I bought this TV on 11/01/2011. I know the date because I just dug up the receipt so I could order a new Remote Control. I haven't had one problem with this TV. I have a sound bar attached, a CD/DVD player, use two different computers on two different HDMI inputs, and also have ROKU 2 attached, not to mention a cable box. When I bought it, I figured if it lasted a year, I got my money's worth. I wasn't expecting much, especially with a brand name I never heard of. Sceptre.
I'll tell you what. I've had all the latest, the best, THEE brand names. And they don't compare to this. Next time I purchase a TV, you can bet I will get a Sceptre.
It would be nice if they sold their Remote Controls for a little less.Oh Well.
