Since the arrival of first 4K TVs, many have considered the idea of using them for computer monitors. Among many models available in the market, the Seiki 39-inch 4K TV seems to be a preferred choice. It is reasonably affordable at $500 and could deliver high productivity for professionals who typically open many windows on the display.
The Seiki 39-inch 4K TV comes with typical plastic back and a thin bezel around the edges. It is only about 2-inch thick, except for the bump that protrudes on the bottom. Its stand has no rotating element, but the TV comes with decent connectivity options; RCA, AUX in/out, two USB ports, three HDMI ports and others.
After some calibration, its viewing angles and colors should be quite comfortable. We would be able to watch many Chromecast and Apple TV videos easily at 120Hz and 1080p resolution.
Apple fans should be glad to know that The MacBook Pro (Edition) comes with Intel Iris Technology that supports 3840 x 2160 @30Hz and 4096 x 2160 @24. Unfortunately, the HDMI 1.4 could limit the rates, while other manufacturers have already offered HDMI 2.0 ports. Nevertheless, the Seiki 39-inch 4K TV is already a marvelous computer monitor at $500.
