Best TV for a low price

I just bought this TV from walmart.com and found this TV was not only a great price,but even a better picture than my Vizo 42 inch. I would seriously recommend this TV over any other brand and can't wait to see what Sceptre comes with next. I would make sure I am the first person in line to buy my next one.

They Don't Call It a Sceptre for Nothing

Majestic! Using it for a computer monitor. The Image color and clarity rates with my other brand-name sets. It has all the inputs needed. The brushed nickel finish is actually black but looks real nice! The frame is thin, nice swivel base. It's very bright, took a few hours to get use to it - after that it's very comfortable to look at even close range. Lots of ways you can program and configure it. I think the sound is pretty darn good. I have a speaker system attached but my initial testing (1-2 days) without it proved the sound to be equal or better than other units. The remote is kind of cheesy, made of the thinner / softer plastic (easy to crush) but it’s packed full of functionality. I noticed it DID NOT like the Costco brand batteries. I thought I had a bad one, then I tried the batteries that came with it and it worked fine. The sale price at Walmart was 279, if you need an LED 40 inch 1080P HD TV that looks great – you won’t be disappointed.

Great TV for the Price!

I have bought Sceptre products before and enjoyed them very much, which is why I bought this 40' for my bedroom. I would recommend this product to anyone I have tried the 22', 46' and now the 40' - great products for the value.

Best TV Bargain Out There

This is my second 40" Sceptre TV from Walmart. My girlfriend bought me one for the den in her place and I love it. So when we upgraded the TV in her bedroom to my 32" I purchased this TV for my place in the city, Easy set up clear picture. I have it set up through the HDMI in and output on my Yamaha receiver, so i experience great sound as well.
The purchase at Walmart was easy with quick delivery. Bottom line is for $259 you can't do better.

Great Value TV

Before I made a decision to purchase this TV I was leaning towards a Vizio since I already have 32-inch Vizio but the price at the time for the Vizio was outrageous. So I came across the Sceptre and did research on the product and the reveiws was EXCELLENT!!. The picture quality is just as good as my Vizio. I have no compliants.

Great TV for the Price

Item shipped very quickly, It's my second Sceptre. I bought one for the guest room a year ago and couldn't pass up another 40 inch for the price, it's making a great garage TV.

Met Expectations- Fully Satisfied

Fully met expectations with no surprises. All I want is to watch HD TV via cable. Quality & price good. Prompt delivery. Easy to unpack and set up. HDMI connect better than coax, so exceeds expectation on that score.

Great Price, Just What I Expected

The only bad thing i can think of about this purchase was the shipping. It came quick, within two days but since i wasn't there to sign for it i had to go pick it up from Fedex. No big deal though. Great price and TV. I have had my other Sceptre LCD TV for at least 7 years now and still works just fine. Hopefully this one still will too.

Great Value, Pleasant Surprise!

I was hesitant to buy this TV given the low end, lesser brand reputation. I'd been warned that you get what you pay for, poor quality, limited shelf life, etc. But I'm a college student and simply didn't have the money to invest in a high end model. This TV has been a pleasant surprise! Great picture quality, easy to use, sound is decent. HD looks amazing - lots of HDMI ports. The stand it comes with clicks into place, so basically zero assembly required. And it's energy efficient so keeps my electric bill low. I've had my TV for a year now, no issues. I'd buy another Sceptra TV without hesitation
