I love this tv. I have 5 sceptre tv‘s now and love all of them this 43 inch is the biggest one I have. it has great video and the picture is really clear.

Beautiful 43 inch Sceptre 1080p LED TV!

I Love the size of this Sceptre 43 inches 1080p LED TV X438BV-FSRR (2018) for my Living Room. I read many of the reviews before purchasing and was concerned about the complaints of poor sound quality and delivery issues as well as one broken TV. However, I am happy with the sound quality on this TV. This TV arrived a day early to my front door by the FEDEX driver in perfect shape. I have had problems with FEDEX in the past so I left instructions with them BEFORE delivery that this product is fragile and has to be delivered to my front door and not thrown in the lobby of my apartment complex. I am a lady over 60 with arthritis so I waited about a week after I received this TV hoping to find someone to help me set it up since the directions stated two people should lift the TV. I ended up doing it myself with no problems. I gently moved the boxed TV right in front of my 48 X 24 living room table without picking the box up. I then opened the box on the bottom side up carefully removing all the wrapping. I have arthritis so I hesitated at first but to my surprise this TV was light as I gently lifted it on the table. The rest of the set-up was so simple for a novice like myself. I appreciated that the manufacturer even included a screwdriver along with the screws for the legs. I love my new Non-Smart 43 inch TV that replaced my Smart 32 inch living room TV. I love the Guide Feature on the remote that gives a description of programming for most of the stations. Overall, I am very happy with the sound and picture quality of this non-smart TV as well as the 43 inch size for my small 1 bedroom apartment. I have a Roku stick so I did not need or want a Smart TV. Wonderful purchase.



Overall just a great TV and an great value for the price. So good, I bought a second one.


This is a STEAL of a deal

Great basic tv, it honestly is such a freaking steal for the price. There is no smart tv functionality (but if you have a gaming console or a Chromecast/firestick buying a smart TV is a waste of money). My only problem with this tv is that the stand puts the screen at a 90° angle, which causes a stupid amount of glare.


Worth the money

Well worth the money!!


Surprisingly awesome!!

Great picture and suprisingly amazing sound!! For the price I highly recommend this TV!! What a great deal!



Give the prices of TV's what with smart, 4k, and HD this TV certainly fits the bill! Perfect for guest room no need for all the newest 4k\ 8k technology. Works great, the picture is clear. The sound is not as great as most others, but as I said great for calming guest room. No need for a booming sound.


Great buy for your Buck!

Nice TV for the money! Using it in our office so don't need all the crazy stuff. Nice Screen, very clear and lightweight!


Light with really good picture quality

Very lightweight and has great picture


Great for the price.

I bought this to replace a smaller Sceptre TV that I bought a few years ago. It has a great picture, but in my experience the volume is a bit wonky with my Fire stick so I purchased the Sceptre sound bar as well. Really pleased with my purchase.



I wasn’t sure about buying a tv online because of the horror stories in packaging and shipping but this product ended up being in PERFECT condition, works great, easy to use & set up.


Lotta bang for your buck.

Great tv for the money, I use it for Karaoke, DJ and it works great. Beatiful picture, great price. Great for gaming too, with headphones.


Very nice

This is the second Sceptre TV that we have purchased. Picture quality is great! Very happy with this purchase.


Excellent television especially for the price

Easy setup. Excellent picture. As good a television as those that sell for more.


Perfect TV for computer monitor

Sure, this TV is not 4K. But as a computer monitor, using HDMI you get a perfect 1920 x 1080 resolution So much more cost-effective than any monitor. Looks great on desk.


Great Picture.

Great TV. I have a Samsung 65” in my living room. This is in my bedroom. Very close in quality and 1/4 the price



I love the TV


Amazing for price, but...

I absolutely love it. It’s amazing quality for such a low price. Unfortunately, I accidentally bought two and discovered one of them had a large crack on the screen, so it’s a risk but the one that didn’t have a crack has absolutely nothing wrong with it and I love it.


Nice picture

Love it, great picture


5 star if you use your own speakers

Sceptre 43 inch TV, great value for money. Would like to give 5 stars but the sound quality is pretty bad. It just sounds metallic no matter what.


Good price for the quality

Best bang for the buck!




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.
