I know there are folks here on the forum that are using 4k televisions with their Flex/SSDR. I was wondering if you might comment on which television you are using and which video card you are using to drive it. I'm also curious if anyone is using a television that provides a 60hz or faster scan rate. Pictures of how they fit in your shack would also be a plus.

I use a Seiki 39" 4K tv as a monitor because it was crazy cheap and I wanted to try 4k as a monitor.  Last I saw they were going for around $250.  It has a pretty low refresh rate (30hz) and quality isn't super, but its fine for SSDR.  I actually ended up getting a high end video card because I wanted to play some PC games, so I'm using a Asus Strix GTX 980.
