Seiki SR4KP1 Blu-Ray Player Review

The Seiki SR4KP1 is a region-free Blu-ray player that can play discs from almost any country. It is very affordable compared to similar players and comes with a 90-day warranty. The Seiki also includes a HDMI cable. Most manufacturers do not include an HDMI cable with their players.

The SR4KP1 supports both standard DVDs and HD Blu-ray. It also has built-in Wi-Fi. It is also easy to use and has an intuitive menu system. This player is also compatible with most home theater systems. It can also stream content from online services like YouTube and Netflix.

In general, the Seiki has very good picture quality. Its screen is relatively uniform, has light black levels, and a decent amount of detail. Its color accuracy is below average, but it is not bad. However, it cannot compete with most other TVs in its price range when using non-4K content.

On the other hand, it is not a good choice for gaming. The screen only supports 4K at 30Hz, which means it will suffer from noticeable input lag, especially when using high frame rate PC video games. It also lacks HDCP v2.2, which is necessary for some modern PC video sources.

The Seiki's native resolution is 3840 x 2160, and it can support up to 4K output via an HDMI connection. It will, unfortunately, overscan most HD formats, and this can significantly degrade image sharpness. The TV's upconversion engine isn't very good, and it can cause some colors to look overly muddy. In addition, it introduces more than 30ms of lag when displaying a PC desktop, which is unacceptable for most gamers.
