Its nice to hear that you like the 55" Seiki. How about black levels? People always want to know about black levels, viewing angles, and screen uniformity. How is it in that regard?
Have you looked here?

I was thinking about the 55" model and if it performs any differently compared to the 50". I see that in the other thread, the OP of this thread rated the 50" blacks an 8 out of 10.
And... I'm not aware of any TV that has a good viewing angle at 180 degrees.
Black Levels are good due to the glossy screen. The viewing angles arnt the best at 180 degrees but its not a deal killer. This Tv shines with PS4 or Ps3 with 4k remastered blu ray disks like Total Recall (The Movie not so good) You guys need to review this TV! Hell if you cant get one review both of mine:)
It doesn't have to be a formal review. You could write something "Amazon style," just a couple of paragraphs about how you use it.
When it comes to the Seiki, I do think a lot of potential buyers want to know how well it works when used as a computer monitor. Other topics could include your impressions of color accuracy, black levels, motion resolution, and frame interpolation.
I downloaded some 4K video clips from YouTube and they looked fantastic.
I really do not think this has the capability of a firmware upgrade. However, for a general TV this works well if paired with a good upscaling Blu-Ray player or current console such as the PS4 or XBOX1. For anyone that wants an entry level 4K this is a VERY good deal. As a computer monitor it will work well with out the hassle of multiple computer to monitors connections for a surround setup. This TV is for family viewing so HDMI 2.0 is really not that important.
For someone that is codeing or in the financial industry WOW!!! I am a trader and I went from 6 MVA monitors@ 1920*1200 to 3 IPS monitors @ 2560*1440. Since CES 2014 there will be a bunch of 4K monitors at every size from 27" and up available soon. The pixel density of these smaller monitors should make for a beautiful picture. When the dust settles a bit I will make a choice of what new 4K with DisplayPort and HDMI2.0 to get for myself.
Currently these are $799 at Sears, Amazon has the 50" for $999. If you know how and what you are going to use it for they are a VERY GOOD DEAL. For PC gamers, at this point, I would wait for the new models to become available. I think that 60FPS on a large(50"-55") 4K is the same as 120FPS say on a (24"-27") 2560*1440 because your target size is larger and crisper on the 4K .
I saw a blurb on that during CES and wondered if it would actually work. What you found inspired me to find this;
The Seiki U-VISION HDMI accessories are designed to work with 4K Ultra HD TVs to enhance picture quality of HD video content, and perform real-time detail enhancement, edge restoration and noise reduction. Both products support 1080p up-conversion to 4K video signals up to 30Hz. U-VISION 4K video processing key features include:
Up-conversion of 1080p content up to 4K
Up-conversion of 720p content up to 1080p
Adaptive edge enhancement of lines and curves for improved video and user interfaces
Adaptive sharpening and noise reduction to refine video content
Low-latency processing for HD video gaming
Brightness, contrast, saturation improvement
BTW MFS6278, have you checked to see if you can get 120HZ/fps @ 1080P on your 55" Seiki?

Seiki 4K Upscaling Cable Review http://wp.me/p2Pga3-kw
An HDLM cable upscaling content? Seems like a crock.
The cheapest video upscaler boxes you can find range from $500 to $800 on the low end.
1. Cable/Satellite content native vs U-Vision
2. Streamed Content (AppleTV/Roku/Amazon ect) native vs U-Vision
3. DVD native vs U-Vision
4. BluRay native vs U-Vision
I guess I see your point. There's a comma missing in the title. Kind of like " let's eat grandma" and " let's eat, grandma".
Just to be clear, it is a 120hz set,just not at 4k. I'm not sure there is a standard to deliver 4K at 60hz until HDMI 2.0 is finalized. Nonetheless only the Seiki Pro series looks like it will support future upgradability to 60hz at 4k.
I wanted to check and see if anyone else has noticed this as I haven't seen anyone else mention this. I've attached an image but it doesn't show it that well but you can kind of see it. In the image they kind of have a blue tint to them.
The sales person did not tell you that. I bet. He wanted his little commission from that extra $100 sale. But if you are happy with it and the price you paid that is ALL that really matters.
