Misleading, this is not a 4K 120hz television! This is a 4K 30hz television, 1080p 60hz television (accepts 120hz signal, but drops half the frames check AVforum), or 720p 120hz television.
So at 4K you are getting 30fps (well slightly less in reality) which means ghosting will be extreme for an LCD panel. So to advertise this as a 120hz TV is pretty much a blatant lie for this particular unit.
Also fair warning that this is a very large side-lit, not back-lit, LED TV. While side-lighting (shining LEDs from the edges) works fine on smaller LED TVs, you notice the bleed/clouding issues the more you size the screen up, and 65" is quite large. Bright scenes will look great, but watching Batman Dark Knight will be painful.
There's a market for them, for people who either 1. have really good eyes, or 2 use them as a computer monitor. I'm currently sitting 3ft away from my modest 42in tv. But because I'm sitting close to it, it's effectively the same size as a much, much larger tv that someone else paid 8k for to sit 9 ft away from.
If you want a better, more cinematic effect the easiest thing to do is to move your tv closer to you, or move yourself closer to the tv. And if you are sitting only a few feet away 4k becomes complete awesome. From where I'm currently sitting I can see each pixel on my tv - when I look for them; It'd be amazing for that not to be the case.
CNET is an infomercial website. I wouldn't even post their link on a prestigious site like SD and give them free traffic. Every single review and word on that site seems to be paid for since technically it's full of inaccurate and bias views unlike sites such as Engadget, TheVerge, Life Hacker even SomeCoolTech guy on YouTube, he is more credible.
4K sounded like overkill knowing 1080p already has 2 million pixels. Surprisingly at CES I could spot all 4K screens from tens of feet away. It's awesome. Not sure how the low hz well be visible. Definitely awesome to look at family photos on this.
What's more important is that Seiki is calling Sony out on their outrageous pricing of say $25,000 on 84" 4K just a year ago. Seiki basically is sending a message to Sony, LG and Samsung that 4K is not going to be the new epiphany to make your stock double. 4K is just a small incremental advancement in technology that the Chinese, as usual, have mastered ahead of others.
