Sceptre E325BV-HDH


Find the E325 on sale at a chain retailer—for about $400, this is a solid 32-inch HDTV.

The Sceptre 24″ E246BD-FHD LED HDTV / Monitor with DVD Player Review


When we built our house, for various reasons we decided not to put a TV in every room; we installed one 55″ LED VIZIO on the wall in the living room with all the home theater options, and we called it good. Well, sometimes the best laid plans don't...

Not what I expected, but fair


Bought for family member whose biggest complaint about his old 17'' 4:3 LCD was the limited viewing angle, since he watches a lot of TV. I thought that this 24'' display would be great for him, as the manufacturer and retailer listed the viewing angle...

Features were impressive, and contrast and color was good. Backlight bleed was not bad. Low power consumption. The stand base was easy to put together and has a rotating bottom. Not a bad LCD panel if you know what to expect

Panel had a stuck (hot) pixel a few inches from the top of the screen. Inputs are on the bottom and hard to get to. VGA input was noisy. Glossy plastic is hard to clean fingerprints from. Stand base was difficult to remove once attached. No cables

GREAT HDTV for the price.


SCEPTRE'S T.V. was great right out of the box. The color is vivid & it just took a little tweeking & WOLO you can have the on-screen picture that you are looking for.Standard definition is great but the High Definition is beyond my belief .This T.V is...

PICTURE in sd & hd are great ; Design will fit any room for fashion ; GREAT price for a 1080p resolution LCD T.V

sound is O.K. but could be much better forthis T.V ; no PI or POP as advertised

Good Picture

Short Life ; Picture failed after only a year. A known problem many people have had the same problem. I will never buy a Sceptre product again

Good buy


I've used several Sceptre monitors and TV's over the past 10 years and have not been dissappointed.

I bought this 42" set about 3 years ago to replace a 32" that just wasn't large enough. I wall mounted this in my workshop at home for viewing from the covered patio. Distance is about 20' and size is good. Picture is bright enough to watch during the...

The angle on the IR receiver is narrow and the remote needs to be directly in front of the set to work correctly. Not a huge deal

Good Run


I would probably purchase another Sceptre product with an equal or better deal.

Given the price, specs, and connectivity options, this wasn't a terrible purchase. Resolution and colors mirrored those of my other monitors at the time of purchase

Almost 5 years since I bought it and it finally dies on me... or just decides to play its own loud rendition of dubstep until unplugged again. Hadn't had any issues until that point, however. I've had monitors die faster

Love Sceptre


This really is an amazing piece of equipment for the price of a tablet and, if you're eyes are getting old like mine, it makes a dang fine monitor.

Back when I owned a computer shop, I sold a ton of Sceptre monitors. I loved them because they had a good profit margin and low return rate. I bought this as a second monitor so I could watch TV when I was working on boring stuff. I was pleasantly...

You have to upgrade your service to HD if you want to watch TV in 3D, had I RTM I would have known that
