    I feel bad about what'll happen to this thread next year, when VR starts to take off.

    Seiki 39" 4K resolution HDTV $299 Free Shipping

    As someone who's been following the price of this TV on Amazon for a while, I can say this isn't a very rare or special price. It's been at $300 mark at least several times over the course of the year. There's a large thread about it here: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1756171

    Am I the only one that misses spare batteries?

    I've been using an iPad mini every day for almost 2 years, but you know more about "real life" usage than me. :rolleyes:

    Am I the only one that misses spare batteries?

    From http://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/tablet-battery-life.jpg, it shows 614 minutes of wifi browsing and 604 minutes of video. That's 10+ hours. Very intensive games will probably be between 7-10 hours, but that's still long enough to consider "infinite" by my standards. In other...

    Am I the only one that misses spare batteries?

    It's a Retina mini, so 2048x1536. That's 10+ hours of non stop heavy use, like watching a video over wifi or playing 3D games. On a typical day I don't spend 10 hours on it, so it lasts a lot longer. For example, it's 1:28 AM and I haven't charged it since last morning, and it's at 77%...

    34" 21:9 UltraWide Displays (3440x1440) - LG UM95/UM65 & Dell U3415W

    Can you confirm it's at 60 Hz and not 50 or less? 3440x1440@60. Thanks.

    Am I the only one that misses spare batteries?

    Nope, I'm very happy with the 10+ hour battery life on my iPad mini with Cellular.

    This article on 4k, HDMI, and Deep Color is very interesting and relevant. http://www.toonormal.com/2014/01/10/4k-hdmi-and-deep-color/

    Tried updating Nvidia drivers to the latest, and tried your inf. Still no luck with proper colors at 4k (this is with 39 firmware; I haven't tried the others today). >_< Lower resolutions are working.

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Ok, you're definitely onto something with that. I was able to get it to display the colors absolutely smoothly when I tried with resolutions of 1440x900 or lower in Windows. However, I still can't get it to work properly at 3840x2160 at all. I've tried the Accell active mDP->HDMI adapter, but...

    thomaslfessler, that's a very interesting finding, thanks! I'll have to try it. Where in Windows can you control whether it's RGB or YUV?

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Ok, I've gotten to the bottom of the issue. The TL;DR: I'm very inclined to believe I have a faulty unit. Here is a very standard HSL pattern image with smooth, uniform color transitions: http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/5143/1vs6.png And here's how it looks on this SE39UY04: I have...

    Yeah, it's the same problem as alamone described. Here's a .png: Here's how it looks on my Seiki 39" with Sharpness 0, Noise Reduction "Off": (Closer view) Here's that same .png on a normal 1080p monitor, for comparison... --- I've tried both the latest firmware for 39" and 50", no...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Yep, that's me. :) Thanks, I just found out how to access the service menu (MENU, 0, 0, 0, 0), and the version info is there. Next up I lowered the backlight brightness, so it's much easier to look from up close now. I've already set sharpness to 0 (made a big improvement), and turned noise...

    I just got this monitor at work. How do I find out the current version of firmware it has?
