Amazing for price, but...

I absolutely love it. It’s amazing quality for such a low price. Unfortunately, I accidentally bought two and discovered one of them had a large crack on the screen, so it’s a risk but the one that didn’t have a crack has absolutely nothing wrong with it and I love it.

Sceptre 43 inch TV, great value for money. Would like to give 5 stars but the sound quality is pretty bad. It just sounds metallic no matter what.

Speakers work really well

-August 7, 2018

The TV is a good value and is from an American Co. (better yet, it's from California) Be aware that it is 60 hertz so it is not ideal for gaming or sports.

HIGHLY recommended TV.

I absolutely love all the Spectre TV's I have purchased. They run cool (cold actually) which means they are highly energy efficient. I use my 43 as a PC monitor and the picture is awesome. Highly recommended.

Good tv, great price

My last tv basically had no volume compared to this thing, the sound on this set is overwhelming. It has the word "Sceptre" in the bottom corner that fills with color as you adjust the volume upwards. It's loud enough to hear in the entire house when the "S" is not even full yet. I'm pretty sure my ears would bleed before I got to the first "e" haha. You're not gonna need a sound bar with this one.

The tv has a good picture and I'm happy with my purchase. I connected a Roku stick to it for all the features of a smart tv without the smart tv price. This tv plus the Roku combined were not even half what I paid for the last tv set, but performs better and has all the same functionality.

This is for my wife. She says that it's her baby. The picture is great, the audio is adequate. It is not a smart TV, but that was not what we were looking for.

Good price, Fast shipping.

My husband and I wanted to replace my mother-in-laws TV... the past few televisions we have bought from a pawn shop fairly cheap but we wanted to upgrade her like 23 inch big monstrosity for a flat screen that was much bigger and had better quality. The set-up for this was really easy, took us only a few minutes to set it up and we were even able to hook up the sound system we had gotten for her years ago that wasn't compatible with the tv she was using.

Heck I was able to read the screen even with my glasses off. This is a great tv for the price and the sound quality is really nice. I have not a single thing negative I can say about it.
