I have only used it for less than a week, but it works perfect. It even survived a bumpy 2 day ride in a uhaul trailer! The remote (comes with batteries) and tv have lots of useful features (roku controls, sound bar controls, program guide, favorite channel, etc) the picture is excellent and the sound is good for my purposes. I will soon connect an android box to make it the ultimate smart tv. At $279 for a 4k tv, i'is s a great deal.


Two Year Review

I've had this TV for two years now. Bought it Dec 2015. I have this setup in my bedroom, which gets more use than any other TVs in my house. The picture is great, once I've had it set to my liking. (Brightness@45; Contrast@100; Backlight@100; and the rest at the default 50). The speakers on this are horrendous. So I bought a soundbar (LG 100watts) to fix that. I bought my parents a Sceptre 50" (X505BV-FSR). The speakers on that unit were surprisingly great. I've bought 3 Sceptre TVs from Walmart and all have been great and still working. The oldest one is 5 years old now.


Sceptre 50 inch tv

clear true picture and sound.

Before purchasing this TV I did alot of research and read alot of reviews. First off I opted not to get a smart TV because I have a PlayStation so that does what I need. Alot of reviews said that the remote and cabinet were really cheap. This is true somewhat but big deal once you see the picture. Alot of the reviews said you really have to mess with the picture settings to get it good. This is true but once you get it...... beautiful picture!!! I had the TV a month now and we are enjoying it very much. Works great with the PlayStation! Great job!!!!! Bought it through Walmart and had it shipped there for $318.

Smart Sceptre 4K TV

This TV is OUTSTANDING and for the cost you can not find ANY thing cheaper! Thank you

Great Value at Walmart!

The 2nd day out of the box. Very light and easy to setup. Great value for the TV. There is no bass from TV speakers so its good to buy a sound bar.

Great tv at a great price.

This tv is amazing! It has a clear picture. Some movies you can see dust partical details it is so clear. Sound quality is good but I connected my sound bar theater system to it to get a better experience. Colors are phenomenal and for the price I can't go wrong. Definitely a good buy.


Great Price

I am very pleased with my new Sceptre tv. It has a beautiful picture and the color is awesome. It took me 5 mins. to hook it up, plus it has 4 ports making it convenient to hook up tv, firestick, dvd player and an extra port left over. It's not a smart tv, but I was just looking for a tv with a good picture and the right price.


Sceptre tv

Picture is great. Great TV for the price

Great Picture

I bought this tv a week ago. I wanted a tv without all the bells and whistles, not a smart tv. I am so pleased with my 49" Sceptre. It has the 4K Ultra HD 2160p and what a great picture. The colors are so vivid. It took me five mins. to hook it up. I have a 25" Sceptre monitor for my computer that is so clear.also. I am deffinately a satisfied customer.

Wonderful Deal

No complaints at all about my Sceptre 49" LED HDTV. Great picture, price, clarity and sound. Picture in picture


great budget 4k tv

This tv is a very fine 4k tv for the cheap price. It was easy to set up and easy to install the legs. The sound is tinny but a sound bar will fix that easy. I also loved the fact that right out of the box I did not have to calibrate the picture to make it beautiful. I put it on vivid mode and just turned the sharpness to 0 and reduced the brightness from middle setting to minus 5%. I watched some Blu-ray movies to test out the picture and was amazed. I used the blu ray disc called "speed racer" to test out the picture and also watched the Warcraft movie. Even though the tv does not have HDR my blu rays looked like 2k quality. One thing to note about the settings is that I left the picture settings on vivid and a couple of days decided to fine tune vivid and turn down the brightness. I did this several times turning the brightness down and back to normal and when I finally settled on brightness minus 5% the tv decided to remember the setting I made in vivid mode and transferred those settings to user mode. When I go back to vivid mode the settings are reset to factory settings, but my changed vivid settings are now locked in my user mode. I only use the tv to watch blu ray movies and use the smart features of my blu ray player to watch you tube high def videos. This tv is so nice that in may I will be buying another scepter 4k to place on an empty wall I have with no tv. "Every wall has to have a tv". I have 5 already. Buy this tv and you will not be disappointed. Walmart also gave me free 2 day shipping. Thank you sceptre for a great 4k tv.


Sceptre U505CV-U 49"

What a great purchase. Very happy with it. Plus the convenience of having free shipping is wonderful.


4.5 stars

This TV is unbeatable for it's price. My only real negative is the screen is shiny rather than matte so there is a bit of a glare issue so some thought into placement may be needed. you have the ability to use the Sceptre TV remote on a lot of the devices plugged into HDMI (PS4, Blu-ray player)and either powers them up when choosing input or going to proper input when device is powered up.


love it, but her husband who had to crawl...

This was a Christmas gift for my daughter. She was surprised it was 49" since she asked for a 32"... love it, but her husband who had to crawl under the house to run the cable wasn't as happy... success all the way around.


Sceptre 49" tv

TV was everything represented. I am very satisfied. Vey easy to assemble and connect.


Bought 2 on Dec 21 2016 it's Jan 3rd ones broke

My kids love the tvs. Picture is great great price. Perfect size but one of the 2 is going back already because the sound stopped working. Walmart.Com customer service line has been wonderful and has handled everything for me. Thank you

What a TV

I needed another flat screen and found this 4K at Walmart‘s. Turns out to be one of the best TV‘s we own. Great picture but you need a sound bar or AMP for the audio. This 4K is still a 5 star product.

Excellent value

I picked this TV up for $ 320 on sale and while I had my doubts at first, it really is a great TV for little money. The cabinet and finishes are ultra modern and it is the latest version. Thin bezel is nice and metal feet offer good stability. Picture quality compares to others costing a lot more money. As with most low end TV's, their speakers are weak. this is the one trade off. With the money I am saving, I am buying a sound bar which blows away even the best built-in speakers. Closest comparison to this model was about $ 120 more. I would recommend this TV to anyone who wants a big screen without costing big bucks.


Fine product, easy to set up.

The box said "needs two to lift", but it really only needs two hands; it's quite light. Well packed and easy to install. We bought this to replace the 43" model, which was repurposed as a very high quality computer monitor.


Best bang for your buck

Perfect for the price. The kids love it with their new gaming system
