GREAT picture the sound was a little tiny but is adjusted easily with the remote.The only con for me is the placement of the usb and optical audio ports as they fall directly under the wall mount bracket making them very difficult to connect . I bought this to replace a LG tv I bought a while back the LG was a good tv and this tv compares with it well. All in all I feel as this tv only cost about 1/3 of above mentioned LG tv it is a great buy
This TV has great picture quality OK sound needs sound bar. picks up digital and HD channels with antenna.it has audio red white out,optical audio out, and headphone out.it has roku interface just need a roku stick with: 49.99. Its best to use manual picture set up to tweek the awesome display.its has 3 HDMI ports.if you buy a sceptre sound bar you only need!1 remote for TV/sound bar.give this TV a try you won't be disappointed!
I've only had it for a couple months, but so far it's exceeding my expectations. The box was beat to hell, but everything works great. Great picture, good sound, the audio out has independent volume control which is awesome if you're running surround with a bunch of bass (you can use the TV volume to offset the other speakers). I'll probably buy another one in the near future.
I own 3 Sceptre brand TV's, all have been exceptional. Still learning how to use all of the functions.
Great product for the price! Picture is very good and I read reviews before I bought that sound wasn't very good without a sound bar, but I have a sound system I planned to hook it up to so I wasn't too concerned about it. I was pleasantly surprised that the sound is fine on it's own!
I got this off Walmart with free shipping for less than $400 and it is pretty amazing for what it is. If you're looking for a perfect brand-name TV with 120hz refresh and other smart features, you'll need to spend at least 2x the price. Since I'm connecting this directly from my HTPC or Amazon Fire TV running XBMC, it's perfect and beats the heck out of any built-in smart-TV features. Unless you compare this 60hz to a 120hz (or even 240hz) refresh rate side-by-side coming from a pure source, such as a Blu-Ray disc, you can hardly tell the difference. If, however, your top priority is to watch alot of live action sports such as football, then you might want to think about getting at least an hdtv with a 120hz refresh rate, otherwise, it's just a waste of money for the average viewer.
Ok, just picked this up last night and for how much it will cost, it really cannot be beat. The blacks are deep and colors are vivid. Very simple setup, no bells and whistles, but it gets the job done. Being Roku ready is nice and it can be controlled with the TV remote. There are also controls on the remote for what I assume is a Sceptre sound bar, so that is a plus too. If you think you are going to get the same quality as a $700 top end display, you are going to be disappointed, but if you want a big TV with a great picture without throwing a new car down payment into it, this TV is the way to go.
Bright, clear picture and excellent sound quality
picture is very good....easy too set up......price was right 379. plus tax...a little light on sound ...but i have surround sound....would buy it again ...
Bought this TV based on price and user ratings. I am pleased with it so far. The sound system is good (I was able to get rid of my Vizio auxiliary sound system.) My only complaint is that it took some time and effort to get everything (sound, picture, etc.) adjusted, but I am happy with how it works. A better installation manual would have helped a lot!
This Sceptre television is a quality American product for a reasonable price. If the manufacturers added some additional Smart T.V. features, I believe this product would be even more competitive among the foreign brands. (Personally, I do not find Samsung or Sony's televisions much better than my Sceptre T.V. .) My wife insisted on a Sony or a Samsung, but I convinced her that well-made American products do exsist... and, now, we are likely Sceptre customers for life.
This is my second Sceptre TV 55 in, the first one a 50 in HD TV is still going strong in excellent working condition 3 1/2 years, I`ve tried other top name Brands even the 4K, the picture quality was terrible, Walmart need to sell these Sceptre in Walmart stores.
This is my 2nd Sceptre TV. I had issues with the first one and the English speaking (from California) tech support people replaced it with ease.
I purchased this tv for Christmas. Had never heard of the brand so I read the customer reviews. This tv has a very clear picture, great sound and was a great value. Would recommend it highly.
I ordered this after much research, and am happy with this purchase. I love the 3 hdmi ports and the rca jacks on the back to line into my audio receiver for great sound. Instructions were simple and packaging was intact with TV being well protected. I picked up a day earlier than quoted for site to store...
Great TV performance and features for the price. Purchased 6 for my church education department.
I cannot say enough how happy I am with this tv. Under $400 for 55"...excellent deal. Yes, I will probably buy a sound bar, but from what I hear...most people with flat screens end up getting sound bars. I bought it online and it was shipped for free....couldn't get easier.
Excellent quality and features. Our third Spectre unit. Very pleased.
I was a little skeptical buying this sight unseen, but I went by all of the great user reviews. This TV was a nice surprise. Right out of the box it was simple to set up and turned on with no problems. The picture is very good especially for a TV priced under $400. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the sound. Don't get me wrong it is crisp and clear, but I like a little more bass so I will probably add on a sound bar to it. Walmart also has a Sceptre sound bar on sale for around $50 which has very good reviews as well. All things considered, I would recommend this particular unit and would buy another one myself if the occasion arises.
First of, Walmart online buying process and pick up at the local store is amazingly easy and convenience. Watch out for the special price changing quickly, you can get the lowest price for this same TV on the right day. I've bought this one to replace my 8 year old 40" Sceptre 720p. The 55" is huge but if it makes 60" or 65" I would buy it too. The pictures is sharpe and the color is vivid. The sound is good, but I connected to my sound bar, so it's not so relevant. The old sceptre has better bass than this new one...
This TV is always 399.99 on Black Friday so, I was planning on buying it. I kept watching the first part of November and They had it for 379.99 on November 6th, so I jumped on it. This is a great TV. It has true surround sound and the picture is really very good. You can hook up a sound bar, but I think it sounds great the way it is. I hooked up my Matricom Q-box and have great movies and TV shows and sports for free. I would highly recommend everyone to buy this TV. It is a great product at a great price. Thank you Walmart!!!!!
I just got my sceptre 55" tv and im in love with it they just keep making them better this is my 3rd tv from them and never had any problem..i actualy returned the vizio smart tv to get this one i fully recomend it
This is my second Sceptre tv and I am truly pleased with the viewing service I've received. For the price, you can't beat the quality! I will buy this product again when the time arises!
This is a great tv! Beautiful clear picture. I'm so glad I found it. Looked at $1600 tv's and they don't hold a candle to this $400 one.
Love this tv. It's way over built compared to the Vizio I first got, and brought back. Even the base is made of heavy duty tempered glass that is very heavy. Therefore this tv is not tipping over any time soon. Picture is great. Sound is plenty loud. Just love it. All my friends are jealous.
This TV surpassed our expecation for the picture - it is awesome! The sound system was good but we had a great surround sound system that used on our previous TV and hooked that up. Great value!
I was looking for a TV just for my bedroom and did not want to pay too much for it. I found the Sceptre to fit my budget as well as meet my needs for entertainment. I use this TV with my ROKU and it displays a beautiful picture. A simple TV with great value!
Absolutely love it!! Love the size, it fits perfectly on the stand, ordered a wall mount, just in case we'd need to mount it on the wall. But we didn't so we returned the wall mount. Got a great deal for the money! Son had researched the flat screens and found for the money, this was the best deal!
The tv has a wonderful picture and is made well. It wasn't too difficult figuring out the set up although I think it was more by accident since I am hooked to a satelite network. My only regret is that i didn't buy the 60" instead of the 55". You won't be disappointed!
The main reason I chose this brand is I've sold their monitors sine 1992 and bought three of their TV's and am very satisfied with the products. Very low failure rate , almost 0% over these years and the prices can't be beat. I highly recommend them to all.
Just as previous reviews state, I was very impressed with the picture quality. The TV itself is easy to set up and easy to carry. Happy with the purchase.
this is a great tv for the price, the remote and menu options are a little generic compared to my vizio but great for someone like me who doesnt watch that much tv anyways, bring on football season!!!!
Good quality and size excellent price
I looked up the ratings on this particular TV and was impressed and then my son told me he bought the same TV....just a coincidence for sure! We were watching a 'really old 15 inch TV, long before HD!! LOL I love this new TV....great picture, great color and it is big enough to see from across the room! LOL
Worth every bit of $400! Not the best picture I've ever seen but still very good! You can't go wrong for the price. The best deal dollar for dollar out there. Very nice looking set also.
Only had the tv for a couple weeks, but so far, so good. Very pleased with the quality of the picture, sound, and features.
TV arrived in pristine condition, went right up on the wall and has been working great so far. I'm satisfied with the resolution. 55 inch for 399? What's not to like about that?
Worked fine right out of the box. I chose this brand because I bought a smaller Sceptre a couple of years ago and it has been trouble free.
Everything is working fine for now with no complaints at all. Love this tv.
Granted, I am not a gamer and have never had a TV this big before, but it arrived fast, well packaged and I can't imagine a better quality TV for the price. Sound is perfect, picture is perfect. I've had it for over a month now, I use it with a Roku box and I really love this TV. Why would anyone pay more when you can get this TV for less and have perfect quality? SO glad I sprung for it. Su
I had a 50 inch Samsung smart tv and gave that to my son and purchased this set and couldn't be happier. The picture and sound is better than what I had. Don't get me wrong I liked my Samsung also but this is a better set for me. The price is what blows me away. $486.00 with tax for a 55 inch hd set is unreal. You can't go wrong.
I have bought Sceptre in the past and have always been very satisfied with their products. I bought a Sceptre 42" LCD from Costco about 8 years ago and it still has a great picture, wonderful sound and lots of extras PIP, loads of input/output ports etc. This Roku Ready Sceptre TV was ordered online and received about 5 days later directly from Sceptre HQ in S. California. It was packed very well and arrived in perfect condition. It was very easy to set up with the beautiful tempered and beveled glass base that came with it. It can also be easily hung on the wall with the correct bracket. This TV has a gorgeous picture but does lack a bit in the sound area. Sound is just "ok" and that's the only reason why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. I will be purchasing a Sceptre Sound bar to add to it....conveniently it can be controlled with the included Sceptre TV remote.
I've had this tv for about a week and I have no complaints. For the price it's great. The sound is great..the picture is not the clearest I've seen but it's good enough for me.
This is a awsome buy better than I expected very clear picture, with excellent sound, I am very happy highly recomend this TV.
I wish someone or somebody would have told me about this T.V. ? This T.V. is GREAT ? I love it and I would recommend this T.V. to all of my friends and family ,and to anybody that would listen to me ? I just can't keep my eyes off of this T.V. ! So I advise anybody to get this T.V. ? I can't believe how great this T.V. is ? While I have to go now , but like I said , I advise anyone an everybody to buy T.V. ? LOVELY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow! What a value for under $400. I've had a Sceptre 40" TV for about 3 years and never had a problem with. It is now in the bedroom. I was looking at the 50" Sceptre for Christmas but then I saw the 55" for $50 more and went with it. I am very happy with this purchase. My neighbor cannot get over the picture whenever he comes over for a ballgame! The sound is not great (like most flat screen TVs) so we added a sound bar. I would definitely recommend this TV and this brand to anyone looking for a great TV for not a lot of money.
Great picture and I shopped everywhere it's the best price
This is the best deal ever. I almost brought it back because I forgot to set it to the HDMI setting, I had it on TV. After I set it to HDMI it was like WOW what a beautiful picture, the color and clarity is great. For the price you can't beat it. I would definitely recommend this TV. Better than my sons 1100.00 one he bought which was a Sony.
TV worked great,but, after doing the channel search, it would not find digital channels. Come to find out from Sceptre tech support, this specific model does not have a built in QAM tuner, meaning one cannot simply connect the coax, one has to purchase an external HD tuner or rent one from cable provider.
I've been a diehard CRT television owner and am happy I put off buying a flat screen all these years. But I accidentally ordered a Roku 3 instead of Roku 2, and rather than return it decided to give this affordable TV a try. As I worried, the regular analog cable TV looks far worse on HD (not specifically a Sceptre issue). But the HD picture from Roku feed, wireless Netflix, etc. is awesome, superior to my parents "smart TV" at less than half the cost. If you have a way to get internet without ordering a cable television package, this is a fantastic way to cut the cable bill. The Sceptre sound outlets are on the left side of the TV, but the Scepter sound bar plugs are on the right side of the sound bar. That's messed up, find a sound bar with plugs on the same side as the TV. And if you are just watching analog signal, stay away from all LCD/LED televisions period.
After a lot of research and going back and forth, I decided to buy this tv for a Christmas present. I'm so happy with this purchase. If you compare the specs of this tv to the more expensive brands they are almost the same. We bought a sound bar, but it's not really needed. Except to watch hockey! If your on the fence, like I was. Buy it! You won't be sorry
for the price I paid $ 399.00 is unqualified, great sound system, colors,who does not want to spend a thousand, I recommend Sceptre E555BV-FMQR 55" 1080p 60Hz Class LED HDTV certainly would be better if they have build 120Hz but there is nothing to complain if I have to pay only $ 399.00
I was very skeptical to purchase a 55 inch TV for $399. When we got it home and hooked it up.....OMG!!!!! The picture and the sound are just as good if not better than a Samsung! DEFINITELY would recommend this TV to anyone!
I just purchased this Sceptre 55' tv from walmart on line. It was shipped to the store in less than 4 days. The brightness of the screen shocked me, so beautiful! The price was outstanding. Not a smart tv, but it became a smart tv by easily connecting my xbox 360 to it for free! All the apps including internet can be connected by game system, just connect to your wifi-cable which is easy to do. Also I connected my computer to tv with VGA cord, and what i see on my computer comes on the screen, so much fun! I had to connect my computer to speakers because the computer becomes the master and the tv is the monitor, but no problem. So now i have a smart tv!! At little over $400!! , I see Utube, HULU, HBO go, and all the apps, through game system. The picture is outstanding! The best buy I ever made.
I got this TV a few weeks ago, and it has been worth every penny. The picture is great, plenty of connections for whatever you might need to connect, and the menu is very easy to sift through with a few good auto-power off options. Keep in mind this does not come with any M6 screws for mounting on a wall. The top two screws are the typical size you would get with your wall mount packaging, but the bottom two are much deeper. You'll have to make a special trip to a home improvement store to get what you need. If you plan on using the stand, then this point is moot and you'll be set.
Well packaged with extra cardboard and straps around the outside of the TV box to prevent shipping damage. Picture quality is excellent. I recommend switching the DYNAMIC CONTRAST option ON for better picture quality during low-light conditions. I took away a star because of the sound. It can get VERY LOUD so no problem there, but the quality of the sound could be better when compared to other TV's in this size class. Not complaining too much about the sound though as this TV costs significantly less than the competition. An overall excellent TV with lots of video/audio input options, and sound output options. I feel this has slightly higher quality than their 50 inch model.
Watching basketball on ESPN through Dish Network HD is great on this TV. This is a great buy for a large HDTV.
FIRST: DIRECTV REMOTE CONTROL CODE. (not what directv dvr will tell you) On your directv remote 1. Switch the top slider on the directv remote contron ... to "TV" 2. Press and hold "select" and "mute" for 3 seconds, until it flashes 3. ENTER THE CODE FOR THIS TV THE CODE IS ....... 110000 4. Press and hold "select" and "mute" for 3 seconds, until it flashes (A SECOND TIME) 5. Enter the three digit number ...... 980 6. DONE, Slide the top device lever back to Directv and this tv's sound will work for the direcrtv remote. ============================== THE TV REVIEW: ALL BASED ON THE $399 PRICE FOR A 55" HDTV (so don't think you will get the same as a $1,500 and up 55" tv) It does not have a great picture, nor a bad. It is good, but the $399 price makes the value and quality excellent.
The picture has vivid colors and a very clear picture from all angles. It was easy to set up. You can't beat this for the price. I can't say how other features work other than the basic TV which is what I purchased it for. The only weakness is that the sound quality could be better. The sound is acceptable but I may add an external speaker to improve it.
Just set up in livingroom. Seems to be good so far. Nice sized tv for the price. Did buy extended warranty since it was a no name tv. Did have a break in box when picked up and was scared to see what the damage was. Have not noticed anything but has only been set up for less than 24 hours.
Got this tv on sale for $399.00. Really nice tv for the price. Great picture and sound.
