Seiki's 4K entry over $500 off.
Seiki Digital's SE50UY04, the 50 inch UHD LED LCD set, is currently selling for $966 on Amazon. The normal price of industry's most accessible UHD set is $1500.
Reception for Seiki's 4K set has been mostly positive, with the grand caveat of it being a UHD set without a UHD content pipeline. Multiple 4K devices are inbound, however, including Sony's FMP-X1, the Sony PS4, and Microsoft's Xbox One.
Ultimately, for most people a UHD set without UHD content makes little sense. Some would prefer to at least have a new HDMI spec or DisplayPort before jumping in, still even more people swear that UHD is merely the most marketable snake oil to date. Nevertheless, in June of 2013 Seiki is offering a UHD set for less than a $1000, making their set the cheapest early adopter option by far.
