Summary: The TV looks good when it's on, it's big and impressive. The problems start if you're trying to do anything other than watch TV on it. Audio in, coaxial, etc do not work on this tv. I have tried multiple devices and cables and nothing works. There is no option in the menu to switch the sound source, so I'm assuming this TV just doesn't support anything. Not worth it, Seiki is a joke and so is this TV.
Summary: I bought this as a discontinued item at a retail store , & because it was discontinued I got a good deal for it. I bought it at least a year or 2 ago & it still works. You must be wondering why I gave it 3 stars. Right out of the box I started having problems with one of the speakers which still does not work properly to this day. I also noticed that the screen is not true black and has a type of black/grey type color.
Summary: I had never heard of Seiki before but at the low price and offered by AMAZON I gave it a try to replace my old wall hung flat screen 43" Plasma TV. Due to the narrow frame it is exactly the same width and installed in the same spot as my 1st generation Plasma tv. I understand it is a little thicker and the frame is a little wider than tv's which cost 2-3 times as much. It has performed without a single problem for quite a few months. I am very pleased with it.
Summary: I didn't get mine on Amazon, saw it at sears it was only $599, and a year ago when I got it, there was nothing this big for this price. I admit i'm no expert, but have been watching tv all my life, and I am happy. A. Couple work around problems are, it only has a digital sound out, so I had to buy converter for about $30 to use some analog speakers. I love this tv though, gets decent picture after you play with it.
Summary: I am moving and in search of a large TV for my new living room. When I saw a 55 inch HD TV at this price I was blown away but having never heard of the brand I was skeptical. I put my better judgment aside and purchased this TV. After setting it up I immediately noticed it had a very strange picture quality and content looked like it was shot on very poor quality cameras. (I was watching Breaking Bad and X-Men on ATT Uverse and my Playstation 3 respectively).
Summary: I have been waiting over 6 weeks to get my Seiki SC-552GS TV repaired. 3 months 6 days after I bought my NEW TV, it quit working. The TV would not turn on with remote or turn on manually. Now after over 6 weeks of waiting for parts to come in to repair it, they tell me that it might be 6 or 7 more weeks before they GET THE PARTS IN FROM CHINA. I asked why the ad said they were made in US. He says they are assembled here but all the parts come from China.
Summary: The television is enormous so if you want to feel like you are inside of that movie you're watching this is the one for you. The price was reasonable. I had gone looking on Amazon and Sam's Club for LCD TV's and this was the best price for the size. It would have never fit in my car. It lack some of the screws to attach the base to the TV so I had to go and get screws.
Summary: This tv is a great deal. Purchased this set for 650 out the door. My friends were amazed at the picture quality. Other tvs were priced at 900 and up. I'm telling you this is a great tv. amazon delivered it within 5 days to my door.
Summary: Bought this based on the excellent reviews online. I must say I was very impressed. I own LG and Samsung LCD's this one is just as good! Great picture, nice sound, the High Def looks amazing. Lots of options, computer works great on it!
Summary: 55" seems to have become the standard size for a living room TV these days. This TV doesn't look that bad from the front for a bargain TV, but it is almost 5" thick which is quite large this day in age for LCD TVs. One guy said the picture was amazing, I beg to differ. Yes it is 1080p with 120Hz, but they did not include any of the hardware/software to make proper use of any of those features.
