panel type is what makes them so expensive, not refresh rate

The panels are indeed what cost the most but the R&D for V-by-one has been pretty massive which can easily go up to 300 dollar a board for large companies like LG. (production costs are only like 50 dollars a board)

Never paid attention to TV brands, but is Seiki a good TV brand? Cause $700 for a 39 inch 4k res TV is quite cheap and might buy one as a personal TV for a HTPC

I would like to see you push 4K UHD 60Hz over HDMi 1.4 xD (not with half refreshes interpolation isn't what I'm talking about)

Even the Seiki with its stock transceiver board doesn't drop the frames but it definity has issues. (a amount of blur that makes it look like you upsampeld 800x600 to 1920x1080 then downsampled to 1280x768.)

What do you expect they are the cheapest so no the support won't be good but you'll get very good price/perf

Maybe my math is off, but when I take a $700 tv and add a $300 board to it to enable higher refresh rate, I don't get anything close to a $2000 price tag

They'll add useless crap a better shell and foot the markup the price for brand and service (I can't really advise buying such expensive screens to anyone)
It isn't that much different from the 1440p screens being overpriced by brands (slightly better caps and a different shell doesn't justify the price)
