easy to work

It took no time to program the TV the way that I wanted. Great picture and easy to maneuver around in using all of the functions. I admit I was nervous about purchasing this product but it has proved me wrong.

Great value in a 4K UHD set.

Although purchased about three weeks ago, I got it set up only yesterday. Being technically challenged, didn't get the settings right until this evening. I realize that settings can be more complicated and critical in a 4K set, butthought it a bit complicated and lengthy getting the right settings. Otherwise, I love the set.

Great TV

This is my second Sceptre. First one was a 50 in. Great TV also. Sound is not to good but all flat screens are that way. No room for a big booming base speaker so plan on buying a sound bar. Hope to get a lot of years with this big old 55 incher.

Great TV Experience for 4K...

My Papa bought me this TV in replacement for my old one. And to my big surprise it was not I've ever expected so far, it's way beyond my expectation... I was amazed by the finest texture of picture... And it was awesome, delivering from my 1080p source of movies from my hard drive.. Thank's SCEPTRE for making this innovative products brought to life....

Great intro into the 4K market

I purchased this TV at the local Market this past Black Friday as the sales price was too good to pass up for a 55 inch 4K television. I have never owned a Sceptre television and tended to stay with Samsung. I am glad I made the change. For the price the visual quality is simply excellent. I have been running 4K on it through DirectTV's channel 104, Youtube and Netflix. The picture is outstanding. Great color, contrast and detail. A huge step up from my older Samsung 50 inch 720p DLP tv which now resides in one of my son's rooms. Setup was extremely easy (and thank you for the free screw driver). On screen controls are simple and straight forward to use. I tweaked both the picture and sound levels to my liking and did eventually buy a soundbar to augment the TVs own sound. I could not be happier. Even the upscaled 1080p and 720p channels look excellent. Watching NFL games each week has been an experience in and of itself. What color and realism. Two thumbs up for this product!!

Great picture, poor sound

Pretty straightforward setup. Beautiful picture. Could not find a good sound setting that satisfied. Now using an external audio system. Closed caption font size should be larger to make easier to read. Could use one more HDMI input and another audio output. Reasonable price.

easy set up

Talk about plug and play that is all I had to do is plug in the hdmi and power cord and it was done. The picture is great with no pixel loss or spots. I wish this would of been a smart tv but for less than 400.00 this is a great tv. I will make another review as soon as I get my direct tv 4k receiver.
