I just bought this TV. Love it

Great TV!!!!

Very satisfied with the picture, sound, and price of this TV. After researching many TV‘s I am glad that I chose this one.
Sona 2017-10-06

Great Flat screen LED TV

The size, sound and picture is very nice! I bought this for half of the original price. I would highly recommend you purchase one before the sell is over! Easy to use and set up.
CO Dave 2017-09-18

Great value at great price

I bought this through Walmart sight unseen TV because of the great price. I figured I‘d take the risk with an unknown manufacturer. The TV works great and has a good picture. I am not disappointed in my choice.

great tv good price

clear screen fast ship reccommend



great, well worth the money


sceptre tv

Beautiful pic nice sound would buy again great price value.



TV is great. Assembly of the base is nearly impossible


Heck of a TV for 200 bucks

I received this Sceptre 40" 1080P in less than 2 days and set it up quickly. I have spent a lot more money on tvs in the past and can say this is an excellent value for the money. I will see how long it lasts and leave another review in a year or two.


Perfect buy for what we needed!

We needed a 40"+ TV for our bedroom and started with a Samsung Smart TV. The speed was horrible with our Roku, and the picture/sound quality was highly disappointing. We took that TV back and landed on the Sceptre. The speed is incredible, picture and sound quality very high, and the rotating base allows us to angle the screen based on our room location. Packaging arrived in perfect condition as well and instillation was a breeze. Overall, a great buy! We highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a standard tv!

Awesome features and Picture!!

I love this TV, it has all the connectivity I needed!! The picture is fabulous as well.

Perfect with no problems

Out of the box this TV works perfectly. No adhesive on the screen. Picture and sound are very good. No dead Pixels. The TV has 3 HDMI connections. For less than $200 it is an amazing value. I would buy again.


Great TV at a Low Price

Bought it for the bedroom. It has a clear, sharp picture, lots of jacks for hooking up stuff. Sound is OK but all flat-screens now a days are lacking so I already had a soundbar from the last one. Great buy!


Great TV, only one bad issue.

I got this for a little over 200 bucks. It has a terrific picture. I view Netflix and Hulu on it, as I dumped cable for a streaming only tv preference. (saving money!). I have had this tv a year and haven't had a single problem with it. The only issue is the very poor quality, back-facing speakers. Heck, even if the dishwasher is running, you have to crank the volume to 90 just to hear speech from actors, etc. This also creates a terrible vibration in the tv and the sound is horrid. Easy fix! Get an affordable sound bar, don't use the tv volume at all and it's a great deal!


Excellent picture but . . . .

I love this brand, this is my third purchase, not because of a fault with the TV, but up-sizing or another brand needs replacing. Be warned though, as good as the TV is and the picture quality is phenomenal, the screws they provide, and they don't provide enough to attach the base to the TV are very poor quality. I had a Vizio that I was replacing because it was developing a dark band across the middle of the screen that was making me think I was developing a brain tumor! It was subtle but very irritating. I used the screws on my Vizio on this TV and that solved the problem but it would have been bad had I not had the other screws. I needed 8 and only got 4 and the 4 were worse than bad. I don't have a problem with the sound, but it could just be me.


Excellent for the price

For $200, this TV is hard to beat. Out of the box, it takes some tweaking with the brightness, contrast, color controls and picture aspect ratio to get it to look its best, but once done the picture is excellent. I'm a little worried about longevity, given some of the reviews, but in the 2 weeks I've had it I couldn't ask for a better TV for the price. Even the onboard speakers are adequate if you're just using this to watch TV shows and news. The sound is full and not tinny. The stand is a bit confusing to assemble with the instructions given, but ultimately no big deal. Inputs are plentiful with a digital/analog coax input, 3 HDMI inputs, a USB port for picture viewing or playing MP3s, and a VGA (D-Sub) input to hook up a PC and use it as a monitor. Again, for the price I am very impressed. I just hope it lasts.


BEST $200 I spent in a long time

I am 58 yr old Female with disability of both shoulders. There was no problem getting the TV set up. Slow and steady is the best advice. The color is a bit weird. There are so many choices so it is up to you to watch and see what works best. The GREAT SIZE and OK sound is more than any person or family could ask for in a modern, 40 inch TV. I hooked up my XBOX and can view Netflix or other programs without having to spend extra for a smart TV. I will also use this TV with my desktop or laptop computers. Great VALUE!!

This is one of the best pictures I have ever had on a Tv. I have only had it a week and love it would purchase another when needed to replace an existing tv in another room
mjr mel 2017-05-02


Perfect and simple right out of the box
JennieV 2017-05-02

The best TV we own!!!

I bought this TV about 2 weeks ago & now have actively sought out where to review. Why you ask? Please let me tell you, Sceptre has an amazing product here. Our 50 in. (Big Name Brand) went out & the cost of the repair was going to be more than we paid for the TV so we went looking for a new one. Money is a little tight right now so we THOUGHT we would have to downgrade, WRONG!! What we had to go down a few inches Sceptre made up for with quality. We now have more features (3 HDMI, USB, Surround Sound ETC.) , better picture quality, light weight, connection to the PC and a price that can‘t be beat. I could go on and on but I will just say that I too (as in so many other reviews) would not hesitate to recommend this TV or any Sceptre product to others.

Outstanding value

Just got this tv and I am very happy with it so far. I ordered it from Amazon and wasn‘t sure what to expect since I am unfamiliar with Sceptre‘s products. I mainly bought this tv because of the cost and because it has analog audio outputs. The picture is great, I had to tweak the settings a little bit, but in less than an hour from opening the box I was enjoying my new tv. The sound is good and I like the bass boost feature. I am really impressed by the performance of this product and the $199.98 I paid makes this one outstanding purchase.



Q:The video card driver is not up to date, how can I fix this? ?

  1. Find out what card you have by going into the Display Settings of your Operating System.  You will be able to see your video card name.
  2. Most video cards are from two companies, nVidia and AMD (formally ATI). You will need to download the latest driver to update your card. Here are the links:
    • nVidia: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    • AMD (formally ATI):  http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx

    • Note: If your video card is not from nVidia, please search for the card on Google (www.google.com) or  visit www.sceptre.com for additional technical support and Live Chat with Customer Tech Support.

  3. Download the newest driver and remove the old driver from the system.  You will also need to remove the plug and play detected monitor driver.
  4. Reboot your computer and install the newest video card driver.
  5. You will need to reboot an additional time (reboot twice) for the system to detect the monitor, then you can adjust the monitor resolution.
