Seiki SE46FY10 is a budget class 46” LED HDTV. Though it is not one of the thinnest HDTV available in the market still the price it comes with is very attractive. The price of Seiki SE46FY10 is $350 approx., which may vary from store to store. Those who have never heard about Seiki, it is a relatively new company which had unveiled budget 4K UHD television earlier this year. However, this doesn’t matter much as long as you are getting quality picture, multiple connectivity options and good customer support.
The 46 inch HDTV offers 1980 by 1080 pixel resolution which means it supports full HD playback. The refresh rate is 60 Hz. However, nowadays budget 120Hz TV are available as well, but the 60Hz refresh rate is optimum and you won’t be able to view fast action scenes or fast sports at a lower refresh rate. This refresh rate is also appropriate if you are going to connect your PC or gaming consoles with Seiki SE46FY10 HDTV for gaming. Usually PCs send 60Hz signal, so if you hook your TV with 120Hz/240Hz TV it will fake in the rest of the frames and may create slight lag.
