Introduction & A Closer Look

Seiki Digital came out of nowhere with incredibly priced 4K (or Ultra HD) TVs. We have the 39-inch model, which retails for under $700; this is just, hands down, game changing.

Sony, Samsung, and the rest of the usual suspects charge thousands more for similar offerings, but are their panels really worth that much more money? This is a question I can't truly answer without Samsung or Sony sending me a 4K TV to test; however, from what I've tested here in my labs, the answer is a resounding yes, for more than one reason. We'll get into that later in the review; for now, we'll take a look around the Seiki Digital monitor to see what we're working with.

We have the box, which is quite thin. This is something we looked at in our unboxing video, which is available below.

Next, we have the stand that the TV gets screwed onto. This makes it very, very stable.

Speaking of the stand, we have the screws, and obviously the requirement of a screwdriver. This step takes just a few minutes.

This is what the Seiki Digital SE39UY04 looks like when it's all set up; it's quite a good looking TV.

The stand itself is sturdy when it's set up.

HDMI is where the magic happens, but it's also where the limitation of the TV is. We should see a new model from Seiki Digital early next year; the new model will feature HDMI 2.0, which is capable of driving 4K @ 60Hz.

On the left side of the TV, we have the usual inputs. From left to right: We have audio in (R and L channels), Component In, a headphone jack, HDMI (1 of 3 ports), and a USB 2.0 port.

On the back of the SE39UY04, we have two more HDMI ports, a USB port, VGA port, PC audio port, an antenna port, the coaxial port, and a couple of audio out jacks.

Keeping to the back of the TV, we have some details on what type of power it requires. It uses AC 100-240V, ~50/60Hz, and 95W of power.
