Cheaper on Amazon. I bought it yesterday for $495 and free shipping (not the free prime stuff). Added an extra 4 year warranty on top for about $56. Pretty nice deal for what I wanted thumb.gif

 

Lots of positive reviews at Amazon that agree with you.

I plan on buying it for work. It will make a great monitor to be able to see more lines of code at once smile.gif


I am considering buying the Seiki SE39UY04.
Am wondering how many extra lines of code can you see vs 2560x1440.

Just got the TV in. It's nice, but as a warning for future buyers. The thing is HUGE. I didn't fully realize how huge 39 inches would be. It's going to be somewhat tough to use as just a computer monitor. It will take a lot of adjustment. It is also very bright even with the brightness setting turned all the way down

A 30 inch 1440p screen may be better for you.

I just ordered the 50" and I am very excited.

Time to get rid of my three Dell IPS screens! No more black borders for me ^_^

Also I was told that Seiki will release a firmware update to upgrade HDMI to HDMI 2.0 like Sony and many other manufacturers announced.

Has anybody else heard this?

Im not really sure. I used my monitor from home a couple times for big projects, and it is 2560x1440. I could see a lot, but the amount I can see with 4K is just crazy. I dont deal in the code most people think of, like C++ and all that. My work involves more ladder logic type stuff for servo and stepper drive type machines and robotics. Here is an example of the resolution I used to have, and then the resolution I am now at.


Old res:

New res (the top line of old and new are the same spot, for reference):

Unlike Koogiking, I have gotten used to the monitor size pretty well already. Though my desk is pretty deep so likely my monitor is an extra foot back than his setup, which would make a huge difference.

Ok I have a way to reference how much I can see. Go to the main forum home page on this site. On a 2560x1440 screen I can see from the top all the way down to about the "Overclock.net Folding@Home Team" subforum. On my 4K monitor I can see from the top all the way down to about "AMD Memory (Link)" subforum. So I guess that is something like 30-40% more info in both vertical and horizontal directions?

Thanks a lot. Can you tell me the distance between your eyes and the screen and how difficult is it to read text in the forum?

It is not difficult for me to read text at all, but I did calibrate the screen a bit. Out of the box is pretty sucky. The monitor sits about 3 and a half feet from my eyes at the back of my desk.

Have been using four 1920x1200 monitors with GTX 670 (4 GB) for over a year so obviously I’m interested in viewing lots of info at one time.

 

Seiki SE39UY04 39” currently $480 at Sears and Amazon.

Seiki SE50UY04 50” currently $700 at Sears.
