Okay while under warranty, after that, failure...


Most likely I won't be buying Sceptre products again.

Cheap, no stuck pixels

I bought two, the DVI input on one failed 1 month out of its 'Limited 1-year Warranty', the input on the other failed 2 months later ; Also, as noted in other reviews, the color is a bit off. A bit of tweaking makes it acceptable for gaming, but not...

Great for its pire


I think I paid somewhere in the neighborhood of 110 for this some months back. If I needed to replace a monitor on a budget and this same offer were available, knowing what I know now, I would snap order this unit.

Clear picture. Hue saturation problems were not close to as bad as other reviewers made out, and what was there was quickly Calibrize'd out. No pixel problems

Stand mildly wobbly, but it's not as though I spar with it. Problems shutting off during hibernation mode with an XP rig, but not with Win 7 so far. Finish collects dust

Great Monitor


Had some difficulty trying to get the levels set appropriated with my monitor calibrator, but that may not be the fault of the monitor itself.

Great color and sharp picture


Consumer review by:

Excellent monitor


Would recommend to anyone. Bought one for my parents and aunt too.

Does what its supposed to do and looks great doing it. No blur I can see

One pixle died in over a year of 18 hours a day service maybe this should be in the pros

Great monitor


Excellent value for money

Fantastic monitor


Great resolution and color. I bought mine when it was very well priced. I've had another LCD Scepter monitor for 5 years, so I'm not worried about the quality

Shiny black plastic leaves finger prints

Sometimes I have to ctrl+ a webpage because the text seems so small. Graphics look beautiful on this res. Given the chance, I would buy this all over again.

High res., glossy and attractive. It's durable (lasting without any damage through a 3,000 mile road trip in the back seat that included snow and icing over)

The color took a long time to get sorted out. It reverted back to its out-of-the-box color state multiple times, resulting in much frustration trying to adjust it yet again ; I don't like that the stand can't be adjusted. It just sits at that level,...

Good dependable monitor


I got it on sale, not sure if I'd pay full price considering it's just 21.5".

Have been using this monitor for well over a year - and use it a lot. Colors are good, picture is sharp

None. Out of the box I had to adjust some colors to get it to look right but thats nitpicking

Consumer review by:

Worked while it lasted


Almost unbearable to play games, the color flickers on certain colors. very very disapointed, tried to contact customer support on their site, nothing but dead links =( I will never buy Sceptre again

it worked great with a simple adjustment to color

started flickering after about a month
