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.

Very nice tv. Great picture.

Had a 43" Sceptre upgraded to a 55"UHD. Really great picture. The 4K is better than the 1080. The speakers are a little tinny and I'm having a hard time hooking it to my stereo. Very happy with this purchase.

Great TV/PC Monitor – Setup Ti

This review is for the Sceptre TV Class 4K (2160P) LED TV (U550CV-UMR) I just purchased this TV in November 2017 and cannot speak for long term satisfaction but I am highly satisfied at this point. It works great as a TV and a Computer Monitor. My TV table was just a bit small in length so I turned the legs around so that the long part is in the back and it is still very stable for my situation and the legs do not hang off the sides of the table. To do this I had to quickly snip off 2 little plastic bumps on each side where you screw the legs in. I used a wire cutter type of pliers. (very easy to do) These little bumps are designed to prevent the legs being screwed on backwards but it works perfect for me. Again, These little alignment bumps snip off with ease but the directions do say to put the long part of the leg in front probably to be extra safe to prevent tipping over in the forward direction but it is extremely stable the way I have it but you will have to decide that for yourself. The menu settings are simple. Call Sceptre if you have any questions. I figured out a few settings that I would like to share. Sound Settings: I have a set of computer speakers connected to the 3.5mm stereo output from the TV. I have the settings selected that allow for both the TV speakers and the computer speakers to be active and the volume is controlled by the remote for all speakers when watching TV. Here are the sound settings: Menu/Sound/Other Settings – Set AVL to Off – Digital Audio Output to PCM – Speaker to On – Also set to Surround Sound – Computer Sound: I matched the TV volume to the computer by setting the computer sound volume around 25%. I cannot control the computers volume with the TV remote. I control the computer with the volume slider BY clicking on the speaker icon at the bottom right of the screen or many keyboard also have volume controls. TV Screen Settings: Since I also use the TV as a Computer Monitor, I have cert

Ordered this t.v. a few days ago. After an extra east set up I'm blown away! I set it up side by side with my vizio 55" led and it's by far the better of the two. Sceptre will always be my first choice from now on.

Super Clean TV

I bought this tv on Sunday and had it 2day shipped. Was kinda skeptical with the price being so low. Got it out the box, hooked up and was blown away with the picture quality. However, I will have to get a sound bar because speaker quality is not as good. Still well-worth the money and the 5-star rating. Well played Sceptre!

I researched any TVs before I decided on this one and I'm glad I picked this one. The picture quality is outstanding. The sound is not so good but I bought a Sceptre sound bar to go with it and the combination is truly remarkable.

I really like this TV

I have to say i had big reservations about buying this TV... I saw it on Amazon.. Thought it was a great price. But it had to be poor quality? I am glad i was wrong! This is a great TV, very nice picture with great color.. The sound could be better.. But nothing a Sound Bar won't fix! In fact, when I'm able..I'm ordering a Sceptre Sound Bar next! But anyway..So far so good!! Thank You very much.. Mike.

Great Buy for Price

Replacing a 10 year old HD tv, so finally moving to more advanced technology. The viewing quality is really great from what I had before. Also moved from 45" to 55", so the size of screen, with the much smaller bezel really give a great viewing experience. If I could have afforded a larger TV I would have, but got this one on special at Walmart.com for $307. Could not pass up such a bargain. Big name brands are 2-3 times the price with same/similar features. Whaaaaa! Would have given 5 stars but, speakers could be better, but these days a soundbar or theatre system is better anyway. Hate, hate, hate the blue and red on/off lights just below the screen. Very annoying, but have only had a few days, so will probably get used to it after awhile.

Good BASIC 4K display

You get only what you pay for here. Among the sparse features are 4K display, CEC, HDCP, and... that is pretty much it. The 120Hz feature is emulated. The actual refresh rate is 60Hz. The good thing about purchasing this particular TV is that you aren't paying for "smart-tv" features that could be obsolete long before the TV has reached the end of its utility.

I have never owned a Scepter TV before , so I thought I would try one . I purchased it online from Walmart. Com . It was delivered 2 days early from what they said when it was supposed to be delivered, so that's a plus already . When I installed the TV and turned it on , the picture and color were amazing . The sound was pretty good , with the installation of my soundbar, it made it sound awesome. Considering the price I paid for plus free shipping and comparing it with the top name brand TV s you just can't beat it . One happy customer!!!!!!
