|narfoner||Wait, so since 24fps was the native frame rate for 1080p films are they still using 24hz for 4k?|

Such a thing would be more useful at my work where I have many windows open and currently run quad monitors of odd sizes and resolutions (17"-20"). A single 50" monitor would certainly tidy up the appearance of my office.

|Messiah62||what is the point of these tv if there is no content available and hdmi 1.4 only supports 30hz at the 4k resolution? Please give me a reason to buy the tv.|

I have no idea if this coveration was still going on, I got to page 5 and gave up, this is my cheat sheet for resolutions based on Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers & the Digital Cinema Initiatives. One thing had change 4K or Quad HD has now become Ultra HD which was something originally closer to 8K. Also 1080p is closer to 2K then 1K just to clarify someone comparing 1080p to 1K. Although it is not labeled that way (i.e. 1080p 720p) resolution is based on the width of the display, not the height.
Maybe some of this has been resolved and I'm really late to the party, but I just thought I'd share my little cheat sheet. At the end of the day,
SMPTE Standards Name Width Height with 16:9 ratio qHD* 960 540 1K 1024 576 HD* 1280 720 Full HD* 1920 1080 2K 2048 1152 2.5K 2560 1440 Quad HD*3840 2160 4K 4096 2304 5K 5120 2880 6K 6144 3456 7K 7168 4032 Ultra HD* 7680 4320 8K 8192 4608 *non-SMPTE standards but commonly used resolutions
So 4K is 4*1024=4096 wide, and lets go crazy with one of those new 21:9 LG displays (that don't come in 4K) which is a 2.33 ratio display(21/9=2.33)
4096/2.33=1755 pixels high. So a SMPTE 4K 21:9 display would be 4096x1755.
Change that around with other tv standards that quarterHD is your starting point and that 4K/QuadHD 21:9 display would be 3840x1646.
The SMPTE standard is nice and easy to understand, I'm not sure why marketing has to change to Quad(obsolete) and Ultra HD. Oh well.

for a moment i tried to use a 1080P 37inch TV as monitor, the pixel density just sucks for coding or reading.
i now uses 2 Dell 27 inch monitor and i would love to put this in the center and put my two monitor vertically.

Not really. He said:
1) "It was by far the best picture I had seen on a TV that close up"
No joke, he was standing like 3 feet away from the tv. Besides, he's just commenting on resolution, not the picture quality of the set compared to other tvs.
2) "They all looked BEAUTIFUL when in a still position but we did notice some flickering on the TV that might be the result of the 120 Hz interpolation and possibly the "dynamic luminance control" feature that SEIKI has."
Unless he can fix it through system settings, that's a deal breaker right there.
The only thing this set is really good for is if you want to sit absurdly close to a screen for PC games. The picture quality isn't going to be competitive with 1080p sets in the price range...and, as has been stated multiple times, you're going to have to sit REALLY close to a 50" screen to notice any benefit of 4K. So, yeah...if you're a PC gamer, it might be something to consider if you have a lot of money to blow and want a massive screen...but even for those purposes, you're going to do a lot better PPI wise getting a smaller monitor if you don't plan on sitting like 4 feet away from a 50' tv.

I'm guessing one GTX 680 or HD 7970 would do 30Hz on a 4K display without too many issues. Either that or a pair of 660s or possibly 7870s.
