Summary: I've had this for about a month now and so far I am pleased with it. If you don't have any 4K sources, this will look pretty much like any other 1080P unit out there. Nice picture, horrible sound. I got a u-vision cable for my Blu-ray player to upscale the image to 4K and what a huge difference that makes. The picture quality is unbelievable. If you don't plan on using the 4K, there are probably better sets out there at this price point.
Great TV, especially for the price. Just don't get a used one!

Summary: ** UPDATED ** I originally purchased the Seiki SE50UY04 50-Inch UHD-TV Used in "Very Good" condition from Amazon Warehouse Deals, but after the screen shutoff after an hour of use I had it returned (for free). You can find the problems/review on the first TV at the bottom of this review. Below is the review on the NEW Seiki SE50UY04 50-Inch UHD-TV, purchased from Amazon. Just a little background on me: I am a photojournalist and editor for an NBC station.
Summary: THE STAND WAS NOT USER FRIENDLY TO ASSEMBLE. MANUFACTURING DEFECT. SHATTERED INTO A MILLION PIECES! CALLED TOLL FREE AND YOU WERE PROMPTED TO LEAVE A MESSAGE & YOU WOULD BE EMAILED A RESPONSE WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS. "CUST SVCE" WAS ONLY OPEN MON THRU FRI. A REAL JOKE OF A COMPANY!! A REAL HEAVY SET!! SET ITSELF WEIGHS ABOUT 65 #'S. STAND ADDS ANOTHER 13 #'S TO THAT!!
Summary: this is so awesome, YOU MUST GET THE SEIKI U-VISION CABLE FOR IT TO UPSCALE. blu-rays from red box get upscaled to 4k , my video games get upscaled to 1080p at 60hz. amazon prime tv is still 1080p going through my ps3. very little motion blur considering the price and the size and the upscaling. very bright, hue contrast are overly adjustable, i found that i had to turn the sharpness almost all the way down because it was such a sharp image.
