    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Im on Nvidia, and to get the games to work at 120hz, I must first set my desktop resolution to 1080p 120hz, then launch the game. If my desktop is set to 4k 30hz, and i launch the game, the game 'defaults' to 1080p60, very odd, but i get by. This monitor is a rose! its beautiful, but it has...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    I have PS3/PS4/2nd PC running via a 3 to 1 HDMI selector box, which then passes via a Live Gamer Portable capture card, then finally to my 39" Seiki HDMI port. So it would be really good if I could have just 1 HDMI input for this. If not, its not the end of the world as Im sure i can get...

    Ahh Geoking, I hadnt thought of that. To use 2 seperate hdmi inputs so TV keeps each colour settings hehe. Although it would be annoying to reach for the remote control each time, it is still somewhat of a solution for now.

    Yeah the 4k30 and 1080p120 modes uses a different foundation of colors or modes. So we got no choice but to calib for one or the other, trying to get the midway seems very difficult.

    It looks like ur getting a scaled image at 1080p, hence the jaggy and aliased look. You need to make sure of the following 2 things: No over scan (both via TV or video drivers), and sharpness set to zero within TV settings. Not sure about the custom res part, i added a 1920x1080 120hz custom...

    I think a $300 kit for a 4k60hz desktop is an excellent idea. I would still be running my games at 120hz 1080p, but now the 4k just became alot more usable than just viewing still photos or browsing static websites. The installing maybe a fun factor for some people, trouble for others, so its a...

    For games, i find that games happily run at 1080p120hz if your desktop is also set to 1080p120hz. Which is weird. Yeah so if your desktop is running 4k30, and your games' config ini is set to 1080p120hz, it can have issues. But switch your desktop to 1080p120, and all the problems suddenly...

    Hey Houko, yeah im also pretty sensitive with the input lag/response. I can clearly see a difference between this and my 120hz samsung S27A950 TN panel. But im happy to accept this over the TN due to size and colors/contrast advantage, its rly no contest hehe. So it will accept 240hz, and will...

    Yeah mine buzzes too, though not on 4k mode...weird (except if u turn backlight to less than 100). But on 1080p120, it buzzes as u said, when its black background etc. And i have a fanless PC so i can really hear it sometimes hehe, but i overlook this cos the monitor is awesome for what i use it...

    Hey Houko, does the 39" handle 240hz at lower rest like 720p?

    Hehe, u know spotting the dead pixels on a 4k is also much harder than spotting the dead pixels on a, say a 24" 1080p panel. They are so tiny (also i sit back a lil too) that they dont bother me as much, i have 2 on mine, in the corners. Anyways I88, u got a bargain for $270 mate ! :) You know...

    Hey houkouonchi, can our 39" seiki run 720p 240hz? Mine defaults to 60hz when i try. Not that id ever use that mode since 1080p120 is perfect for me, but hey. Btw, u can have the 'soap oprah effect' on the PC if u want, just google for SVP. Its basically a filter that is used for MPC to play...

    Yeah houkouonchi, I think this has been my best gaming and allrounder monitor so far. I have had monitors such as Dell 27", Samsung S27A950 (tn 120hz) and LG TV etc etc all in the past, and kept sort of switching between them, cos one was good at something but lacked in other department etc etc...

    SDDrew, unfortunately the 55" version is not very good for PC use. As far as i know, it does not support 120hz input like the 39/50" versions. Also, the motion enhancing feature (frame prediction / interpolation) is only good for videos, not for PC use, as u said, it has alot of input lag. It is...

    Geoking, 4k requirements are very low actually :) 60mpbs is nothing compared to today's flash drives that can do well over 500mpbs (thats roughly 50 megabytes per sec btw). So bitrate is not the issue. The main thing is hardware accelerated decoding, to offload the CPU work onto GPU, which is...

    The first clip, the roast duck one, absolutely kills it. Best 4k sample ever. The others are ok, but not as sharp and a lil noisy.

    Thx Gwimmel, ill give that noon program a shot. I had already tried HRC.exe, but it failed to detect 120hz. I have 120hz showing both on my Nvidia panel (custom res) and the windows display settings.

    Hey guys, is it possible to setup a windows shortcut to quickly switch from 4k30 to 1080p120? Cos i like to view my photos on 4k, but my shadowplay recordings on 1080p120, i wanna be able to quickly switch between them. Also, is it possible such that i can have different color saturation...

    Hey Alti, do u mean the settings within the TV? Yeah they are the same. Eg all set to 50 etc, as well as all other settings.

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Has anyone been able to find a solution to "things looking different at different modes" scenario? In my case, on 120hz 1080p, everything looks sweet. On any other mode, eg 4k 30hz or 1080p60 etc, the colors look over saturated, even though its using the same settings as the the 120hz 1080p...

    Its possible that we r all getting varied results, due to not having exact same units, running off different systems too. On mine, 24/30/60hz looks the same, which looks different to 120hz. All 1080p. Luckily, i prefer the 120hz look.

    Anyone experiencing different colors when using 1080p 120hz vs 60hz? With the same settings within the TV, im getting slightly shifted colors.

    Hey Dragon, TV buzzing noise wise, here are my findings: Before i say, let me assure you i tested it thoroughly, i even have a fanless 0db PC :) Anyways: 1) Desktop at 4k = No noise whatsoever 2) Desktop at 1080p with black background = audible buzzing noise 3) Desktop at 1080p with white...

    For games, most games are frame limited to 60 or 62, but luckily, most games' ini files can be edited to increase their max fps cap to 120fps, along with the refresh rate from within the game, or one of games' config files. Just google for each game, each has their own solution. But once set, it...

    Double check that your "just scan" setting hasnt reset, also any post processing options should be off or set to zero, like sharpness, noise reduction etc. I have noticed a small issue where the colors in 1080p120 and 4k30 dont match, even though they have the same settings, the 4k looks warmer.

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Success on my end. Just tried the 50" firmware and all good. Love playing Chivlary on 120hz 120fps now :) Scaling wise, i think i preferred the older scaling at 1080p, but this one will do fine. I find this less 'upscaled' looking, so a lil more jaggy around edges, but its only a minor...

    Hey elleana, I have the 39" 4k and viewing distance wise, on a windows desktop, around 60cm is perfect for me, thats with 125% ui scale. Think of it as a 20" 1080p screen, it has similar ppi to it. So its similar to how far u would sit with most other regular PC monitors. However, for gaming at...

    Hey again guys, thanks for the input regarding the 30fps limit video playback. I have tried the following as suggested: 1) Aero - tried disabling, no go. Its still frame limited, but now with the added tearing due to no vsync. 2) Swapped primary and secondary monitors', although this is not a...

I have been reading this thread since almost day one, looking out for info on firmware fix for 120hz...but I have given up on that. Anyways...thats another story. The reason for my post is to get...
