Fantastic deal for a 4k monitor

I bought this to replace an old 720p TV I got from my dad. The difference between 720p and 4k on my Xbox one X is remarkable. The colors are much better, and I feel like I can more easily get immersed in a game like RDR2 with this monitor.

Bargain screen

Needed to replace a 12yro dell monitor, so a 27in 4k screen for about $200. It is a gamble that for me paid off. For photography or gaming I would probably get a new main monitor, but to upgrade my writing screen its worth it. The color and brightness is not terrible. If you need

Points to check
No dead pixels
Standoffs for vesa mount - the monitor stand has a protruding nub to lock into - people complain in other comments
Check color

Awesome

I love this TV. It was better than I expected

Sceptre has put the the other manufacturers on notice with these displays.

I purchased two of these at once for less than two hundred dollars each. They both arrived undamaged. They are being driven through an AMD RX580 8GB from MSI. No dead pixels with either display. Viewing angle is very good. These are IPS displays. HDMI 2.0 cables included in the box - a very decent Phillips head screw driver is included in each box as well. Nice, metal stands. Slim bezels (not super slim, but slim. Very, very good brightness. These are only 60Hz - maybe that's an issue for you, it's not for me.

Fallout 4 looks great in 4K. No input lag that I can see - these are decently fast displays.

I have Dell displays at work (two) that are very similar size and specs - they are available here on Amazon for around $300 each. Unless you are extremely picky or require super accurate color reproduction - these are great. Granted, I've only had them on for 3 hours. Will they last? Time will tell.

Right now I can recommend these. They are a STEAL compared to everything else out there right now.

Great bang for your buck!

Had a friend recommend this monitor to me when I was searching for an external monitor to go along with my iMac. I wasn't expecting much with the price tag associated with this product but it continues to exceed all expectations. It does take a lot of fine tuning to get the colors to match between my iMac and this monitor but well worth the trouble. Though I still have yet to get that perfect setting combo, I doubt I ever will. The colors are amazing, the stand is sturdy with a good finish on it so it isn't an eye sore. I still plan to get a desk mount to raise the monitor a to an ergonomic level so I will update once I do mount it. Hopefully there will be no issues on that front. But I would definitely recommend this monitor to others.

-October 28, 2018
Great value

I bought two of these despite some of the complaints of viewing angle and dead pixels. Neither of my displays hand dead pixels, and the viewing angle is decent. I'll be doing some adjustments on the picture settings, but the default isn't too bad.

This is a sub $200 4K UHD monitor. This isn't a $350 LG or HP. I went in assuming that it may not be perfect, and I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a great value.

-October 26, 2018
Great value

I have three of them. Excellent value

-October 12, 2018
Great Product

This display replaced the dual monitor set up I had and the picture is amazing. I do have a couple stuck pixels and also one or two dead pixels on the screen but its only noticeable when I'm searching for them. Overall worth it.

-October 11, 2018
Works well

No issues after running them for 6 months.

-October 9, 2018
Best deal

For the price you simply cannot beat it. I looked around for a month before purchasing this monitor and failed to find a better deal. Amazing picture and very aesthetically pleasing. I would recommend this to anyone, dont be afraid of the off brand name.

It's 4k

The best monitor I’ve bought

-October 3, 2018
Best 4k display for the price

I really don't know what to say that wont sound like I work for the company that makes it. I have read in other reviews that there ae some severe QQ issues, but I did not have any. No dead pixles nothing wrong wit it in any way that I can tell (so far.) It really is a great feeling very thin 4k display that even comes with what look like oversize motherboard mounting screws if you want to use the vesa mounts without taking the base off. And it came with a screwdriver for putting the base on.

-October 2, 2018
Almost perfect

ONE STUCK GREEN PIXEL!!! Trying to ignore it but I cant unsee it. Stand feels weak otherwise great.

-September 26, 2018
Quality and inexpensive

Great for gaming and watching videos in 4k. Haven't had any issues with the monitor and it's a good money saver.

-September 25, 2018
Good for the price

I had no problems with the monitor. I run games at 2k with my gtx 1060. It looks good and has speakers. What i dont like is that the mounting holes are very low and my other monitor are in the middle, making it weird looking.

-September 22, 2018
Great monitor

Its an amazing monitor, very thin so i dont travel with it, every once in awhile I'll get a freaky flicker but other than that it's the best I've ever bought

-September 19, 2018
great monitors for the price

I bought a few of these for a multi-monitor 4k desktop displays in my home office. They're great. But realize that at 4k resolution all the text is going to be really small on a desktop computer, so depends what you're using it for. I've actually set the resolution to 1080p on them just cause on a 27" display I wanted all the text and everything to be larger, but they work great in 4k too.

-September 18, 2018
One thing to consider...

This product is beautiful. One thing to consider with Sceptre the others can't claim is that it is based in California (like Apple). It is American, hence part of its lower price.

-September 13, 2018
Cheapest 4K monitor, very good as main or secondary

I'm using this along with a 144hz 1440p panel. I prefer the 144hz for gaming and most tasks, but having this monitor for photo editing is very nice.

At only $200, it's not much more than most 1440p or even some 1080p/1440hz screens at the same size. The stand is good, but make sure you screw the screws in well or else it will woble. I am using a wall mount. I had to use standoffs and cut out part of it that was blocking the power cable, but after that it works fine. Out of the box it needed some settings tweaked, but now it looks great. The buttons are in the back which makes them hard to use, but when you're setting it up you can move the monitor to a more convenient position so it's fine.

This monitor is definitely worth getting.

Best Value in 4K

I took a chance and purchased this monitor on 9/2/18 despite some other web reviews of dead pixels and lines in the monitor. My monitor arrived in perfect condition, with no dead pixels and excellent color out of the box. The web reviews also clued me in that you need to be aware that the best picture and FPS is obtained with the use of the display-port and an aftermarket 4K/V1.3/1.4 cable. Throw away the cheap factory supplied HDMI cable which is causing problems for many if they do not read directions or reviews. If you plan to wall mount the monitor be aware that you will need to use the included standoff spacers. The power cable may need to be replaced with a right angle monitor power plug to clear some mounting brackets. So pleased with this purchase that barring any problems I plan to order another next month. Thanks Sceptre!!!

Pleasantly surprised

I was a bit skeptical with other reviews experiencing dead pixels and internal dusts. But for the price, I took a chance and ordered 2 of this. I am glad I took the chance. Both monitors arrived in time and I immediately checked for any quality problem. So far I found none, and picture quality is great. There are some dusts, but they are behind the screen protector. Once I removed the screen protector, I was able to just blew the dust off. I highly recommend this monitor for the quality and price.

IF YOU HAVE HORIZONTAL RED LINES

They seem to be caused by the HDMI cable that ships with this monitor. I used the cable that came with the monitor and had a lot of horizontal red lines and black screens that I originally thought was caused by my GPU because I had overclocked it. I swapped over to another HDMI cable, and I haven't seen one red line or black screen since then. Kind of annoying that this wasn't caught in qa but, luckily I had another one laying around. Another thing, this monitor will look like absolute garbage out of the box. There is another review here that has some very good settings for color calibration. This and the bad HDMI cables that seem to still get sent out with these monitors loses a star for me. Other than that though, the stand is nice. Only upwards/downwards tilt but for a 4k monitor that is only $200, not really expecting anything more. Games look good, text looks great. Good monitor for the price.

-September 5, 2018
Best monitor for the price

Great image quality, 4k 60hz can’t ask for more and is IPS? Couldnt believe it till I got hands on.

-September 4, 2018
Decent for the price

Purchased this monitor to go with my newly built PC, It is good quality, and overall good for the price, my only two complaints, and the reason it is not 5 stars, is that for one thing it arrived with a dead pixel, this isnt a big deal (as of right now) so it doesnt really bother me, the other complaint is that on the part where the stand mounts to the monitor the screws are very loose, not enough to cause issues, just enough to make it wobbly. It seems like overall if they went through a bit better quality assurance, they would be great!

Small Price Huge 4K Experience

For such a small price, the 4K experience is almost overwhelming. The monitor is so easy to use and has perfect presets for every need. I had my doubts and really questioned could something cost so cheap and be that good. I am truly amazed at how good this monitor actually is even compared to high priced monitors not as good. Their will be some who will say negative things about this piece of hardware but even the most expensive things can and will mess up. For the money you will not find a better 4K UHD IPS Monitor Anywhere!!!!!!!!! Guaranteed

Great 4K monitor great price

Have been using this monitor for 4 weeks now. Really like it. Easy to set up. My PC's CPU is AMD A10 that has built-in GPU capable of 4K at 30Hz (the monitor is capable of 60Hz), had to upgrade PC memory for 8G to 16G to get smooth 4K video play. Great color and features. I don't use the built-in speakers since I have a pair of much better speakers. The price is about half of any other 27" 4K monitor I could find. It has more input choices than any other I could find.
