Key Features


Superior 4K Picture

HDMI 2.0

Connect all your favorite devices- game consoles, blu-ray devices, laptops- and stream up to 60 frames a second. HDMI 2.0 ensures you get the best picture and audio quality from your 4K display. 

HDCP 2.2

HDCP 2.2 ensures that all the 4K content that is transferred from a source (Blu-Ray player, DVD player, etc.) to the display (the TV) is secured with copyright protection.  Bearing your convenience and future use in mind, Sceptre is compliant with HDCP 2.2 on most of its 4K UHD TVs.

Audio Return Channel (ARC)

Audio Return Channel, or ARC, uses a single HDMI connection to send audio from a TV to the SoundBar or AV Receiver.  Using one HDMI cable, video is send to the TV with an HDMI cable, and that same HDMI cable sends audio from the TV back down the same cable.

Consumer Electronics Control (CEC)

The Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) feature allows users to control HDMI connected devices with only one remote.   Since more audio content can now be accessed with ARC and CEC, entertainment just took a giant leap forward.

I love this tv, I bought this tv for my bedroom,Hooked it up in the living room to check it out, Had it for a few weeks now and is still in my living room. You can't beat the price of this television, picture is great, I have not changed any settings on this set, right out of the box it works better than my other 55 inch tv. the shipping was very fast with no damage. The remote is very cool easy to use, You should be very happy with this television, I know I am. They even sent a Philips head screw driver to attach the base. I love this TV. Thank you.

Sceptre U505CV-U 49" 4K Ultra HD 2160p

I am always ready to criticize an item for one shortcoming or another. So, when I give this five stars, believe it. Perhaps if you looked at this set right next to another more expensive brand you might see a difference. Who knows? All I can say is that my eyes are dazzled every time I turn this set on. I see more expensive sets at my friend's homes and I cannot tell a difference from memory. Great picture. As to sound. It is not great but then, TV sound seldom is. Even in old cathode ray sets which had more room for speakers, the sound was never great unless you spent $hundreds for internal sound that you could match for less than a $hundred external. It is as it always was. If sound is important to you plan to upgrade externally on all sets you buy. Quality will be better and the cost less.

What a great TV!

I have only had it a month so I really can't judge it yet. I am impressed with the color and the true black. It has a headphone jack so I can watch TV without waking up the wife, truly a special feature and an absolute necessity for peace of mind! The remote is VERY light, it doesn't have the chunk of metal inside that makes other remotes feel good in your hand.

I ordered the 4k TV simply because of price. Picture quality is outstanding, although I'm not using it for 4K. It's a great TV for the buy.

-October 10, 2016
Good Decent TV

We have the TV for over 3 months, so far so good. For the 4K viewing of pictures, you have to connect it to HDMI cable. The picture is so clear and Hi-def and big pixels...It's only $325. Just don't buy it during the holidays, it will be cracked or damaged. Comparing to LG, Samsung, RCA, etc., You can't...Really... can't find a better price than this one.

So far I am impressed with the picture. The sound isn't loud enough for me but that is because I am hard of hearing. I was nervous about it being a name I never heard of but so far it's been great. Had to adjust the picture right away. Only had it a week or two so unsure of longevity

Great inexpensive 4k TV without HDR. Good for a bedroom or 2nd family room. Sound is not great but what flat panel has good sound nowadays. Almost everyone buys a sound bar after the fact. So buy the TV while it's on sale and do the same for a sound bar at a later time.

4k at a premium price

Excellent all the way through. I have Roku 4 hooked up and the TV experience goes up 4 notches. I just wish the mini audio output volume could be adjusted by the TV remote. Otherwise, with my 5-year warranty, it's a keeper. Forget the name brands.

I purchased this about two weeks ago and it arrived on the date promised undamaged . I set it up and turned it on and with a few adjustments to the sound and pic, it's working great . Great picture, the speakers could be better but ok for now. And for the price it can't be beat, 259$. So I would definitely recommend this TV to any of my friends. Thanks Walmart...

WOW !!!!

late 2009 27" imac. hdmi 2.0 cable is streaming 1080p with audio to my new 49" 4k display at 60hz ! These older imacs can only stream 30hz at 1080p but this tv has a built in upscaler. I must say for a 49" display the picture stunning. Text is very crisp and you tube videos are just as good. I has to adjust some color,brightness and sharpness. I scaled to 100% mode and its flawless. No lag with the mouse whatsoever. I use this display as a "seperate display" to my imac for music production. i also stream videos from comcast and youtube to it with stunning pictures. My mac has a ATI Radeon HD 4670 256 MB graphics card which is kinda small but the tv has a chip in it that upscales to 4k. Read about it on the scepture website. That means my 1080p stream gets converted into 4k even when bandwidths are not 4k. The screen is IPS also. You have no distortion at hard angles. See the pictures. Great Tv !!!

Great TV at a fantastic price

This TV is an amazing value at this price. I was looking for an extra TV to put in my bonus room and came across this TV. I saw the name of the company and the price and was like "This has to be a terrible TV." I read the reviews and saw that Sceptre has been manufacturing Computer monitors for awhile and decided to start making TVs. After reading that I felt more comfortable with the company behind the TV. Next concern was, how good can a 4K TV be for $299(Was on sale). When I typically buy a TV I like to see it in person and compare it to the other TV's on display, but there were no Wal-Marts around me that had it in stock, so i decided to take a chance and buy it online. Even without the 4k, $299 for a 49 inch TV is a steal...

Other than that awesome buy for the money..

so far pretty good

I have only used it for less than a week, but it works perfect. It even survived a bumpy 2 day ride in a uhaul trailer! The remote (comes with batteries) and tv have lots of useful features (roku controls, sound bar controls, program guide, favorite channel, etc) the picture is excellent and the sound is good for my purposes. I will soon connect an android box to make it the ultimate smart tv. At $279 for a 4k tv, i'is s a great deal.

-September 6, 2016
Works great sound nor the best

Tv is clear and hasn't failed me yet. Can't believe the price for what I got. The only thing is the sound which is like the speakers are sealed inside a box and I havnt found a perfect way to adjust them to improve it. I'd just by a sound bar or surround sound anyway to really complete the set.

-September 5, 2016

Great value; excellent picture and features

This tv is an excellent value with a clear, vibrant picture and four hdmi connections. Clean looking with a minimal bezel and very light (22lbs). Sound is fine unless you plan on featuring this tv in your living room and need hi fidelity, in which case you could easily connect sound equipment. I set the sound on surround option which makes it more full. We use it in our rec room for kids to view and play console games on. Highly recommend unless you are looking for super hi-end with beautiful bezel and smart features.

Better display than top brand name tv

I do not like smart TVs ever since I have heard about people hacking TVs and watching you. Also, smart TVs due to technology, I think, go obsolete quicker. With this TV I will be able to upgrade my DVD players and the new player will usually have the latest technology...plus I have never heard of a hacker, hacking your dvd player to watch you. So about THIS TV ...the resolution of the display makes 1080 broadcasts look very detailed...and when you see a 4K movie the picture is simply stunning. I did not do anything to adjust the colors, I just chose a mode the manufacturer had programmed in and it looks great....

garyt27apachejunction -August 27, 2016
Very nice picture, great deal!

This is a great deal at $279. Sound is mediocre, so I have a soundbar, but the tv remote wont control the soundbar so Sony decides you need to buy a compatable Sceptre soundbar so the remote will control it. I use my soundbars remote which is not convenient. Also you can add or delete Favorite channel setup but you cannot just delete a channel, I use an antenna not cable and get a beautiful picture. Also it is a little slow changing channels and starting up. Overall for the money, you cannot beat this TV, buy it you won't be sorry.

Good picture quality with better price

When I opened the box, I was so surprised with how light it is. My 10 year 52" Samsung weights like a ton. I guess technology changed. I set up the TV with my 13 years old with no problem. The picture quality is really really good. The only reason I gave it a 4 stars is that the screen seems not flat when the TV is off if you look at a certain angle, but it won't affect the picture quality at all.

Super Value

We purchased this television just over a week ago. All of the positive comments in these reviews are accurate. The sound is ok set on surround. The bevel and stand feet are economy but the picture quality and settings/features are surprisingly impressive for this price range. Very light and clean appearance. Standard 1080p looks excellent.

Couldn't ask for a better 4K TV. I've only had it for a few months but from what I've seen so far is pretty amazing for the price. Haven't been able to see actual 4K yet but that's my fault for not having any media in 4K.

Great Value

I bought the TV to use on my patio and I am very pleased with. This is a outstanding value for a 4K TV of this size. The picture is solid. The TV sound is not the greatest but it's not terrible either. I am using a wireless Uverse receiver on the TV and originally could not get any audio. Researched the manual and thought it might be wireless signal strength. I went to Sceptre's website and chatted with one of their customer service reps to check. They were very helpful. I learned that 3 of the 4 HDMI ports on the TV are HDMI 2.0. The receiver is still using 1.4. Once i plugged it into the 1.4 HDMI port(Port 4) it worked.

-August 19, 2016
Unbelievable Value!

I bought the 43" 4k a couple months ago and love it, was going to buy another one to replace a 2 yr old Vizio that the 43" blew away. Saw the Sceptre 50" 4k and decided to go bigger. They're beautiful TVs, why pay twice the price and more.

More bang for your buck !

Was kinda worried that the 4k would be bad but it turns out it's really good for a low end TV - and the picture is pretty clean - watching blu rays with a 4k up converting player is amazing - the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is due to the edge lit technology - but for the price it's a great buy !

Great Value 4K TV

I bought this TV for $279.99 and I couldn't be more pleased. Very happy with the picture quality. I like how the Sceptre logo is nearly transparent on the bottom of the screen. VERY pleased with the sound quality, especially after reading the negative reviews about it. We have a nice-sized living room and the sound is adequate on 10 (volume goes up to 100). Also, make sure the device you have hooked up to the TV is set to the maximum resolution. For example, we have an outdated Roku that only gets a maximum of 1080p. In order to get the 1080p, we had to manually adjust the resolution settings on the Roku. To check your resolution, just press info on the Sceptre remote. I don't have a device hooked up that can put out 4k yet, but once I do, I'll update this. We've had the TV for two weeks now!

Excellent as a Computer Monitor

Being older than I like to admit, my love of very large, multiple monitors (that I can see) on the computer led me to try this tv. You can't get a better price for a 4k tv. It's like having four 1080p screens available at the same time. Imagine Google Earth with four times the amount of the earth visible at one time. Even better, long web pages and long documents are visible without having to scroll up and down. Very nice. Of course, the graphics capability of your computer will have to support the higher resolution and multiple monitors. Video cards that can handle the 4k resolution are not expensive these days. Seriously, this tv has performed flawlessly for 6 months now. Text is very legible, color is great. Energy consumption (I measured it) is about a third of similar sized LCD tvs that I use with far less heat output. Delivery by Walmart was perfect and it is so light that I easily moved it around. I am phasing out my 2 other large 1080p televisions and am going to buy the 55" Sceptre next. (My computer desk is a conference table so I can fit three of these in front of me with a couple of smaller ones on the side.) I'm a very happy camper. Highly recommend.

I love it!

I purchased a 32-inch Sceptre 3 years ago and have enjoyed it very much so I never hesitated to give this one a try as well. The picture is really nice and the sound is no worse than any other TV (it is actually loud to my ears). It is also very light and offers great connectivity options!

-August 12, 2016
So far so good

I get this tv for the Xbox one s great price didn't except much but for less then 300 I really like this tv. Netflix looks great in 4K games play well haven't noticed any motion blur even though it's only 60mhz. The sound isn't great but you have a lot of settings to get it to be alright.

First 4k TV purchase

The television arrived by fed ex and no damage was done during shipping. The box arrived intact. Unpacking we found the TV Stand which looks like two boomerang metal pieces, a screwdriver, 4 screws, remote control with batteries. The enclosed booklet is more like a sheet of paper with the basics on it. Setup was a breeze and the picture is stunning with direct TV, and an Xbox one. The sound is amazing and would be even better with surround sound which is my next purchase. The TV is very light weighing in at 33 pounds. It has 4 hdmi inputs and east to reach locations. Definitely pick this TV up at this price for a 4k you cannot go wrong.

An Exceptional 4K UHD LED TV for the Price!

I couldn't be more pleased with this Sceptre U505 4K UHD LED TV. As others have mentioned, the sound quality isn't that great but this was to be expected from a flat panel TV. One note about the sound: the defaults have the bass and treble set in the middle. If the bass is turned up and the treble down a bit, this improves the sound quality where it doesn't sound so tinny. Also, if SurroundMode is checked, this widens the sound and gives considerable improvement as well. As far as the display, let me just say the 4K UHD resolution on this Sceptre looks absolutely phenomenal! I also like the fact that two of the HDMI (as well as USB & coax) are located on the side panel in the back for easy access. I've seen reviews that the menu options are overly complicated, but I haven't found this to be the case at all. I had a bad experience with Walmart's shipping of this item. UPS tracking showed "in processing" for almost a week, think it never left the warehouse! However, after an online chat with a Walmart representative the shipping was finally corrected and I did receive a partial refund for the hassle, which was nice. Anyway, would highly recommend this Sceptre U505 4K UHD LED TV. It's an exceptional LED TV for the price! A+A+A+

Good quality, picture, sound, and price

Excellent TV, with Ultra High Definition, at 2160p and 4K Resolution. Priced at $280. The next one on the 4K UHD 50" category is priced $430; so this one is about 34% less expensive. But don' let the price miss lead you, You'll be getting a high quality TV. I compared the picture quality side by side with the Vizio, the Sharp and the Hisense and this Spectre was similar if not better than the rest. Features: It has 1 x Component/Composite Video, 3 x HDMI, 1 x Headphone, 1 x Optical Digital Audio, 1 x PC Audio In, 1 x RCA Audio L+R, 1 x RF (Coaxial), 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x VGA Speakers are pretty loud and sound quality is very good as well. They are rated at 20W, 10W per channel. Options for Stereo and Surround Sound. Not bad either one. I have played with both and actually some action movies sound better in Stereo while musical type of programs or drama movies sound better in Surround. Again, preference and know how to adjust.....

Great Picture!

I bought a 32" about a year ago and I love it,no problems whatsoever.I saw this set on sale at Walmart and jump on it.After reading some reviews about having to buy a separate soundbar,none was needed,in my case.The upscaling of over the air channels is terrific.

good tv for the price

Easy to purchase online and pick up in store. I used my Walmart savings dollars and got an even better deal on the tv. The picture is very sharp and great color. The volume is a little tinny so I bought a sound bar (Visio for $30 at Walmart). it made a huge difference. I would recommend this tv if you are looking for an inexpensive nice quality.

Perfect gaming tv

I bought this tv for gaming specifically and it's amazing. The 60 MHz refresh rate is great for gaming too as almost any game is frozen at 30 frames a second. Movies can seem a little off at times though. Overall I am super happy with this purchase.

As with any new technology it takes a little while to figure all the settings. My only complaint is the audio set on surround sound on some programs is tinny and the jump from level 8 to 9 is big. I wish there were .5 increments

Good price, amazing picture, & best deal on a 4K

When I first seen this tv being advertised I thoughr either a typo or it was poor quality. After reading the reviews that were almost all positive I figured I had been wanting a big screen bad but evedything i had seen in the same size was double the price. So i figured a 49 inch 4k for under $300 was worth taking a risk. The pic is great an colors an reaolution all that 2. The only reason 4 instead of 5 stars is cuz its not a smart tv an the sound quality below average but went out an got an inexpensive soundbar an now im turnt up. For the price its a no brainer go get at it.

Nice 4k TV for the price

The only drawback that I have found is others have mentioned. On my x505 I could adjust the external surround sound system with the volume control on the TV. You can't on this one, unless you keep going into the sound settings and turning on the TV speakers. The setting reverts to off every time you turn the TV off. I guess because it detects something plugged in and they want you to buy a sound bar. Remote controlled computer speakers are half the price though.

-July 17, 2016
Good TV

I bought it two weeks ago and use it as an additional computer monitor. The shipment is reliable and quick. The installation is easy. I did struggle a little initially in setting up the display relationship between an existing computer monitor and the TV, but it is nothing to do with Sceptre. Once the setup is complete, it works beautifully. I am particularly happy with my choice of the 4K resolution. The screen is large and the resolution is great, much better than my computer monitor. I am very happy of with my purchase. My large screen display is so cool and comfort to my eyes.

An affordabl, large 4K TV

The picture is excellent. The sound is fine......as long as you aren't playing music. When playing music, the sound shifts constantly high and low. When watching Netflix or regular shows, the sound is normal. Very thin with minimal bezels. The led power light shines beautifully in the dark. Overall, I love the TV.

Great buy needs adjustments

This is a great TV! U definitely need to do heavy adjustments to the tv to have it look good. Out of the box I almost returned it because of poor colors and poor quality of picture. It was very dark at first but after changing the backlight to 100% and adjusting the colors it looks GREAT. I highly recommend this TV. At this price it is unbeatable. I have a 79" LG 3D TV and a 65" LG 3D tv that both cost over a few thousand dollars. While this tv is a guest bedroom tv, it pretty closely matches my more expensive TVs. The picture is quite stunning. While some of the vibrancy and pop of yellow and red are not as eye poppingly stunning as my other main TVs this TV is still very respectable and very close. It is much better then other budget tv's that colors may be very flat. This tv is not flat but just not quite 3000$ TV quality. Now I paid 3000$ for the 65" LG so I would hope it would have a better picture. Now for this price I would not hesitate to purchase this. I am very picky about accurate colors so most may not notice such sudlties as I so most may not notice. As far as clarity it is great. The 4K and 1080p as far as clarity and detail are identical to my other more costly TVs....

2nd Sceptre purchased

Twice now I've purchased one of these sceptre tvs and twice now I've been beyond pleased. Packaging is impressive and product is very well protected. TV looks nice and seems well constructed and the picture quality once again is better than my much more expensive name brand tv that is also 4k ultra. Highly recommend this brand.

Great product

I bought this back in February and have been enjoying it so much that I forgot to even register or submit a review!! We use this tv for PS4(awesome) and watching movies, i.e Netflix,Hulu,etc. It is a quality product and the screen size is great. I wish there was a game setting on the picture options though and sometimes there will be a quick flash on the screen but it's hardly noticeable by the human eye and usually only happens right when it's powered on after a couple minutes or less and not every time. Buy a Sceptre you won't be disappointed.

Brand Name

I received delivery a day before the date that was promised which is a plus. Setting up the TV was just the beginning of a more than positive experience. Doing a review of the Brand, I found that the reviews, although favorable, they did not do this V justice in the manner deserved. I am more than pleased with the picture and performance. I highly recommend this really fairly priced set with all of the quality you would expect from a more expensive well known "Brand Name" any day and my only regret is that I did not know of this bargain before I had bought two other "Brand Name" TV's. Better get your hands on one of these before they become categorized as a "Brand Name" some time in the future. I would imagine that when it catches on, the bargain will somewhat fade into obscurity.

Surprisingly good quality

The picture is awesome. The menus are hard to learn. The menus can do almost anything, you can imagine, with picture and sound. We attached the matching sound bar, with it's thin subwoofer. The subwoofer is flat enough to fit under a cabinet, out of sight. The sound is awesome. You can feel the room moving when playing action movies. Live concerts sound awesome. That subwoofer reaches deep bass like a good theatre sound system. How could they do that, in a thin speaker cabinet, with a tiny speaker facing the floor? Never had this brand before, but we love it.

Excellent 4K TV

Checked reviews from various sources over the web and all were pleased with display and the majority had suggestions for better sound. Ordered it and upon arrival using the Walmart 3 day package deal - TV panel had an exceptional display. Tuned color, temp etc. just because I have a tuning DVD ( it was actually decent out of the box). Speaker performance was good and sufficient for someone who does not want to rattle their neighbors windows. This TV is setup lengthwise in a long rectangular room with vaulted ceiling and even the bass is fine here. Price is best yet and Walmart's return policy can't be beat. Inputs are plenty and the non-amp'd audio output was an unexpected bonus.

An Owner That is Tried and Tes

When I moved into my new home 9+ years ago, I purchased 4 Sceptre TVs. I had never heard of Sceptre before I bought these TVs. I bought 2 - 42" TVs & 2 - 23" TVs. I have had to replace one of the Sceptre TVs (a 23" one). It just died. I had put that one in our kitchen and it got a tremendous amount of use. One of the 42" ones was placed in our bedroom and is still going strong. It gets from 5-6 hours of viewing per day. You figure out the amount of enjoyable viewing this set has given us! When I saw an advertisement for the U505, a smart TV with 4K and 49", I thought that since I would like a smart TV and since I have had nothing but pleasurable viewing with my 9+ year old Sceptre, why not buy it. Based on my experience(s) with Sceptre, I would recommend to anyone to purchase this brand. It may not carry the so-called "prestige" of owning one of the more well known brands, but who cares about "prestige" when the performance of the Sceptre brand is every bit as good as those other brands and all of the same "bells and whistles" are available at considerably less. I say, "Kudos to Sceptre!! Keep up the good work!"

Best Value for Money

This is my fourth Sceptre TV. The big difference now is that this is a 4k TV. It has 4HDMI ports, so I am able to connect my ROKU player, DVD player, Chromecast, and my new laptop. Everything worked well out of the box. The other thing to note is its weight, it is just around 20+ pounds, so it was so easy to install on my wall. Note that this is one of the lightest TV for this size, based on my personal comparison among several brands. Why would people buy more expensive TV's when a cheaper one would actually deliver the same goods? In theory, the more expensive ones are actually better, based on some "science". But the reality is that the ordinary human eyes won't notice the difference. So I stick with this brand.

Just got this TV delivered March 9. It arrived with the picture settings way off, which is typical for TVs. After adjustment it looks pretty good. The audio is poor. We'll probably have to add external speakers. We haven't figured out how to use the 2160p upscaling yet. It's not obvious. We bought this as a bedroom TV. For that purpose and a delivered price of $375, it's a good deal.

I don't think you can get a better picture for your price. If you adjust the colors of the TV everything 1080p and up looks awesome. They look way better than my oldn1080p tv. Everything below 1080p looked better on on my old 1080p TV. If you don't change the colors out of the box only 2k and 4k will look great.

For best picture use these settings.

For the people who complain about picture color, contrast and clarity. They are probably using the default settings. Once you calibrate it properly to the lighting environment you will view it in you will notice a huge difference in color quality. In have this set up in a den with soft 60 watt lamps. I used a calibration DVD, to calibrate the picture settings. The best calibration DVD to use for beginners is Disney's World Of Wonder. Here are the settings I came out with. Brightness: 65 Contrast:43 Color: 42 Tint: +1 or +2 Keep in mind for each source you to enter these values. Also keep in mind to use these settings as a guide. The lighting in your room may be different than mine, so I reccomned picking up your own calibration DVD and spend 30 minutes running through the calibration tools.

This is a steal! (Feb. 2016)

This tv is amazing -- in its own right as a display/TV -- but also because it's a good $100-200 less than any other 49" 4K tv that I've seen online or in stores (at the time of this writing). I got this tv to serve as an external display for a 2015 Retina Macbook Pro. It looks fantastic. The speakers were skimped on, I'm sure, to keep costs low. But it has a digital out (and you can utilize this connection, or, if you're like me, send the audio from your computer to another set of speakers. As a hobbyist audio engineer, you're truly missing out if you only have a soundbar, anyway. If you're shopping for a 4k tv, buy a good set of speakers. They're not expensive anymore.....

-February 1, 2016
Better then expected

We were not expecting anything special in this TV due to the price. However, it turned out to be as sharp and clear as our much pricier 4K LED TV. We definitely recommend this set to our friends.

I saved about a $100 dollars on the TV and $75 dollars on the mount by getting them on line as opposed to buying them in store. Walmart shipped them to my home for free in about 2 weeks. All items arrived in good shape and the TV and mount went up together with only a small amount of modification to the assembly. The Sceptre 4k picture with a standard HD signal through Direct TV is as sharp as my SAMSUNG 55 inch HD SMART TV which is awesome. I can't wait to start seeing some of the 4k programing that Direct TV is going to offer soon. I have never purchased a SCEPTRE product before so I got the extended 4 year warranty from Walmart just in case I need it for around 50 bucks. With that said I have to say at this point that I am satisfied with MY 4K purchase and if this TV lasts as long as my Samsung I will be purchasing more SCEPTRE products in the future. Forgot to mention that the Sound of the TV is likened to My other Samsung and LG products which are just ok in that area.This is a great TV for an awesome price, take the plunge but get the warranty just in case!

Top TV for the Price

Getting an ~ 50" 4K TV for under $500, let alone for only $379, is a steal. The picture is beautifully clear, with no distortion. The colors are bright, with no blurring. The sound quality is crisp. This would be a great TV at twice the price.

Good TV for Price

Good TV for price. But I agree for the price buy your self a sound bar or you will be very disappointed. I talked to a sales rep at Best Buy and he told me almost all newer TVs need a sound bar because of the size of the speakers. We like the TV itself very much and you can't beat the price.

Great TV

What a great TV for the price. Delivered to the store on the date stated. Five minute set up and channel search and you are watching an excellent picture. Get a HDMI cable that will handle the speed and specs.

Great Value for Basic Needs

Owning a Roku stick, I wanted a 4k TV which was not "Smart" for bedroom use. This met my requirements. To date, I am very pleased. As others have recommended, I have connected the TV to a sound box.

Great TV, Not for gaming

It's a really great TV for use as just that: it needs a separate sound system in my opinion however, and the lag when using it makes it unable to be used for PC Gaming really. For everything else, it's perfect!

Great TV for the price. Perfect TV for Kid's gameroom. Plenty of HDMI input for gaming systems/DVD/Roku Etc. Could have better sound, but as many other TVs, you will just need to install a sound bar if you want great movie audio.

Great TV for it's price

I had to play with the video settings a bit, but once i did i was able to get the TV at its Optimal display. The sound quality is not the best, but nothing that a sound bar cannot fix. I was able to order it through Walmart.com and it came in a few days earlier then expected. I have yet to see how the TV works on a live game and newer movies. That was the true reason on the TV. I want to see the video quality like you do on a closed Circuit TV in the electronic stores, Costco's, or BJ's. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.

Excellent value for the price.

Great clarity, easy to set up lightweight. Ordered and did a ship to store which was nice. This replaced an 8 year old 47" and the technology difference couldn't be more striking. Plenty of extra ports so there is room to add devices. It comes with an optical out to run a sound bar. I was a bit skeptical of the brand since it isn't well known, but if this one makes it 8 years it will far and away be worth the price!

artman51 -January 9, 2016
Great upscaling!

I've had it less than a week, but the day it arrived I hung it on the wall. There was a 42" 1080P there before, I have HD cable the picture is impressive! Also a Sceptre that I've had for five years with not a single problem, its now in the bedroom on the wall. I have my receiver hooked up to this TV via Optical out, sounds very very good! Would heartily recommend, not much money for the upgrade!

A pleasant surprise

I can't believe that all Walmart stores don't have this TV up and running. So far this has been a surprise and a very good experience for me. I can't also believe that there are negative reviews out there about it. To the one who is sceptical about the build, or the performance, (unless that person is a professional game player) of this TV, Put your mind to rest. It is stunning. I've yet to navigate through all its features, but right now I see rock solid performance and great picture adjustment settings. I'm in awe of the standard clarity (not 4K). Don't hesitate, at a little over $400.00 with a protection plan included you can do a lot worse in your desision making. Thank you Walmart, for affording me the opportunity to get a 4K tv at this price.

-January 9, 2016
Awesome TV

This is a great TV and an even better price. I am a gamer and love this TV I haven't had any problems with it. There is no game delay or anything. The picture quality looks awesome as well. The TV itself is also quite light if that matters to whoever may read this.

Great size for computer

Bought this "U505CV-UMC" at "Walmart" online for good price at time. Picks up local channels ok, some in HD looks good. Just need any good antenna, Waiting for something broadcast in 4K. Had to adjust computer card for good looks in windows, especially low key text and background. Windows fit screen very well, no overlap. Movies playing good. Not a smart TV, but can use 4 hdmi inputs, of which could be connected any SMART device. You know the ones not costing very much, or the computer like I did. This works great, the computer does the "SMART" and TV does the display. One of inputs will enhance source to approach 4k, looks good. Also has USB 2.0 input. I like being able to switch back and forth with TV "for ball games" and computer. You know like when set computer to do something like backing up large drives that are taking a long time, then switch to TV for a while.

Surprise can be good!1

As well as giving full 4k TV, I am using it as a 4K monitor (for my P.C.). It is fully compliant, and I am *very* pleased with the output. Gaming is crisp, responsive, and impressive. It brings "full immersion" to another level (and for hundreds of dollars less than a far smaller 4k monitor would have cost me).

Good budget tv, backlight tho?

TV is a great bargain for the cost. Bright vivid 4k for much less than other brand names. Has ARC for your sound system hookup. Have had some issues with the backlight dimming for no reason. Though it seems to clear up on its own. Wondering if this is a symptom of problems to come.

Hello! I purchased a Sony Bravia 12 months ago and felt like I over paid for name sake. Technology has come too far to exclude some lesser known vendors. I recently decided on 4k Ultra HD and purchased the Scepter 49inch Ultra HD. I read and watched every thing available on this set. The YouTube reviews are really good if you are a visual person.....

I got this during the black friday sale for $379. I see that it is currently $399 and retails on the Sceptre site for $699, marked down to $499. It is one of the least expensive 4K UDTVs available in this screen size.....

Great price / Good value

I've only had this t.v. for a couple of weeks but I have been satisfied with this product. I didn't give this t.v. a better score only because I haven't had it for long and I have yet to see how this product will stand against time. My only complaint is that I can only view jpegs from other media devices and not play my videos or music from them but what do I expect it's not a smart t.v. Also, I feel that when I try and change the tvs picture and sound options (contrast,brightness etc...) that I don't notice much of a difference in the picture or sound. To me this is very frustrating because I feel there is no room for personal taste or expression in setting up my tv. Please don't let my complaints keep you from getting this TV because I'm a very hard critique. For the price, this is a very good tv and the 4k picture is great! I mainly bought this TV because of the size and for the price and that itakes ultra HD. I played COD I I I on this TV and the picture was amazing! The industry hasn't even caught up with 4k UHD so when they do you will have the latest technology for the standard price of most LED tvs. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.

I have been waiting 4 years to upgrade from my 32 inch hd tv. I found this Sceptre tv at Walmart.com for a great price and decided to make it mine. I have had it 3 days now and I am extremely pleased with the picture quality, the sound of the tv speakers and that it was easy to hook everything up with my over the air antenna, xbox360, dvd/vcr player and my laptop. Another awesome thing is I am ready for the 4K UHD once it becomes standard. I hope this tv lasts for years to come.

Very Happy

Got this TV online for 349.00 and could not be happier!! It has 4 HDMI ports, 3 of which are HDMI 2.0 and supports MHL and ARC ( Audio return). It's not a smart TV, but let's be honest, aside form the first week or so of a new TV, how many people acutally use the apps ona smart TV? All dvd plyers, satelite receivers, game consoles, Google Chromecast and Amazon Firestick have all the apps you need. why pay twice as much for something you will hardly ever use? The sound quality is a bit lacking but for the price of this tv, you can get a nice sound bar and still be hundreds cheaper than the competitor. Video quality is as good as any TV I have seen with a suggested retail less than 800 dollars. As far as those claiming the TV stopped working? Well that happens with all brands. I've had two different brand new top tier brand TVs go out in less than two years.

Best UHD Deal

I have had this unit only a week and I am impressed! I looked at all the local retailers and checked out a lot of UHD TV's. I looked at pricing and performance to compare. I did not get a chance to see this TV because none were available at any of the dealers to view. I looked at the reviews on line and the company. I decided to buy the tv based on this information and because it was the most inexpensive unit to enter the UHD market. It was easy to put together and I had it set up in no time. Quality of picture is amazing. I have a satellite system and a BlueRay player attached. This unit has the features the others offer at hundreds of dollars less. I did not see one unit that had a better picture.

Great price hard to beat

What a great value. I was looking to buy a second tv for the bedroom and had a small budget. I found 2 tv's that fit my price range with the features I wanted. Both sold out quickly online and I wasn't willing to go to Walmart on Black Friday. I had nearly given up when I found this model. The picture is far better than my primary tv at a 1/3 the price, guess which one is in the bedroom now. This is no smart tv but a smart tv with these feature cost more than double what I paid with free delivery. Spend 25$ and get a roku box instead of 800$ for a smart 4K tv. Blue rays look awesome, video games are amazing, and I can stream with my phone or pad as well as the laptop. Editing my pictures is simple now with such clarity over my previous set.i don't think quality will be an issue either but I bought it with my credit card and paid for a 3 year warranty just because. The price plus options on this tv made this a simple choice and I will enjoy it for many years to come.

But for this Sceptre uhd TV... the picture quality and features are absolutely AMAZING! and for the price!!!! WOW! (bordering on Unbelievable!) I bought the 49" to use as a pc monitor for my music workstation setup....MAN!!! My son is ordering the 55" as one of his 3D monitors as well as his gaming console monitors. The MANCAVE is getting either a 65" or 70" inch real soon! You CANNOT beat the price to value for this TV... 4k!... hdmi 2.0!! 120Hz refresh rate! As I was reading the specs I saw the views counter going up... I have never typed so fast ordering a product... ever!
