and it is no good as a PC monitor the 30HZ is unbearable.
Depends on the individual and how you intend to use it.

For people who do serious computer work that involves a lot of text (coding, spreadsheets, etc), 4K can be fantastic and you're not typically moving things around at a rate where that limitation matters.

If you want to do some of that work and then switch to gaming, you can just do your gaming at a resolution below 4K and your refresh rate is more than fine. Moderately-recent graphics cards can do 4K, but the market of people who have the computer hardware to game at 4K with decent framerates is very small. There are way more people out there who are writing, programming, doing CAD work, dealing with databases, opening 50 console windows to monitor various processes, etc.

Of course, there ARE people out there already routinely gaming at framerates around and below 30. People vary substantially in what they're comfortable with in this area, and the type of game you're playing has a pretty huge impact as well. (I remember when Civ IV first came out and there was a really bad memory leak in the initial version of the game that would slowly drop my framerate over time. Rapid motion in the game is minimal enough that I would get down around 10 before it was completely intolerable and I had to save and restart the game so that I could start the process over again. I was really really happy when they patched that...)

I have one of these, and it's been great to have. When 4K is needed, I have 4K. When I want 1080p to watch a movie, it's right there. My video game consoles are also hooked up to it, and they do just fine on it. When I want a resolution somewhere between 1080p and 4K for PC gaming, I can absolutely do that.

Having DisplayPort to get better refresh rates at 4K would definitely have been nice, but it's still a very useful item to have for my purposes, and I know there are other people who do a lot of work where a massive amount of screen space can be valuable who are benefiting from it as well.

It seems like there's a segment of gamers that has a serious "Princess and the Pea" complex.

All of the above!

It would be a bad time to buy a 4k tv at the moment due to the lack of 4k content. That being said, the review that cnet posted on this tv is pretty stupid. Playing 720p-1080p content on a 4k tv is like playing 360p content on a 1080p display...you're not going to have a good time.
not agreeing with the review, however scientifically (Me being a scientist) it makes sense to have the correct control in the experiment.

obviously showing 4k content on a 4k panel will look better than a 720p image. but that is an unfair test. a fair test is to display content that bother sets can render. the results do point out that there is more to the image than resolution (specs). contrast ratio also plays a part among other things.

but the whole thing is pretty dumb considering u will have nothing to watch on ur new 4k tv when u buy it.

Those never heard of the brand, like to read CNET reviews. Early adopters or ones in need for 4K cheapie only need to apply here.
No need to do apple orange comparo with eyefiniti, etc. NOT the same. Need faster/better 4K, SPEND more and get a Sony or LG.
Oh wait, different price point... can't do that comparo either.
Seiki 4K is unique at the moment. If you have to compare or try to justify, it's not for you.

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.
While you are correct, remember, a lot of general consumers who has the money to get the latest and greatest want to show off that they have the highest resolution UHDTV. Do they really understand or even care that there's no media for 4K resolution movies? I have seen friends who said come and check out my latest "TV" but they don't even have the movie to show me that can show that the "TV" can do. But they continue to try be impressed with the "TV" they have do in theory. And that is what 4K UHDTV manufacturers try to do.

It's kind of the same as most PS3 and X360 games graphics are made for 720p or lower but as long the "TV" can show "1080p" is enabled, they are happy but complained if the PS3 games can only run at 720p.

As always, perception sells, not fact.

Survey says.... IGNORANT!
You're joking right? 4k is a gimmick on TVs smaller than 55". Unless you're sitting within a few feet you wont tell the difference between that and 1080 and the 30Hz refresh rate is horrible.

Unless you're using this as a monitor there's no reason to get it; and let's face it, there are much better monitors for $700.

How's that for ignorance?

I don't need a monitor at 4k running 30hz. I also don't need 120hz at 1080p.

What I need to know is what resolution can this run at 60hz.

Can it run 1600 at 60hz?

lolol Seiki. WHY would anyone waste money on this crap? Ive seen gray market imitation "Sony" LCDs that look better than their crap. No self respecting B&M store should carry this brand, it belongs at a flea market.

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.
Because there is no 4K content available. There is currently no plan for 4K content to be available for likely another 12-18 months, and even then it will likely have an updated interface and set of specs compared to any current 4K display. The only 4K content actually available right now is upconverted content, which he tests using a Blu-ray player with a 4K scaler.

The point is between two display, with actual, current content that you actually watch, which looks better? If you have to have 4K, you're better off saving that money until there's a 4K standard and buying a higher quality set. If you want a better looking display overall with anything you'll watch today, buy the Samsung, save $700. If you only want the Seiki as a 39" desktop monitor that might be useful, but the 30 Hz might be too much of a drawback.

Sucks that there's nothing in between 1080 and 4k.

Right, because you slap the word 'Sony' on it and suddenly it's an amazing piece of technology.

Quoted for truth.

Quote from tooloud10 View Post :
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.
4K isn't really "bleeding-edge" technology, it's more of a gimmick technology.
