Best Buy for Quality and Size

Chose Sceptre after investigating all brands in this TV range. Sceptre was by far the least expensive, and only one that has a Roku port.

Great TV, Excellent Price!

I bought this over a year and a half ago and I haven't had any issues. I am amazed I got this 50" tv for less than $400. The fact I have had no issues and use it daily, I have gotten more than my money's worth. If I only had the money I would get a 50"+ UltraHD TV from Spectre rrather than the big name brand manufacturers.

The Perfect TV

I bought this TV back in December of 2012, when it was on sell for $399. Everything has been perfect so far with the TV and I haven't had a single problem. I would recommend this TV to anyone that is looking for one.

-April 17, 2014
Over a year and still going strong!

We had no trouble setting this tv up. If you follow the instructions, and screw the stand onto the bottom of the tv- it will never fall off. Picture is good, sound is slightly weak- but I've noticed that to be more the norm with flat screens. Well worth every penny!

You'd Better Believe It

For those of you who are somewhat skeptical about this TV, as the brand name is not as well known as others, Scepter is on the up and up! Do a picture comparison on other higher priced models and you'll be amazed at what little difference there is, except the cost$$$$$$
Reliability? I have owned other name brand models that have not exactly always been "trouble free". I don't expect problems with this TV, but if I do, the Sceptre warranty is just as solid as any other company warranty.
Complaints about the sound??? Of course! I have yet to hear a flat screen audio system that you would brag about! A pair of computer speakers solves the problem for this or any other flat screen.
Bottom line.......An excellent value!

Customer Service is GREAT

Purchased a Sceptre TV 6 months ago. We did have a failure, a complete failure, here is why I gave a 5 star rating. I contacted Sceptre and because the TV is 40 inches or larger they sent a repair man from our area, (we live rural minnesota) came from 70 miles away. Sceptre contacted us every step of the way, as did the repair company. The customer service is GREAT. The TV works perfectly, we have a Bose radio we run the sound with, the stand mounted just fine, no other problems. In todays world you may have problems, it is how they are resolved. THANK YOU SCEPTRE!!!

Great TV

All the features I wanted and has been a great TV, caught it at a good price too no problems for almost a year now

-July 1, 2013

Everyone told me that this was a great buy... YES IT IS, I have been able to see the skin texture on peoples faces.

OK, only problem is the sound: Heres the answer: Ready: go to menu, hit sound, then trusurround hd

The sound is turned to NORMAL AWESOME sound.

Great buy, do not reconsider your thoughts!

This is a real deal!

Amazon brings the world to each and every buyers table. and you must understand, out of every product, you get to see every one.

fantastic value!

Got this to replace a 32 inch CRT. No complaints whatsoever. I do, however, wish the audio output had a variable option so I could pipe it into the stereo with the stereo volume set and just use the TV remote. Because the TV audio output is fixed, I cannot control the volume remotely when playing through the stereo. I don't want a new receiver at this time. Other than that, its a great TV and a great value. I got mine for four hundred eighty delivered. That's a great value.

Great Bargain

Love this TV. The price was awesome...

More Performance for your Dollar

I was lucky enough to purchase this model at an extreme savings. After receiving and setting it up I couldn't believe the sound and picture qualityand I certainly would have paid the full price for this item.

-December 21, 2012

Price was great. I loved everything about this TV. I was a little worried because it was so cheap but I am glad I decided to get it

-December 1, 2012
Simply, WOW

I bought this tv not expecting anything great considering it is an off brand, which lacked some of the features name bran tv's have, but was I wrong! This LCD HDTV is literally amazing, it is hard to tell the difference between my roommates 42 in Vizio. It has a nice crystal clear picture when connected to HD and the stereo is really not that bad. THe colors are amazing and very vivid and the TV itself is very slim and soo light, compared to other flatscreens. This has been a great purchase on cyber monday, Very excited on this new purchase and I definitely would recommend this tv to anybody who wants a cheap and very large tv, this tv will not dissappoint you.

Beautiful TV at a Great Price

Received the tv quickly. It is feature packed and beautiful. Slim bezel, great picture. I have it hooked up to a surround sound system (also purchased on Tigerdirect) and it is great. I have my PC hooked up through the VGA port and it looks gorgeous. It is at the higehest resolution and is great. It is also very low power consumption which is a plus
