I haven't seen this good of a price since a few days after they first debut'd the thing and it was $499 (me and my dad both got one). My dad just ordered a second one to use at home.

At 4k these monitors are only 30hz. I personally feel this is fine for desktop usage and video but it does bug some people for desktop usage.

Panel is S-MVA. Good response time, great viewing angles, good color. Almost as good as IPS but far superior contrast compared to IPS.

These are replacing dated 22 inch 4k monitors from 2003-2006 era for me. The 50 inch can take 120hz 1080p or 240hz 720p input and actually output 120hz which makes it good/great for gaming (1 frame of input lag).

The 39 inch (one linked) unfortunately has a problem where it drops half the frames when given a 1080p@120hz (or drops 75% of the frames @ 720p @ 240hz) even  though it displays output just fine. Seiki have been telling me they are going to fix this for months and it should be a simple firmware fix but until that is done I wouldn't call the 39 inch version great for gaming like the 50 inch one. Seiki may fix this soon which will mean this could make an excellent gaming monitor.

I personally feel these are the best panels I have used for under $1000 by far.

Keep in mind you need a computer with HDMI 1.4 output to drive this. Any computer/OS should be able to drive this if it has thunderbolt/displayport if you use this adapter:


This is the only adapter available that will work properly on everything in cluding Mac OS X.
