Sceptre is a City of Industry, California based company.I have never heard of this brand, but now after seeing it in action, I will remember to check all products from this company in the future
So far this TV is Great and with its low cost and Great workmanship it can not be beat in my book by any great name brand that costs hundreds more. A Great buy from Wal-Mart and did i mention Free shipping to my Home ? That made my choice alot easier.Thanks to those who reviewed this product and took the time to tell us about it.That and the price and free shipping helped me make up my mind to purchase this Great Sceptre product . And I am so Glad I did .
