Seiki may not be in the league of some of the big players within the consumer electronics industry, but they still have the same philosophy, and that is to deliver a good quality TV at a fair price, and this is just what they have done with the Seiki SE39UY04 model. Its specs and features really do punch above their weight when you look at the price tag, as in most places you will only pay $500, although we have heard whispers this could be rescued to $300, surely his cannot be true?
This Seiki 39-inch 4K Ultra HD LED TV is well made and comes with a premium design, and its 39-inch panel delivers clarity that you usually get on TVs in a higher price brand. Upon further thought, should we really be too surprised at this, especially as Seiki is said to be one of the largest TV manufactures in the world, although they are not as mainstream and so we can only assume they appeal to a different market in other countries.
With this model you get certain specs and features that are usually out of reach if you have a set budget, with 4K Ultra HDTV being a fine example. I cannot remember the last time I saw a TV so cheap boasting this technology, and so we really should start to take this brand seriously.
If you thought Full HD 1080p was good at the time of its release, then 4K really will blow your mind because you get a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 with the SE39UY04, which is 8 million individual pixels compared to 2 million for normal HD TVs. This means you can start to enjoy movies far better than ever, and if you ever manage to view a 4K TV program broadcast, then your mind or rather your eyes will be blown away.
Other notable features are the 1.07 Billion maximum color, 120Hz refresh rate for a fast response time, and a 5000:1 to contrast ratio, which to us seems pretty low. Another shock is the lack of Smart TV features, although something has to give considering the price.
Remember that you get what you pay for, as this is evident in some of the reviews we have seen on Amazon, and so you should read over some of them before you commit to a purchase.
