GREAT bang for the buck

Antoine Prince, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: This television looks amazing. It doesn't have all of the bells and whistles, but as far as an HD display this television is a great choice. My box was banged up something fierce... But the television has worked the entire time, no problems. Biggest downfall... Is most media is still just 1080P... So the only 4k I can get is through plugging my computer into the display.

Not for Verizon Fios - Customer Service is a joke

David Clark, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: The picture itself is fine. In fact, what 4K I have seen is stunning. Here's the thing though - the sound STINKS and at minimum volume is still really loud. It's like listening to Mozart on a transistor radio. Here's the strange thing - If you have Verizon Fios, don't expect to use your remote on this TV. No matter what key you press on the Fios remote, it will either raise of lower the volume. It's really the oddest thing.

HDMI ports dying

Glenn C., Newegg
9 March 2014
  • Pros: Fairly decent picture. No dead pixels.
  • Cons: At max resolution hooked to my NVidia GTX 750 the ports all failed. HDMI port 1 would blink continually from the moment I plugged in to it. HDMI port 2 worked for a few hours before starting to blink out. HDMI port 3 worked fine for a week before it started to cut out. So now I'm stuck at 1080p, which works. I'm returning it. Can't say for certain its not my new video card, but I suspect the TV. I have no other 4k TV to test against.

Pretty freekin awesome

Tom L., Newegg
5 March 2014
  • Pros: Running 3 of these (separately), one off a 2013 macbook pro retina (15") via HDMI at 4k resolution (I didnt think the HDMI would suffice but I was wrong), image quality is AWESOME, and the price (I paid $500 on sale) was unbelievable. The other two are running off of GTX 760's on hackintosh systems, works flawlessly.
  • Cons: One display came without any HDMI cable, no screws to attach the stand and no instructions or remotes. I'm sure this was not a normal scenario, but still...not good to not have a decent quality control team ensuring things like this doesn't happen. Imagine if this order was sent to Hawaii, the poor guy would have to ship it back, wait another few weeks in order to get another. I'd be livid.

Very Satisfied

Aleksey S., Newegg
5 March 2014
  • Pros: This TV is a great monitor. After setting a custom resolution, updating firmware, and reducing sharpness to 0 the TV runs great at 1920x1080@120HZ. and 4k@30hz over HDMI. Everything looks great.
  • Cons: One star deduction because the TV will not automatically start installing new firmware through USB, which is what the manufacturers side has in the instructions. You have to go through the service menu and that voids the warranty. Also, because you can't sit that close to it. you need to sit a good 8 feet back to fully enjoy how crisp the image is.

Works as Specified

  • Pros: After much research, I settled on buying this 4K "TV" as a PC monitor. At its price, I have no regrets. Its resolution fantastic for use with really large spreadsheets, software development, document reading, web browsing, etc.
