Love it

Best purchase I ever made !!!

-August 2, 2013
Great Deal

Picture is nice and the sound is good. I got it for under $300 shipped with the sale price and a $90 rebate. Still have not found a better deal for anything like it.

-July 29, 2013
Works Great!

It arrived in a timely manner, was not damaged, and was easy to set up. It has worked great ever since. I have had it about six months now, and have no complaints about the picture, or sound, or anything else. I hooked up a ROKU 3 unit, and get great streaming images from the combination of box and TV. This HDTV has enough connectors, of various types, to let me hook up my DVD/VCR unit, my Blu-Ray Player, my Bose Solo, my computer, my video game console, and more.

Great TV & Value

Excellent sharp picture. The sound quality is good. Great value. I would buy another one.

-April 7, 2013

If you are looking for an inexpensive TV with a great picture, this can't be beat.  I paid under $300 delivered for my kids bedroom, I couldn't be happier.

-February 3, 2013
Overall It is a Good TV

This is our second Sceptre TV and we are still satisfied.

-December 27, 2012

I am very satisfied with this TV. It has a great picture and everything works like it is supposed too. If you want want more sound, hook up a surround sound system to the TV. It was shipped very fast. I would recommend this TV to my friends.

Nice TV. Alot of TV for the money!

Good, clear, quality picture...can easily go up against Vizio, Sony, LG.
Plenty of nice options
Attractive frame and base
GREAT price
Sceptre is a leader and innovator in HD LCD pc monitors, its a trust-worthy brand.

60Hz, it works hard, but you can tell theres just a tad bit of "bleh" in the frame rate clarity.
It has auto volume set on from the factory, its annoying and i suggest you turn it off in the sound settings, its named AVL.

Great TV, Newegg is Awesome...

Pros: The image is absolutely stunning; this is true 1080p HD and such a big screen for such a ridiculous price; Newegg just got robbed ;]

Cons: Not really a con, but the tv came in a box that was beat to ****; I previously purchased a Sceptre Tv from newegg that was smaller and when UPS delivered it, I had to RMA because they broke the TV when it was dropped. This box came completely torn up and with a giant hole on the side of the box; I was afraid to open and see if it was broken, but luckily it came out fine.

-May 27, 2012
Excellent as a Monitor

Definitely one of the best deals on a 42'' LCD. I've been using Sceptre since 2008 and I've yet to see one of their LCD monitors go bad. I've been using a 24'' for the past few years, but I decided it was time for an upgrade, and couldn't be happier.

-March 23, 2012
Great TV and Great Price

Clear picture and sound, easy to set up and operate, good hookup abilities, great price.  Thanks Newegg for the best pricing on many items I've bought.  Fast shipping!

Sceptre TV

This TV for the price cannot be beat. Straight out of the box was a breeze to setup. First time owning this Brand. The picture quaility is very sharp even without HD signal. But once you have HD it is on par with other brands such as Toshiba and Samsung. I bought the 2 year warranty just in case because of not knowing the history of this brand. But so far very good quaility. Very pleased! . The sound on this unit is very good for an LCD TV. Most speakers are not. But the flow of sound from the back is very nice!

-February 19, 2012

Amazing clarity of picture. Sound is crisp. Swivel stand is a nice touch.
