Great Value

A very good TV with a bright LED picture, at a very good price. I have not used the DVD player, but that is a bonus.

So far, so great. I love the built in DVD (So I don't have to mess with yet another remote). Great picture too!

Great price, very sharp picture! Average set-up and average remote.

Chad -July 7, 2018
So far so good!

This tv has an impressive look and feel coming out of the box. The display is clear and bright, colors are distinct. The DVD player and remote are user-friendly. My only suggestion would be a less cheesy screensaver on the DVD player - the 1990's-style multi-colored "pong" DVD logo makes the tv feel dated. Small thing, obviously. Overall what remains to be seen i how long this product will last - my last two flat-screens are more than ten years old and counting - that's what I'm hoping for with this one too!

This is super easy to set up and to get it running. The vivid isn't really vivid. But because I wanted a large t.v. with a built in DVD, I accept it's not the best color.

We put this in our camper. Works great. Looks very nice. DVD player very easy to use as well

-May 6, 2018

Has a grt picture & I like that it has a DVD player built in. The sound Quality is not all that grt as is the problem with most flat screens. Was easy to set it up, just plugged my antenna into it. Took me a little while to figure out how to hook my VCR into it, the directions for hook up not that good. Not a bad price either.

Excellent product. Great picture. Always look up the specs at Sceptre.com. This model has a 15000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. That translates to a very rich picture.

Great TV for the Price

Although the manual for this TV mentions that the TV (ATSC) tuner is optional for this model, the TV came with a tuner -- and it works quite well. (I have an attic antenna and can cleanly pick up a TV station about 40 miles away.) And I'm very happy with the picture quality. On the other hand, the new TV's sound is decidedly tinny. (And the software tricks that this and other TVs try to use to compensate just don't work.) The integrated DVD player (not Blu-Ray) loads like a car's CD player, but is a bit awkward to reach. Moreover it's a bit noisy. One of the things I've always admired about Sceptre TVs is that that use Sony's TV remote control codes, which makes using third-party remote controls a breeze. Still, there must be some variations, as my old Sceptre's remote only works partially on the new TV. Likewise for my Fios remote. (Biggest problem is selecting input.) Bottom line: This is a *very* nice TV for the price. Just be aware of its limitations.

-January 14, 2018

Everything. Great color, good sound, and great price. Serves its purpose. I bought it for my grandson to play his Xbox. He lives the size.

-January 13, 2018

I can't think of one negative thing to say about this tv. Beautiful picture, plenty of volume, and the best price I found. I defiantly recommend this tv.

Picture is great, sound is amazing, quality is great. DVD player is a big bonus! In love with this purchase

-January 12, 2018
Great TV with a great price!

Picture is clear, viewing angle is good. I've installed it in the front of my motorhome and it's working well for us. Less then $200 with a built-in dvd player, how can you go wrong! If any of y'all are looking for a deal, this could be it.

-January 10, 2018

Great picture only complaint is that the audio needs assistance.

-December 29, 2017
Very please!

Picture is great! I was a little confused on the inputs for our Wii system but my husband was able to figure it out and then the parental lock for the DVD player access I had to look up online but otherwise extremely pleased! Video games are great, movies are nice. Perfect for what we needed!

-December 28, 2017

I bought this for my husband's man cave. He likes the fact that we no longer have to have an external DVD player when he wants to watch his movies. Perfect size, clear picture and sound. Very happy with this item.

-December 26, 2017

The picture is so good. The sound is fantastic. A GREAT TV. Got it for our 84 yr. old Mom for Christmas she loved it so easy for her to use it.

Great buy, nice TV for not a lot of money.

Clear picture and quite decent sound. The DVD player is a bonus. You cant go wrong with this TV for 200 bucks. WE are replacing a 9 year old LCD that still play well and will be used for streaming. The Sceptre is located in a room that gets lots of sunlight. The contrast on this new LED TV works so much better than the old LCD TV. Can actually make out what' going on in a night scene. Very pleased.

-December 17, 2017
Great tv for the price

The picture is clear and vivid. The sound quality is excellent. The size is great and even better for the price. The legs support the tv sturderly. The DVD is an added bonus and easy to use. Very satifised with my purchase.

Bad start - Good Ending!

Just out of the box and in the process of setting up TV, was not able to receive any channels. Upon contacting the tech support, it was discovered that the antenna tuner plug was defective and needed to be replaced. After that issue was resolved the TV is now working and everything appears to be great!

Crisp clear colorful picture!!

I've had my new TV for a week now and I'm so very happy with my choice. The price was fantastic for such a high quality picture, every hook up in the back that you could imagine you need to run other electronics through your television, and conveniently there is a built-in DVD player you just slide the DVD player right in the side of the TV. Free shipping right to my door and it came earlier than expected which was a great surprise!
