Amazon has price matched Walmart for this TV. However it should be noted that Walmart allows 90 day returns on TV's and most places have a Walmart making it much easier and free to return. Also for those who worry about Seiki's unknown quality for this newer model Walmart offers relatively inexpensive extended warranties ($44 3yr. and $55 4yr.). 

The next best price from a rated merchant on Google Shopping is $499.99 from Newegg.

For those following the recently popular Seiki 39" ($299) & 65" ($999) 4K threads, WalMart is now offering the 50" version for an unbelievable $449. The 4K portion of the set doesn't offer much visible improvement over 1080p versions with today's available source material but for those using it as a computer monitor, this is where it shines. If your video card or integrated graphics is capable of driving the 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD resolution, you can have the best of both worlds (at least until the 60Hz / display port barrier is broken). There is some great advice on setting up a 4K TV for monitor use in this thread: http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1368219/ 

There has been some concern over the warranty and reliability of the Seiki brand. I surely couldn't see spending $100-200 to ship a defective unit back for warranty repair. You might want to consider an extended warranty from either WalMart or SquareTrade.

3 yr $44
4 yr $55

Shop at home dot com is now offering a 4% rebate (expires 7/7) on WalMart dot com purchases made through their website. (open account with Shop at Home first). That's an additional $17.16 savings on this 50" Seiki. Terms do not exclude TV's. YMMV

Note: Price has increased $20 to $449 around July 15th. Also, I found out Seiki has introduced a new line of 4K TV's called Seiki Pro (hdmi 2.0 / 60hz) but they won't be available here in the US until next year. Here are some links for more info on Seiki's 4K plans:

New Seiki monitors to include hdmi 2.0 and display port 1.3

This could be the reason for dumping their current 4K UHD TV's which are crippled @ 30hz refresh rate

Note: Their 55" 4K UHD has also dropped in price to $579

Good to know. I was curious if they were ever going to give an update on the future of these TV's. For awhile there was a lot of talk that a firmware update would possibly be able to make HDMI 1.4--> 2.0. Looks like I will just turn my seiki 4k 40" monitor(TV) into my TV in a year or two and then pick one of these up to replace my monitor. Love the 40" 4k TV as a monitor by them though. Great buy for the price and functionality.

I just had a open box 50" shipped from Newegg (499). I'm glad it arrived damaged and I was able to get an RMA. I bought a display port to HDMI adapter. Now do I wait or the new TVs or get a better deal?

My local HHgreg is going out of business, 359.99 is the price for the floor model. It was just opened and never hooked up. WOW these are cheap.

Is motion blur an issue.
LCD were 60hz and got a lot of complaints so they started making them @ 120hz,then 240?hz and added special circuitry to try to handle motion problems that showed up in sports and other times when the screen changed rapidly.
I have not seen one of these 4k monitors but I have to wonder with their slower refresh rates how they deal with this issue.
Any first hand experience would be appreciated.

  Search for threads on UHD (4K) TV's and read through them. Some people there share their experiences with them in detail. There are plenty of threads on FW & SD. I went to my local Wal-Mart and they don't sell the Seiki brand in-store at all.

This can be returned for free within 90 days? Worth trying it out?
