russell, Southampton Multi-purpose viewer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
For the money it's at a good price through Internet. Picture is good in a dark room
Remote seem ok too.
Bad points:
I'd say BEWARE the screen really struggles with light reflection, if a light is on or from sunlight.
I wouldn't have bought it had I of known this.
So much so it was purchased for the living room, I'm now keeping old one downstairs and putting this in the bedroom.
I'm just being honest! Also like every other review the sound is terrible. I've purchased a sound bar.
So for the TV to be that cheap the £ 60 for the bar perhaps not such a great deal.??? Hope this helps.

Good points:
For the Seiki SE42UA01UK:

Again I will mostly be using this as a monitor. After only a few days I can see that this is great improvement on the SEIKI SE-39UY04EC I bought almost 2 years ago. Vastly reduced input lag using it at 4K2K@30hz, lighter, Freeview HD tuner, 3 inches bigger and £100 less, HDMI2 input (No.4) allows for 60hz at max. res. makes it more comfortable for gaming. Even the plastic screen is better.

Overall. Best value 42 inch, 4K monitor ever!
Bad points:
Speakers/Audio out.


Speakers were not designed with music in mind. So for TV use a soundbar is a must. Has Optical Out but no Headphone socket so to use them you have to add a suitable male phono to 3.5mm socket adaptor cable to the supplied AV cable.

Most cables go on the left-hand side of a block on the rear. Because of this cables from the left have to be 11 inches (28cm) longer (does not affect cables from below).

Have to be careful not to over-screw feet in

IR reception for the remote is more sensitive than usual.

Good points:
Outstanding image quality
Bad points:
Very poor sound - but at the price it is easy to put some cash into a sound bar - so I would still recommend this - image is great.
