I second that post. I bought the same monitor (39" Seiki 4k), but was forced to upgrade my video card to handle the higher resolution.

Bought it through Wal-Mart! They shipped it to my house for free! It was NOT damaged when it arrived.

Wonderful to not have to use multiple monitors.

It does have a tuner and speakers, but not too intelligent.

I used Waze (recently uninstalled), and I can tell you that 1 out of 100 times a cop was actually where a cop was reported. I figured that some cop somewhere was flagging a cop where there was not one (like a smokescreen)... I spent more time pushing the "thumbs down" on those reports that were not valid any more. It got to the point I could not see the route because of all the icons on the screen (and I was not looking at the road like I should).

Google navigator does fine without the "glitter", and my friends do not need to know where I am going.

That's the solution....

Then after two years of having your own modem, you start getting charged $8 a month for modem lease. I call them, they tell me that I have to PROVE to them that I am not using their modem (even though they do not use Zoom modems, and they acknowledge that), and they have no indication that they ever sent me one.

It took many months to straighten that mess out.
