as a monitor, there are also significant differences with the US model.
When driven at 3840x2160@30Hz, there is evident smoothing even when the "Sharpness" control is set to 0 (in the US model, changing Sharpness from 1 to 0 has a very evident effect; not so in the UK model). As a result, the video is a bit blurry (visible with text fonts, e.g. in terminals). Also, this seems to give much higher latency in the display. Mirroring the MacBook screen to the SE39UY01UK gives a latency of about 340-380ms (measured running a clock on screen and taking a snapshot with an external camera). Mirroring from a Chromebook at 1024x768 reduces the latency to about 240ms, which is still quite high. The US model feels slightly faster though I do not have precise measurements.

As a TV this is NOT a built-in HD 1080p machine.

Used as a TV, the video interpolation is poor; 576i channels look like an old VHS tape.
1080i via an HD input is marginally better but still pretty poor on the eye.

So..why 5 stars?

Using a Google Chromecast (YouTube, Netflix, 4OD, etc.) at 1080p with no adverts is very nice.

However, Blue-rays, with the up-scaling HDMI USB lead, makes the TV into cinema quality experience, and worth the 5 stars :-)

I had to accept that cheap never means good, but my experience with the uk version of the Seiki 4k 39 ended up a difficult love/hate one but certainly made me rethink about cheap tech. I just wanted a cheap 4k monitor and i know 30hz would be a pain. I plugged it to an alienware m14x r1 (paid 1500 and now discovered how old it has become) which fortunately has a dp port (if you do not have hdmi2.0, then forget about having 4k at 60hz), as i soon discovered that on hdmi it only showed up to 1080p 60hz (it does it up to 120hz but only 1080p). I just needed an active dp to hdmi (got the plugable one) and voila' it was recognised at 4k on my gt555m. the nvidia control panel gave multiple resolutions ranging from 720 to 2k to 4k.. The fact that its 30hz means that a mouse lag is there (just change the mouse pointer speed and you will be ok), it takes time to get used but its not too bad. You just have to understand that things are much smaller and the desktop area is 4 times larger. I played with all the gpu settings to make sure the gpu would be in performance mode.

4k computing requires a bit more resources and a good cpu/gpu. What made me keep the tv is the quality of 4k material it plays, i managed to get lg demo videos (they are city videos, eg the 'europe' one is outrageous, the quality is unbelievable) and they look sooo sharp, amazing, makes 1080p obsolete really. Even 4k on youtube is very good but it takes too much cpu, I use 4k downloader and mpc player which plays 4k beautifully.

I tried games in 4k and its good as well but my gpu cant handle the latest games in 4k (eg alien isolation). 30hz gaming was good indeed but obviously 60hz is better but I could not see any lag (now thinking to buy a msi ge62 with gtx970).
