Consumer review (newegg.com)

Was fine until the backlight went out 1 year later

 

Has good picture and sound.

Does not come with QAM tuner so I could not receive my cable companies HD programming. I got 1 year of use out of it before the backlight went out.

Good picture ok audio bad life.

 

I would not buy again. I'm a few weeks over the 1 year warrant.

for a cheap TV, the picture was good. Sound was ok. Looks ok Lightweight

got it last Christmas, 2014, and it is used in a guest room. Backlight went out today with guests over.

Great price on a good tv.

 

I purchased this on sale for $159.99 and at that price it was cheaper than most 32" tv's. I don't think that this tv would be worth its suggested $429.99 price, but for under $200 it's a steal!

Good picture quality and good sound quality.

None so far.

It's dead, Jim

 

Eh, I bought 2. One is still kicking and one isn't. Your mileage may vary.

Was decent while it lasted

Screen won't turn on any longer. Looks as though the backlight controller has died ; Called the manufacturer warranty service line and was disconnected after 12 minutes on hold. That was a bummer

Don't get. Unless you want to replace it in 3-7 months

 

Steer clear of this T.V. and pay a little more for a more reputable/reliable brand. From what I've heard Seiki Customer service is junk. Hopefully the RMA process goes well.... or im out $260...

At first, this was a great deal. The picture is outstanding (After adjustments of course) and the sound I thought was good enough for me, since I have never really used any good sound systems, it was good. It has been outstanding for the past 7 months,...

The picture just flat out stopped showing. I still get audio through the speakers (HDMI), just no image/video, nothin'. When I mean no video, you can't even see the Menus pop-up for the T.V. I barely even used the T.V. in the 7 months I have owned it,...
