Excellent TV

I bought this TV on 11/01/2011. I know the date because I just dug up the receipt so I could order a new Remote Control. I haven't had one problem with this TV. I have a sound bar attached, a CD/DVD player, use two different computers on two different HDMI inputs, and also have ROKU 2 attached, not to mention a cable box. When I bought it, I figured if it lasted a year, I got my money's worth. I wasn't expecting much, especially with a brand name I never heard of. Sceptre. I'll tell you what. I've had all the latest, the best, THEE brand names. And they don't compare to this. Next time I purchase a TV, you can bet I will get a Sceptre. It would be nice if they sold their Remote Controls for a little less.Oh Well.

Great TV!!!

I've had this TV for almost 4 years and it's been reliable as a brick. The sound is a little tinny sounding but not too bad. The picture is great. I've been very satisfied and for what I paid, it's a true bargain.

Beautiful TV all around

My husband helped in the final decision of which TV I should purchase. He did a lot of reading and checking the reviews of other people that had already bought this TV. It has an awesome picture. It works well with our Century Link Prism service. It is a real pleasure watching this TV on a daily basis.
