Was a fraction of the price I paid for a pair of 1920x1080 24" Dells I used previously, and it does look lots better than those.
Dave, do you use the Seiki monitor as your user interface monitor when editing? Right now I edit with Premiere Pro CC 2014 and I have a 25" HP as my user interface with all of the windows, panels, etc. I've found that it's a bit small for me but I'm not sure if 39" would be too big or not. If this is how you use it, what resolution does your computer output to the monitor? 1080p? 4K?

Re: Not sure if UHD is going to be like 720p was.

I put together a cheap Haswell build that outputs 4K with the on board Intel chipset, so I have a 4K desktop, it's taller than the 24" screens, but not THAT much, and it's actually narrower that the 2 24's side by side. It's more or less equivalent to an array of 4 (2x2) 20" 1920x1080 monitors, but without the bezels and moving between monitors you have with a multi-monitor setup.

It can take a little re-sizing to find the spot where font's and such are not overly small, but I found the efficiency when you have multiple windows open can't be beat. There are a few other quirks, calibration was a bit tricky, but it's good enough for my needs, overall nothing that isn't worth working around, especially for the low price of admission - Tiger direct has 'em brand new for well under $400 right now on ebay...
