4K Standard future proof TV

Seiki offers smart, savvy TV buyers the ultimate digital entertainment experience with its 50-inch 4K Ultra HDTV sold exclusively at Sears. Featuring a slim design LED panel capable of 3840 x 2160 resolution, the Seiki 50-inch 4K Ultra HDTV displays every detail with greater clarity than current HD 1080p displays. Every video plays smoothly with minimal pixilation and blurs, thanks to its 120Hz refresh rate and 6.5ms response time.

The Seiki 50-inch 4K Ultra HDTV model features built-in digital and analog channel tuning, USB media port for displaying images up to 4K and playing MP3, and multiple video and audio connections to support current HD video content. This model is includes a HDMI 1.4 standard cable to enable video resolutions beyond 1080p right out of the box.

For all its Ultra HD models, Seiki offers the industry’s first one-year, no-nonsense, replacement warranty through its U.S.-based customer support.
Hi-Def Time Four
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 (3840 x 2160) compared to about 2 million (1920 x 1080) on your current HDTV, the picture provides stunning clarity and colors that far surpass anything you’ve seen before. Picture is so smooth, even close up, that every seat in the house is the best one! Put simply, you have to see it to believe it.

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.

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’s 4K brings to your favorite shows, movies, and sports will also be delivered to your workstation, and your online and gaming experience.

anyone know if any video card with hdmi out will drive this monitor to display 4k resolution?

Is this tv any good?

rated:
I'm not sure why anyone would buy this tv. Presumably the buyer would want the better picture that a 4K tv can offer (even though there is little to no 4K content yet and at 50 inches very little noticeable difference between 4K and 1080p anyway), but then the buyer would not have to care that a Seiko tv has a much poorer picture overall (in everyday use at 1080p and below resolution levels that almost all tv watching will be done at) than a class-leading tv such as those from Panasonic, Samsung, etc. Seems like a strange decision to want the newest 4K technology that has little real world value as compared to great 1080p technology that you can see is better than the Seiko every day.

Most video cards with HDMI 1.4 will be able to drive it.
Remember though, it will be limited to 30Hz refresh (this is a spec limitation. HDMI 1.4 cannot pass more data. You need either DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0 for 4k at 60Hz+).

Not exactly true...Even if your video card supports HDMI 1.4. and 2.0 right now the refresh limitation in these sub $100 4K panels is in the panels themselves. Plus in order to use 4K @30hz on these Seiki 4Ks your video card hardware AND video card driver also has to support at a 4K native resolution of 3840 x 2160 regardless of you video card having support for the HDMI 1.4 or HDMI 2.0 standard. Right now other than a few high end gaming video cards and Intel GMA 4400 or newer integrated chipsets there are no video cards that will drive this TV at the native 4K pseuo-standard it requires. Unlike higher end 4K TVs there is NO scaling adjustment for near 4K resolutions in these POS Seikis which is one of the reason they can build them so cheap.  Lack of video hardware and drivers that can support native 3840 x 2160 4K is one of the main reasons these Seiki TVs are so frequently returned. To complicate the 4K standard even more, manufacturers at CES last month the introduced 3 new native standards for 4K lineup: They are 5120 x 3200 , 3120 x 2160 and 4096 x 2160 for legacy pre-2012 CAD hardware applications. Even Dell's new $800 P2815Q 4K LED monitor introduced at CES last month  only run 4K @ 30hz because that isa limitation of the current panel design. Bottom line these sub $1000 4K monitors are WAY to immature at this point to consider using for any 4K work.

  30hz is fine for desktop use and even TV/video use as almost no video is > 30 FPS. With a computer doing up-converting to 4k to play media it works pretty good also seiki is going to send its customers a HDMI cable that does technicolor upscaling which rumors say does a really good job as they partnered with technicolor to do it.

This TV is great for gaming on a computer, it will natively do 120Hz @ 1080p and is only 1 frame of input lag so around 9ms at 1080p@120hz. Its almost worth it just for that reason even if you don't need 4k. Also it will be far superior to 1080p once the 4k content starts coming out.

Also FYI this video card will run the display fine (although would suck for any gaming):

You don't need a high powered video card. Any ATI/nvidia card with DP can run it with the $30 accel active DP 1.1 -> HDMI 1.4 adapter as well (even older hd 5800 series cards). Any kepler-based nvidia card is actually spec'd for 4k over HDMI. A lot of even older fermi cards can as well with custom modelines and stuff.

good tv.
I got one from Amazon few weeks ago.
Picture quality is very good, far better than any 1080P.
Honestly, the picture quality not better than Sony or Samsung or LG 4K TV, which priced $3000+.

I also used it as a 4K display for my Macbook pro retina late 2013 ( ONLY late 2013 model Macbook pro retina or Macbook Pro support 4K).
UHD 4K HDMI cable already included in the package.

I highly recommend this. 4K and 1080P are totally different. 4K is super clear.

And for $600, it's a steal.

Just double checked it and it is showing $599.88 for me.

good price, maybe they are dumping these after the superbowl sales. Looks like the 120Hz is 899 on Amazon, 4 stars can't be all bad. http://www.amazon.com/Seiki-Digital-SE50UY04-50-Inch-120Hz/dp/B0... 
Fortunately I invested in the best 2D TruLED TV in 2012 to hold me over until the 3D fad passes and can wait for the next big thing.
