I love Sceptre products. The are just as good as the pricey name brand products. This was a birthday present for my husband for his "man cave" and he is enjoying the picture and size of his new TV.

Great Features for the Price

I bought this a week ago and the TV is doing great,and the Features are very good for the price. I will know more about how it performs when I play XBOX or watch a Blu-Ray movie and put the TV to a tougher test.

I just got it 3/7/17 and must admit I like it nice picture just like it all together
Jimbow78 2017-03-14

great TV

Shipped fast and was in excellent shape. I love the picture Cristal clear. I would say it‘s as good of a TV as a $500.00 TV. Love it.

Great TV

TV was easy to set up. ATT U-verse tech had no problem synchronizing their remote to the Sceptre.

Best 40" set form the price!

I‘ve had this set for two days now and I‘m very impressed with it. The color is great, and has a better set of adjustments than most. The only thing that would be nice is if the USB would accommodate MP4 video instead of just JPEG and MP3 audio. The only error I found is that the manual states that the set does not have a QAM tuner. Well guess what? When I scanned my cable, I got about 35 digital channels without a box.

Withstanding the test of time!

I‘ve had this TV for 3+ years and I have to say that I‘m pleasantly surprised with its ability to withstand the stresses of moving 3 times and being jostled about in day to day life. Great picture. Sturdy and easy to manipulate. Well worth it.

Easy to hook up.

Had one before and lasted along time. So was a no brainer to get another one.

Excellent Product $ Value

Had a 32" Sceptre 6 years ago for 4 years with no issues. I moved and donated it to a friend ( tv still working ). I moved back from abroad and unfortunately I went to Costco and bought a Vizeo which failed in less than 6 months. I bought this Sceptre to use until my " brand X " can be replaced ( was told it would be 3 weeks ). I can safely say, that not buying another Sceptre right from the beginning was a huge mistake. Going forward, I will stick with this brand.

Simply the best

Give it a try you won‘t be disappointed
Gardener 1 2016-11-20

Purchased after much research

I purchased the tv from Walmart and just recently installed it. It was one of the easiest to set up. The menu walked you through the process. The picture and sound are superb. I did download the complete manual to have it available if and when needed. I am not a great electronics person. but this made me feel as if I was. Thanks fora great product.

Great picture amazing sound

I am amazed with the picture and sound most new TV‘s sound hollow but the sound on this one is amazing.
Chachie2940 2016-10-13

Very user friendly!

We purchased this TV on Walmart.com. We did do research on it and found this to be one of the best values and user friendly TVs on the market! We are more than satisfied with the clarity of the picture! We did have to call technical support to ask a question. The person was so very helpful! We are so glad we purchased Sceptre!!!!

Great TV

I just bought this TV and I‘m really pleased with the picture and the ease of set up. It even included a Philips Head screw driver for attachment of the stand.
robfaye 2016-09-18

Exceptional!! Great TV!

We bought this tv a month ago, and couldn‘t be more pleased! We bought it on sale, and couldn‘t believe all the features that came with it, especially for the price. We like that we‘re able to get to the input & output ports pretty easy, especially, since we have it on the wall. The picture is EXCEPTIONAL We bought a 46‘ Sceptre, on sale from Costco, about 6 yrs ago, when we had never heard of the name "Sceptre"t, & have been very pleased with it. I don‘t think you can go wrong purchasing this tv. It‘s great, especially for the price.
alyshah48 2016-09-13

simply amazing!

I was very surprised by Walmart sale only being 179$ & to think this was my fist flat screen I was a Lil nervous as soon as I got home very easy set up & was really happy when I notice it came with a screw driver ! The picture & quality is so perfect I will recommend 100% a must buy thank you ♡



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.
