Great TV!

Pros: I purchased this TV specifically for price point and ports on the back. I like analog audio output, so that I can output sound to a stereo, and I also like the VGA input from a computer. This has both and work very well.

Cons: none!

Love it!

I love this TV! Got it for christmas and it's been fantastic. Screen looks great and it performs just as well as a samsung or sony tv. One problem that you'll never have is that this tv is loud. I never have to put the volume over 15. EVER.

great for the money

I am very pleased with the quality of this product. It delivers a beautiful picture and adequate sound, but the channel tuning is limited with cable. It seems like you can only tune to the channels that cable offers. My DVD recorder is old and links through a channel on the TV. My set will not open the channel because my cable provider doesn't offer that channel.

Unbeatable picture for price

You cannot beat the picture quality and clarity for the price of this television. It performs as well, if not better, than tv's that cost $100-$200 more. Best value around, best entertainment investment I've made. Only setback is the volume is a bit low because the speakers are on the back and I have it in a corner. I'd recommend maybe a speaker bar or such down the road.

Excellent tv!!!!!

I am mainly an old school type of person. I had a Sony 32" tv from four years ago that wasn't useful for wide screen shows---in fact the picture would end up so small it wasn't worth watching! Decided to step up to a 40"inch-mainly due to the space problem, but didn't want to put out a lot of money. Well, this tv has surprised me from the beginning! The picture quality and sound are quite exceptional! The ability to get rid of the black at top and bottom are a true plus! Really, really happy with this! Walmart out did themselves with the fast free shipping and really nice price! Thank you.

I purchased this TV about 7 months ago and have liked the performance right from the get-go. The tuner, picture quality and ease of connection and the options for connection make this one of the, if not the best TV that I have ever purchased.

Great TV for a Decent Price

I have a small apartment and this is a perfect size for the space. I have not upgraded my sound system because I just don't feel that it is worth it. Perhaps that also has to do with the space.

-April 25, 2014
Good Price

We bought this to upgrade for my mother from 32 inch to 40 inch. Good picture, really fast delivery. So far, so good!

-April 9, 2014
Nice TV , unbeatable price

Pros: This Scepter is a very nice TV. Detailed 1080p picture with nice colors. Speakers are surprisingly loud with no rattle, much better than what was installed on their 32" tv. Enough input for a regular set-up.

The perfect match for a 1080p console.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If this unit is as tough as their 32" television is, it's an excellent deal.

-March 21, 2014
Great Deal/Decent TV

Pros: Easy to use, connects to my computer without an issue, decent picture/definition/color.

Cons: Wide frame

Other Thoughts: For $290 this thing is s steal.

-March 11, 2014
Really good value

Pros: This was really excellent value for the money. Quality of picture was quite good, bright, clear. Dark darks and bright whites.

Cons: Pedestrian sound. This is normal for this category of TVs.

Other Thoughts: This is not a smart TV. No network connections of any kind.

-February 23, 2014
Good

Pros: The TV is very inexpensive for what you get; 1080p. 60hz, and a true crisp black screen. 

I used the TV as a monitor for awhile, gaming and so on, and never had any issues with input lag. It's 8ms but that's really no big deal with games like EVE Online. Text was clear and fluid. Real color. 

Durable. My cat likes to ram himself up on the desk and slam into things, and one time, hit the TV. No dead pixels fortunately.

Cons: The ugly border. It's thick, ugly, and too shiny. 
The stand has a slight tilt to the side and needs adjustment occasionally. Back light sometimes noticeable. 

The box it came in had a huge hole in the side, the back facing outwards. Not sure where that came from but that's ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it feels best in a guest bedroom with occasional use. Dependable. Giving it to my dad and getting a 4k

What's great about it: Good price, picture, sound

I like this TV. The picture is good, and the sound is pretty good too. You have several options (so that other reviewer could have removed black along top of screen), and you can set up the TV to your personal likes. Some may want to use speakers or a sound bar, but for me, I don't need that. I have had lots of compliments on it, and people are shocked that I only paid $250 for it. My daughter set it up for me easy peasy. I love the TV.

Best LCD HDTV EVER - Lead to Fantastical Journey!!

I got the new TV for my son, to replace a much older LCD TV. The screen resolution was ultra clear! I decided to play some music videos to test audio and visual capabilities. the picture was like looking through a window...

-December 5, 2013
Fantastic

I started out looking for a monitor to replace a failing analog. after careful consideration of size, LED vs LCD, price breaks, I ordered the 40'' Sceptre LCD. when I use this as a TV, it works well with an old antenna, (yes, Free TV signals), bring the audio to a receiver for enhanced sound, or as a 40'' computer monitor. hope you are as satisfied as I have been with this product.

-December 3, 2013
Amazing Color

The brightness and color are amazing! True 1080i and lots of HDMI ports.  Sound is a little hollow but for the price just buy a set of speakers! Great purchase I will buy another one!

-November 30, 2013
Really good value

excellent value, and very clear tv picture. fro the reviews I read it said the sound was below par . However the sound of mine is above age.I also like the fact there are 3 HDMI ports instead of only 2 as so many other TV's.Another wonderful feature is the stand is a swivel stand for viewing at any angel in room. Low power consumption is another nice thing about this tv. Due to this TV I am no longer afraid to try out appliances with unknown names. I did however research this Tv on the internet and saw this company was a computer co. now getting into the TV production. I think this New egg co . is going to be seeing a lot of me for tech products.
