Seiki and PC Perspective Are Giving Away a Pair of SM40UNP 40-in 4K 60 Hz Monitors!

Subject: Displays | June 18, 2015 - 10:10 AM |
Tagged: video, sm40unp, Seiki Pro, seiki, gleam, giveaway, contest

Earlier today we posted our review of the Seiki Pro SM40UNP monitor, a 40-in behemoth with a 4K resolution and 60 Hz refresh rate. Clearly this is not a monitor for mere mortals: you must have an impressive system to push out the pixels required for a 4K display and also have the desk space for a display that many would considerable sizeable for a TV!

View Full Size

Not only was Allyn impressed with the color capability of the display and the sheer size of the monitor, it offers some interesting features and capabilities including four simultaneous video inputs! Be sure you check out Allyn's full write up on the display that resulted in a Gold Award from the staff.

But let's get to the important news for this post: Seiki was willing to give us two of these monitors to hand out to our readers and viewers. That's right, two of you will be taking home a 40-in 4K 60 Hz monitor for your gaming PC! (Or for productivity and work, who are we to judge?)

The method is simple:

  1. Fill out the entry form below. You can enter through one or all of the methods listed but the more entries you include the better your chances! Seiki is particular interested to see all the 4K-ready gaming rigs our readers have built!
  2. It's stated in the Gleam form but it is worth reiterating here: all entrants will be sent one email from me (Ryan) with a coupon code for Seiki monitors that you can use on a purchase if you don't win one of the giveaways. You are not being signed up for some kind of mailing list or marketing list and your email address will never actually go to Seiki - I will send out the emails myself.
  3. The contest is open to anyone in the world. So enter away!
  4. The contest will end at 11:59pm on June 19th (EST)

Win a Seiki Pro SM40UNP 40-in 4K 60 Hz Monitor!!

Good luck to all entrants and a HUGE THANKS goes out to Seiki for providing these kick-ass prizes for our readers and viewers!

If you have the ability to type on this website and enter this contest you are already a winner. The losers are those who can't afford the time to enter these contests or afford to pay for broadband internet to watch these PCPER livestreams.

You always miss the shots you don't take.

Only had my current video card for about a year, but this would certainly give me a reason to upgrade ;)

June 5, 2015 | 07:56 PM - Posted by Cobra1one (not verified)

I bought a 780Ti a little over a year ago thinking I'd be running it for awhile. Now that 4K monitors are coming way down in price I find myself eyeing the 980Ti an awful lot. Hopefully the 390X will be even better. Leaked specs indicate it will come in an 8 GB variant which I think gives it an edge on the 980Ti's 6 GB. GTA V is uses around 5.3 GB VRAM maxed out at 4K (I think) which is already pretty close to maxing out the 980Ti. The plan to SLi/Crossfire in the future makes an 8 GB frame buffer a better choice for longevity as long as the GPU performs well.

Maybe you guys should give away extra desk space as well as the monitor...

June 5, 2015 | 03:31 PM - Posted by Josh0608

It would be really interesting playing pc games on a 40 inch. I've been using 27 inch for years now but hey i would love to give it a try!

June 5, 2015 | 03:39 PM - Posted by YTech

I play PC Games on a 60" TV. No matter the angle, it's a nice view. If only I would have better hardware, I could enjoy the beautiful landscapes in the new releases! -- e.g. Witcher 3

With a larger display, you don't have to crouch over as much and don't have to be 6" away from the screen. So, you'll enjoy it if you go from 27" to 40" + 4K :)

this gleam thing seems really dodgy

June 5, 2015 | 04:08 PM - Posted by Ryan Shrout

Why's that? We have had nothing but success with it for several months.

June 5, 2015 | 05:37 PM - Posted by Basil (not verified)

Is this monitor flicker free, Ryan?

June 7, 2015 | 04:17 AM - Posted by DanWally

I like that "Anonymous" is commenting on the "dodginess" of another service. I like Gleam. (And my teeth have never been whiter!)

June 5, 2015 | 03:34 PM - Posted by YTech

A 40" display, and at 4K supported resolution!

That's huge! I'm still stuck, at work, with a 19" and checking to get a 24".

I think a 3rd display would be best for the 4k gaming rigs :D

For everyone else, dual is ideal!
Best of luck everyone! :D

June 19, 2015 | 06:53 AM - Posted by Edmond (not verified)

For work you want a 27" flicker free 1920x1080 IPS panel.

Doesnt get more comfortable than that.

June 5, 2015 | 03:36 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

I used to have this monitor and returned it. The picture quality is beyond atrocious. Just horrible.

June 5, 2015 | 04:13 PM - Posted by Allyn Malventano

I don't think this is the same monitor you 'used to' have. This one just came out.

June 5, 2015 | 09:05 PM - Posted by Admiral_Akbar

This sounds like a clear case of time travel!

ps. I'm loving all the global contests. Thanks for sharing the love to the readers outside of the US.

Oh wow this so b-e-autiful.its screaming to be mounted on to the wall. Which I most certainly will do if I won this epic prize.

June 5, 2015 | 04:09 PM - Posted by BBarker2262

Good luck to everyone! I play on either a 32 or 46 inch 1080p TV and have been itching to get into 4k, esp if I upgrade to the 980Ti!

June 5, 2015 | 05:27 PM - Posted by Unaccounted4

I'd like to win this one, if nothing else than just so you can say you shipped a thousand dollars worth of hardware to Portugal and claim you broke the economy.

... Which sadly is not that far off from the truth.

June 5, 2015 | 05:35 PM - Posted by Basil (not verified)

I have the BenQ GW2760HS AMVA monitor and the colors on this monitor look a lot better than any other monitor I've laid my eyes on.The problem though is the 1080p resolution. 1080p on a 27 inch monitor is lame! Things don't look as sharp and crisp as they should.

I'd love to get this 4K PVA display! I'm a fan of VA displays... until Oled monitors come out )

June 5, 2015 | 05:36 PM - Posted by Matt (not verified)

I have sli GTX 970's pushing a 720p 22" ledtv. Help me get my monitor situation out of the gutter and up to par with my system!

June 5, 2015 | 05:46 PM - Posted by owcraftsman3610

Okay funkydoodle here. Can you split the screen with say 3840x1080 to game with and 2x 1920x1080 above or below that to monitor desktop or is it just a 4 way split? or maybe even two 3480x1080?

June 5, 2015 | 05:54 PM - Posted by JackNF (not verified)

I'd imagine if you do the 4-way split you could use eyefinity or surround to meld a pair of 1080p signals into a single 3840x1080 'multi-display' setup.

Wow, 40" as a monitor? I'd love to try it out

June 5, 2015 | 07:30 PM - Posted by iamstarfox

This Seiki monitor has so much wonderful screen real estate! I think the 28" 4K monitors out there are a bit too small. They're fine for 4k gaming and viewing 4k video, but don't provide the usable screen real estate I'm looking for. This 40" 4K Seiki would be great for productivity!

A new monitor would be nice. Right now I'm running a Viewsonic VX922 from ~2006 (1280x1024).

It already stopped working once around 2010, but I was able to repair it by removing a few capacitors and soldering replacements. At the same time, the plastic front on the power button broke off, so ever since I've been using a small screwdriver to reach the tiny power button inside the chassis to turn the thing on.
