Seiki will launch a “PC-friendly” 28-inch 4K TV for just $399 later this year. Seiki has also announced a new 32-inch 4K TV addition to its 4K line-up that already includes 39 to 65-inch 4K TVs.
Seiki to launch 28" 4K monitor for $399
Dell, Asus, and Samsung all have 28-inch 4K monitors coming out, and Seiki is joining them with the 28-inch SE28UY04 model that will sell for just $399 - lower than all of the other variants.
The design of the 28” 4K monitor has not been revealed, but it could look like Seiki’s existing 4K models
The 28-inch 4K panel is the first one positioned as an actual PC monitor by Seiki, although many of their 4K TVs are already being used as monitors. Given its resemblance to the 28-inch monitors announced by the other PC monitor makers we think it is safe to assume that it uses a TN panel. The model name ends on UY04, which means that it is part of Seiki’s first-generation 4K line-up, which also means that it is likely capped at 4K at 30 frames per second via HDMI 1.4. However, Seiki has not confirmed any technical details yet.
Seiki’s 28-inch monitor will feature three HDMI ports and one D-SUB (VGA). No other details have been announced.
Seiki is also launching a 32-inch 4K TV. Pricing details have not been announced, but it will most likely fall between the $599 39-inch 4K TV and the $399 28-inch 4K monitor. The two new small-size 4K products are expected to hit the US market in the first half of 2014.
Seiki has also announced a new line-up of “Pro” 4K TVs with HDMI 2.0, and as a result prices on the current 4K TVs have been slashed to $599, $899, $999, and $1799 for 39, 50, 55, and 65”, respectively.
