Nice low price for one of these. But consumers should know that at this time there are no media formats being sold that take advantage of this resolution and the resolution is so high, cable and satellite providers aren't going to be pumping ultraHD content into our homes without significant infrastructure upgrades.

what about the "retina" display (aka WQXGA)
as much as i hate apple the high resolution makes the overall picture much sharper and clearer.

when im 2 feet away from my 55" i can see the pixelation but it becomes non-existent after 5-6 ft where i sit.

I see a few flaws in CNET's little test, like choosing two completely different technologies and testing them both in the kind of room that plays best for the cheaper set, but the bottom line for me is that if nobody ever "wastes" their money on bleeding-edge technology, nobody will bother producing any more bleeding-edge technology.

Thumbs up if only for Seiki having the cajones to disrupt the market like this. You may call the set garbage, but Seiki is doing us all a favor by releasing these things.

I wish they had just put a DisplayPort connector on these, then you'd be able to do 4K at 60Hz with a PC.

Why would you take something like that seriously, they compare the image quality of a 1280x720p screen to a 3840x2160 watching a 1080i video. Of course the 720p screen will look better, it has to SHRINK THE IMAGE, while the 4K TV has to QUADRUPLE THE SIZE.

Why not talk about using it as a coding or work based monitor, with 4X the screen real-estate as 1080p [anandtech.com] for example. That's where this actually has an advantage. Sure you won't be able to get 60Hz, but come on, a 4K monitor for $640? Try to find something else with that resolution at that price range.

This is a terrible review. Show some 4K content on the 4K panel and downscale it for the 1080p panel and re-compare.

There isn't really much 4K content available yet but I don't see why they're comparing a low-end 4K panel to a lower-end 720p panel. A $500 720p panel better good specs other than resolution to make up for it being just 720p.

It can however do 120hz at 1080p. Or is it called 2k now? Stupid naming conventions that marketers push.

Anyways, since it is exactly half the res, you shouldn't see much scaling issues I'd hope.

It is 50" for ~$900. And it is a 4K set.

Either way, I'm not touching them till they get their refresh up to 60 or preferably 120hz.

Also, I love their comparison pics. "We want you to compare 3840x2160 to 1280x720... so here is a picture of both of them at the super high resolution of...610x201??
