Great TV!

 

I purchased this TV specifically for price point and ports on the back. I like analog audio output, so that I can output sound to a stereo, and I also like the VGA input from a computer. This has both and work very well

Decent TV, horrible company

 

I bought this TV in October of 2013. It worked great until June of 2014, when it suddenly stopped working. I contacted customer support on June 16th, and was pleasantly surprised when I was told that they would just exchange my TV for a new one. The...

When it works, it's fine

When it breaks, Sceptre will do everything in their power to avoid taking responsibility.

Nice TV, unbeatable price

 

If this unit is as tough as their 32" television is, it's an excellent deal.

This Scepter is a very nice TV. Detailed 1080p picture with nice colors. Speakers are surprisingly loud with no rattle, much better than what was installed on their 32" tv. Enough input for a regular set-up. The perfect match for a 1080p console.

Used as monitor

 

No reported problems from client.

Perhaps a bit too large for a pc monitor.

Really good value

 

This is not a smart TV. No network connections of any kind.

This was really excellent value for the money. Quality of picture was quite good, bright, clear. Dark darks and bright whites.

Pedestrian sound. This is normal for this category of TVs.

Good

 

Overall, it feels best in a guest bedroom with occasional use. Dependable. Giving it to my dad and getting a 4k

The TV is very inexpensive for what you get; 1080p. 60hz, and a true crisp black screen. I used the TV as a monitor for awhile, gaming and so on, and never had any issues with input lag. It's 8ms but that's really no big deal with games like EVE...

The ugly border. It's thick, ugly, and too shiny. The stand has a slight tilt to the side and needs adjustment occasionally. Back light sometimes noticeable. The box it came in had a huge hole in the side, the back facing outwards. Not sure where that...
