Seiki SE42UGT Streaming

post #1 of 319
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,


Has anyone tested the SE42UGT model yet. It already has a PC Mode and all. I've played around with the steaming software which is not to bad. YouTube plays in 4K and some of the Netflix material does too. Haven't had a chance to hook this up to my PC. Getting the new processor Wednesday from Newegg to complete my build.

I'll let you know how it is tomorrow. I pick mine up in the a.m.

I'm not using it specifically to game, I do video editing and shoot in 4k, needed a less expensive large 4k screen.

I'm really not sure. The specs are pretty vague. I won't be home till Friday then I'll do some more testing. I can't find anything on the internet about this tv except where to buy one.

Well I just bought one since I was on a Acer 1080p IPS 21 inch and decided I needed some more real estate lol.

For 300 bucks its not a big deal to me if it quits in a year even though I have bought Seiki TV's since 2013 and they never have given me any issues.

All three HDMI ports support HDMI 2.0 and you have an option to change it back to HDMI 1.4a

It supports 1080p at 60HZ in the Desktop but by default the higher modes such as 3k or 4k are at 30 hrz.

Also has a PC Mode under Picture Mode.

I am on a Radeon APU right now and using a 1440p HDMI cable

How is the lag with the mouse using 3k or 4K at 30hrz? I don't plan on gaming on it just using it for more room for the desktop.

I didn't notice any input lag in desktop in 1080/3k/4k

As mentioned above it does have hdmi 2.0, it will support 4k at 60hz but only at hdmi 2, which my gtx770 doesn't support. The clarity of screen is great with 4k content. The menus are easy to use and also has wifi and ether net conectivity.

The Bad;
WiFi antenna is weak so I'd use wired if possible
I tested it with a few games, didn't really get any ghosting issues but the mouse movements feel "muddy". I wouldn't call it lag though. My other screen is running at 144hz so I think it's just my perception is skewed a bit. (Again it's going at 30hz, which I haven't used in years)

Overall I'm happy with the purchase. I like the extra space it gives me for editing and other producton work. At the price of under 300, I recommend it, much more and I'd probably pass.

Yeah I think for 300 its a great price. I wish they would have included a display port instead of the streaming functions but I am pretty sure this TV is marketed towards the general masses so you can't complain really unless you are spending 600 or more. I had a 21 inch IPS low lag and I was severely disappointed with after using a 32inch Seiki 720p. IPS doesn't matter if the real estate aint there, bottom line.

I am one of those people who is happy even at 900p gaming as long as the game is good. Fallout 4 at 900p vs Metro Last Light at 4K, yeah I'd rather play the former.

Also I am pretty sure this TV will be able to push 1440p@120 once it becomes more popular like the 2013 model 39 Seiki 4K via firmware upgrade.
