Now $279.99, but that's still lower than the previous lowest price ever of $289.99 (w/o rebate) from about a year ago.

25 off 200 Amex promo apply? Makes the deal sweeter, but that 30Hz at 4K is a deal breaker.

Yeah it has a decent picture but it is weak on features and hates to save calibration data which is something two of my Seiki 4K TVs have had issues with. I Returned on for an exchange and it had the same issue and then bought the 39" and that one had the same issue.

Also, they crank the back light to 100% from the factory and it shortens the Televisions life.

Volume was also crazy ass loud and since the settings for calibration wouldn't survive the tv being off for more than 15 minutes it had to be adjusted every time.

Oh and one last thing, there's no upconverter built into the TV.

Other than that, 4K for the money is hard to beat.

Worth about 30 cents, if you need something to cover a spot on the wall, or lay down and prop up a chair or table

A few faults was listed. With that said its 4k is breathtakingly beautiful especially at this price. I bought it last year for $269AR and its still working with my son game on it daily but not for others with 1 star review on Newegg. For Photoshop/picture frame it worth every penny but you'll always be using that to justify the mouse slow/lag in 4K. Videos in 4k is to die for but there isn't that many around. 1080p is very fast at 120hz but upscaling is bad for pictures (text is decent) and I can't tell the different between 60 and 120hz anyway (my son does)

So you see there's a BUT for every great feature. That is the deal, if you can live with those buts then it an exceptional value.

I think after you save it the settings become your "user" setting so you have to switch to "user" to see those setting. Another word can't change any manufacturer setting but if you save it, it'll save to "user" setting and you can only have one.

Thanks to how freakin' stagnant the 4K monitor market has been, this monitor is STILL is viable temporary option.

Typing from mine now.

I have been using this as a monitor for the past 4-5 months. I've got it hooked up with a USB3.0 to HDMI converter which is limited to 30hz but it's ok because the TV is too.

Out of the box the mouse lag makes this set nearly unusable. I almost immediately flashed the 50" firmware and it helps greatly but doesn't completely alleviate the issue. I have to get used to it for the first hour or so every day. If i need to do anything requiring a lot of precision mouse movements I do it on one of my other monitors; with this one I'm constantly over/under shooting.

It is a very bright set. I believe I have the brightness set at 25 and I'd prefer to go lower but the contrast is terrible. Not a big deal as a TV but as a monitor it may cause eye strain.

The colors are bright and vibrant but not accurate. It is fine for office type applications and even gaming (at 1440p it looks great) but if I need to judge colors I'll drag it over to another monitor.

4k video looks awesome but stutters constantly. I thought it was due to my USB adapter however I tried it with my new GTX 960 (which supports 4k/HDMI 2.0 natively) yesterday and it is still choppy. You could blame it on the 30hz refresh rate but it seemed a little more severe than that to me.

Overall the extra screen real estate trumps all of the downsides. I would have a hard time working without this now and at this price point (I paid $330) I think it is absolutely worth buying as a stopgap while "good" 4k TVs in this size continue to drop in price.

I will just add that the text on the monitor is a little small. I believe the sweet spot for a 4k monitor is probably 42".
