The biggest problem with the Seiki TVs as monitors is that they are limited to 30hz
Oh god. Why did they even bother making that? Who would be satisfied with that? --- Intel i5 4670K | Corsair 16GB DDR3 | Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB | ASUS 27" 1440p Corsair 480GB SSD | WD 4TB HDD | Fractal Design R4 | Corsair 750MX | Win7Ult 64

Probably everyone that will be using the product as intended, as a TV.

I guess it would be alright for people who aren't using it for gaming. If you do a lot of spreadsheet work, 30hz wouldn't be a very high priority.
I still think it is crazy they didn't put a Displayport in it. The port has no licence fees. A 50" 1080p Panasonic ST60 is going to have much better picture quality at the same price range. The PC monitor market by contrast, doesn't have anything at the moment that can compete with a 39" 4k display. Seiki is missing out on a lot of money by not offering 60hz.
I just noticed that they really do advertise it as a monitor as well, so the lack of Displayport is quite odd.
