It came out last year. Original thread.

Quite a few negative experiences in that thread, thanks.

Well none were that as I don't think anybody in the thread that bought one!

It's £200. Worst case is it ends up as a console display.

I don't think there are any experiences in that thread, given it was a pre-order at the time.

Anyway, a few reviews from people that seem to have actually used it.
It blows my mind to when I think back to the time when my parents paid £130 for a second hand Amstrad 14" colour portable TV (1986 I think) so I could play my speccy in all it's colour clash glory, it was awsome

Anyway back to the post is it a deal, of course it is, there maybe cheaper non 4k TV's out there and to some this may not have the right badge and I am sure the blacks won't be black enough for others but FFS it's a 42" Ultra Hd 4k for less than £200 that is only £70 more than my parents paid for a second hand piece of crap (see above) back in the day.

MM

Just punched £130 into the inflation calculator and depending on which one you use £130 back in 86 is worth anything between £260 and £300 in today's money!

I originally saw:

"I had the original seiki 4k that was £199-£209. Returned after 1 week because it was beyond bad."

Second time, realized it was a diff model.

Also saw this:

It has a 4k panel. It must support 4:4:4 chroma subsampling though for it to be a good PC monitor. If the input lag is as bad as people say it is, I wouldn't use it as a monitor.

Wow, great price.
Wife will kill me if I buy this as a monitor.
Note that it has a HDMI 2.0 port
Soooo tempted by this. Was gonna get the LG from AO.com for £180 but was put off by the one HDMI and lack of audio output....This has both!!!!

One thing that is a match winner is.....Can you use your sky remote with this? and if so what is the code?
Just seen this review:

"Get what you pay for its not flashy but does the job. Sky remote wont work for volume like on most other tv's and the actual tv remote has to be pointed right at the sensor to work not just in the gereral direction"

I'd take a punt on this at this price. Delighted with the 43" full HD version.

Heat!



Thanks for making that chart.....

Oh wait you didn't. You just stole it and added the hotukdeals.com at the bottom!
It things like this is why people have to watermark their images.

Erh.. ?

It's on there as that is where it is.. so when it gets whipped by all the other
automated sites that do not bother like hukd's does.. wayne at seiki can
see us all helping get the spec across!

Personally I don't care, but over the months it stops so many hukd deals
appearing elsewhere as the rippers do not like adverting other deal
sites!!! oO

Yes, but does it have full chroma? I doubt it.

So you are justifying it to stop others stealing it!? How ironic!!!X)

So HUKD are advocating this is an OK practice? So they will have no issues me using their images and adding my own branding?
PS No need to reply to this as I know the answer!
Hmmm possibly worth a punt at £199. With these Generic Chinese 4K TV's they almost always use the same main board with a rather extensive service menu - do some forum digging and you'll find threads on how to get better results if using one as a monitor (I'm not going to link & it's at your own risk)

Another cheap option would be the 43" Digihome (Vestel) 4K from Tesco at £279. From previous threads on here it seems it doesn't (well the 40" version) do full Chroma but people have been using them as monitors with positive results.
Any thoughts what's its dynamic resolution ? Looking at this price I presume it's below 1000 lines (FullHD resolution !), but it's only my guess. Price is tempting, but for watching static pictures in 4K 200 pounds is a bit too much ;-)

It's a spec sheet not the Mona Lisa. Who cares.

​We had a very bad experience with the £189 43" Digihome from Tesco as a monitor.

Went back next day.

How close were you to the screen? FHD on 43-inch at 40cm would be horrendous me think. 4K would be reasonable.

in the 50's my dad said to my mum, shall we buy a house or a tv?? they went for the tv and I can assure you that the price of a decent property was not any different at the time

Is there a catch on buying this tv cus £200 for 43" 4k sounds too cheap
Is this tv good quality or pior as the price seems unreal?
wonder what this is like for gaming couldn't find any reviews regarding input lag

The reviews seem decent, think the catch is just the brand which doesn't bother me.

Also the sound doesnt score well, but just use a soundbar!!

​4k is definitely better than 1080p and 720p. Also there is hdmi 2.0 and hevc 2.0 on one hdmi input in this TV. I see a lot of deals on this website where people are buying and praising very old models(probably retailer trying to get rid of old stock) with low resolution thinking it is a bargain at this price when it's just obsolete junk.
just bought one, tried to put this up but was beatin, was about to buy the 39inch when this appeared in my mailbox today
tempted
I was looking at the HiSense M3000 43" Smart UHD in Argos for £299 - apart from the smart features (which I wouldn't use much as have a Fire TV stick) is the Hisense £100 better than this Seiki? Main use is Sky HD viewing / SD other programs and a few HD videos, but I want a UHD panel so it's not out of date in a few years.

Cheers
what sort of motherboard could you get to use with this, if it needs hdmi 2.0? Could it be used with a mini-ITX?
