Sceptre reliable

We have had more than twenty Sceptre LED TVs in use in our business, 14 hours a day, 7 days a week for three and a half years. They are fantastic! We have only lost one to a mop handle. They look great and operate great. We had some $2500 Samsungs that didn't last two years. (Different technology.) What can you say about a product that is significantly better AND significantly cheaper? If you are still printing POP material you are missing a bet. Three posters will pay for a TV. Gene

Nice clear picture

I have had this tv a couple of months. I just love it except for the volume. It seems that the volume does not come up with the numbers on the screen, when you get the volume up to high it seems to warble.

GREAT!!!

Just received this 50" TV and it is great!!! We wanted a larger TV and had been looking but little did we know our old 32" died on us. So Walmart offered a deal and we jumped on it. Had it shipped to our home via Fedex and it arrived in the time told to us and in excellent shape!!!

Perfect upgrade

Wanted to upgrade from a 10 yr old 38" and this was perfect. I'm not a gamer so I just need something to watch TV and movies. Fits the bill to a "t". Easy to set up and installed within minutes. Sync'd with Direct TV easily and the HDMI inputs will be helpful

Great Picture

I have a Spectre 32" that was given to me as a Christmas president almost 6 years ago and have had no problems. The 50" has a beautiful picture but poor "tinny" sound from the speakers otherwise I would have given this set a 5 star rating. Set Up was easy connected to my Cable Co. with HDMI cable, turned on, followed screen directions. I sat back and enjoyed in 5 mins.

Satisfied Customer

I admit I was skeptical about purchasing this TV for several reasons. First I had never heard of this brand, and secondly I could not believe the price. After reading the customer reviews I decided to make the purchase. I purchased a 50 inch TV for $345.00, which seemed to be to good to be true, since I had been comparing costs of 50 inch TVs for a while. I bought this TV to replace a 4 year old 50 inch Samsung which had horizontal lines across the screen that keep getting worst. The Sceptre arrived 2 days after my online purchase. It was so easy to install and I still cannot believe how great this TV is. The picture is excellent. I agree that the sound is not as great as I would like it to be, but it is not terrible. I am very satisfied with this TV, and definitely would recommend this TV to others. What a great TV bargain! I also have a 32 inch Vizio, and the Sceptre picture is as clear as the Vizio.

more then satisfied

I purchased this on Black Friday 2013 so I've had it for well over a year. I was looking for a budget TV that I could use both as a tv and computer monitor, had plenty of HDMI ports for my Roku, game console and bluray player so this met my minimum requirements.

-February 28, 2015
Excellent product. Excellent price.

Fast delivery. Excellent price. Been using the TV for about a month and I'm very impressed. This is the first big item like this I have purchased from Walmart. And I would do it again in a minute.

Bought this TV as a game room television after reading previous reviews. At first I was scared of the inexpensive price, but after hooking it up I think it matches up with all my other Samsung TV's.

Wonderfully Priced w/Great Pic

I was in the market for a larger TV when I came across this one for $399 at Wal-Mart. I was very leery as I'd never heard of Sceptre and was scared it would be a lemon. Needless to say...it's over 6 months later and I'm totally happy with my purchase. I remember turning the TV on for the first time and being so impressed with the quality of the pic...I could see so much detail in the pic. I mean, I could see every imperfection on the faces on the screen. This is a great buy and it's comparable to more well named brands.

Worth Every Penny and More!

Purchased on 9/8/2013 for $388. What a deal! Nearly 6 months later and we love this TV! No delivery or packaging issues. Arrived safe and sound. No issues with the TV sitting level. The picture is awesome.   I did purchase the 3 year warranty, just for added peace of mind. Go ahead and buy this TV, you'll be glad you did!

Fabulous TV for low bucks

I had never owned a Sceptre product before but found the review material online to be very positive.
I decided to give it a try - boy am I happy I did!
It is BETTER than expected in every way! Incredible picture, plenty of inputs, a great remote, fabulous sound from the onboard speakers. I thought I would need a separate soundbar - nope... these speakers do a great job as is... something my expensive Samsung HDTV fails to do. Maybe I got lucky and got a reverse lemon, that is, a miracle unit. But I don't really think so. I think the little companies out there are finally catching up to the big boys - at least Sceptre is!

-January 4, 2014
Highly Recommend

After testing this product for over 30 days, I would highly recommend this to anyone. I purchased a smaller version of the same thing over a year ago. I have not had a bit of trouble with either one! Sceptre's are easy to set up and work just fine.

-December 30, 2013
Much More than I Expected!

This television has exceeded my expectations. It has many features that I am learning about as I use it. I especial love the USB port as I have many family pictures that I can display at family gatherings. And the display is all of that. I'm in LOVE with this set.
Thanx A Lot!

Good TV with Good Price

We ordered this tv online on Sat. after Cyber Monday. The price was great. Free to-home shipping was offered, but we paid $3 more for it to arrive by Wed the following week. It actually arrived a day earlier than expected. Took it out of the box, attached the stand, hooked it up and was working like it should. Picture quality & sound are great even though we don't have HD channels from cable company. Plenty of places to hookup VCR, DVD, video games. Can be used as a computer monitor...lots of things can be plugged in. Love this tv and would highly recommend it to anyone.

I am satisfied with my TV. The picture quality is awesome. It was easy to assemble. I like the swivel feature where I can adjust it to accommodate my viewing choice.

I am Happy I Decided on This One

This tv is a great. I can't tell a difference between the picture quality on this one and on ones that cost hundreds more.

There is a aspect button on the remote so you can surf the internet without loosing the edges of picture. Very convenient!!
