    Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 3466reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Better Than Expected For what I paid for this, I didn't expect it to be quite as good as it actually is. Yes, there're better 40" 1080p LCD TV's out there, but when they cost more than twice as much for only a slightly better picture and sound, it's hard to justify opting for those over this one.The picture is still plenty clear, bright, and contrasty, without being so much so that highlights are blown out and shadows are blocked up, with very little in between. You just have to be patient in manually changing the image settings. I found that a brightness of 75, contrast of 50, and a color saturation of 25 with the tint left dead-center produces the best results, no matter the material being viewed.As for the sound, folks have complained that it's prone to getting really loud, then really quiet, without warning and seemingly without reason. This is caused by the auto volume leveling software in the TV. It's really quite terribly implemented. Turn off AVL/AVS, and this problem should go away.One of the really cool things about this TV, besides the huge array of input options, is that it has a 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of the TV. This will allow you to use computer speakers for external audio, if you'd like to go that route and save some money on what you'd otherwise pay for a sound bar, bookshelf system or full-blown HT system. You can get computer speakers that sound as good as if not better than a $250 sound bar for around $40.This is about the best bang-for-buck TV I've found anywhere, and even being the A/V aficionado I am, I have absolutely no problems recommending it. Again, for more than twice the price, you'll get only marginally better quality, but since the whole point of shopping at Walmart is to save money, why not go ahead and save a ton of it by getting this TV? You'll be extremely hard-pressed to find a better deal even here. 10/28/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by great value - good choice for external audio Great picture. Default audio isn't the best, but it can be adjusted so that it's ok. If it lasts, it's an absolute homerun (I've never had a piece of no-name electronics fail, but I have had an expensive Sony TV fail the day after the warranty expired). I picked this TV because of the connections - particularly the audio. You can't tell from the useless Walmart web specs, but it has every meaningful kind of video input, and both digital and analog audio outputs. Digital audio outputs are missing from lots of the low-end TVs, and analog audio out is a nice touch that's hard to find anywhere. There's also computer sound/video inputs and a usable USB port. If you're willing to buy things sight-unseen, and aren't scared off by the lack of a major brand name, this TV is worthy of consideration. 05/30/2011

And I am so Glad I did . 11/24/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Purchase This is a great flat screen! I researched and researched different flat screens online and the reviews on this one were awesome!!!! Thanks to those who took the time to give reviews, it made my decision much easier. The only down side is that you have to purchase HD Cables.... 06/07/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by GREAT TV!!! If you want a modern tv and don't need the built-in wi-fi, apps, or 3D abilities, then I HIGHLY recommend this tv. I am writing this after unboxing and testing both the 40" and 32" versions so know that I cannot yet speak to long-term performance. However, I am so impressed that I'm taking the time to share a review and perhaps answer questions you didn't know you have.THE BASICS: I think both the picture and sound are VERY good. It's lightweight and easy to setup. If you want to hang the tv, screws will have to come with the bracket.This review covers the same exact model in both 32" and 40" as I got both.HOW I USE IT: (I've thoroughly tested these too)* Broadcast TV* HDMI tablet, phone, or computer input for video or pics or sharing web page viewing with others or computer instruction* USB thumb drive left plugged in back loaded with mp3 music libray and pics. It's easy to play the music based on folders (not tags as far as I can tell) and use the tv as a digital picture frame at other times. This is great for a parent!!! Also, on the wall on a big screen it makes for some cool rotating pictures if you like landscapes and such like I do with computer backgrounds. With such a large screen, varying landscape and portrait pictures are easily viewed and not an issue like in small, digital frames.WHY THIS TV IS IMPRESSIVE (what isn't advertised):1) Unexpected excellent PACKAGING: It was well-protected with all applicable items in their own ziploc style bags which I will recycle to use with small items. The INSTRUCTION BOOK (if you need it - I never needed it) is in all color and large print. It even comes with its own little screwdriver that you can have immediately available to attach the base. The 40" already came with the post portion installed. I figure they do this for convenience. It can easily be removed if you are going to hang it. The 32" required 2 minutes to attach the same post. I ended up with a handy phillips head screwdriver as well as packaging that I can recycle for projects from large, sturdy cardboard backing to corner sponge foam that can be taken apart by the layers and used in various projects.2) The tv CONFIGURATION MENU is VERY INTUITIVE. Again, I never even needed to use the instruction book.3) The REMOTE CONTROL is has a lot going on, but that is to the user advantage (see the pic). It's very comfortable in hand and allows for quick viewing changes in aspect, picture quality, sound quality, and much more. It appears to have some sort of universal programming for a soundbar at bottom too; however, I do not have one so did not test this ease of use or take the time to read about it in the instruction book.4) The tv can SWIVEL on the base about 20 degrees each direction. How easily it swivels simply depends on how tightly you install the screws on the base. This is a very easy adjustment. I did all of this intuitively. I didn't even know they could do that.5) I didn't expect much of the USB interface. I was wrong! It can play mp3 files and show pictures whether individually or as a slideshow. The menu for navigating any of these is very USER FRIENDLY and easy for people of any age or lack of tech experience. I navigated a portable drive of music organized by folder like in windows and easily got to what I wanted. The onscreen interaction is also intuitive in use with the remote.6) The SOUND is good for a modern, thin, flat panel LED TV. Ours are on table tops so the sound reflects well. I do not have to turn them up loud at all! It has easy-to-use sound adjustments as well as an equalizer whether for tv shows or for the type of music to which you are listening.7) The PICTURE is very good with easy aspect ratio adjustments when needed as well as picture quality. HOWEVER, I would say they picture quality "presets" could be more different. I tried a Cielo tv that did this very well. I gave that up for the other features of this Sceptre. I note this picture aspect again later with more info. This should not be a detractor, however, from purchasing.8) HOOKUP was easy. All 3 HDMI inputs are on the side as well as the one USB. The antenna feed and VGA are at bottom. I would recommend leaving a VGA cord attached if you intend to use that. Detaching and reattaching to the bottom can be difficult. The power cord was the average length if not slightly longer. It is a "utility" style cord - round with a 3-prong plug.9) INPUT SOURCES are easily changed through Source on the remote or some remote shortcuts. Cielo has a slight one-up on this, but this is very good.10) CHANNEL CHANGING RESPONSE TIME. I'm using over-the-air tv. Punching the channel number takes 5-6 seconds to respond if you don't hit the ENTER button which is far down the numbers section. It takes about 3 seconds after hitting enter immediately. RECALL to switch between previous channels takes 2-3 seconds. POWER ON takes about 9-10 seconds for the channel to show.11) The BRUSHED METAL appearance of the bezel as well as the base (the base is strong plastic) are very nice. You only notice it up close. Unlike the picture advertising this, it does not appear silvery. It is black. The bezel is only about 1" around.12) Power COST - 32" shows under $9 based on average cost and 5 hours use. 40" shows under $12 for the same.13) The digital tuner picked up everything that my local channels have as opposed to the older tv on the same antenna (it is a good, indoor, flatwave antenna after MANY attempts to find one that worked well).14) It has a SLEEP function with a simple one-button access.15) It does have a small, ALWAYS-ON red light at the bottom. This turns blue when the tv is turned on.If I want "smart tv" features other than 3D, I can get a Roku or similiar item that can be moved to any tv. I do most if not all of that stuff through a tablet or tv anyhow.The only reason I gave it 4 vs. 5 stars is because I think the picture features can be adjusted better like the Cielo that I tried. If you manually adjust brightness and contrast, you have to go really high or low before you see a difference. As previously mentioned, the presets for this could be better. I only can say this after first settling on the Cielo until it has other problems arise with the screen, unfortunately (and it didn't have the USB functions). However, I don't have to do a lot of adjusting as the pic is good.I liked this tv and the USB abilities so well that I bought another for a family member for Christmas. Users of this tv cover all age ranges and do not have to be tech savvy to take advantage of the features! It's a GREAT PRICE for a GREAT PRODUCT. I've never used Sceptre before. If these tv's last well in the long run, they have a repeat customer in me!Walmart will also for the free, fast, ship-to-home part for such a product also. Standard shipping came quickly by Fedex and showed no signs of bad handling. 12/03/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by excellent product! I've had the tv for 2 weeks now and it's excellent. The picture quality is awesome and the sound is great. The screen actually swivels and that's an awesome feature. I was a little nervous because I've never heard of the name brand and the price was so low but I took a chance with this product. I also made sure to purchase the 4 year warranty. 12/29/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good tv for a great price Everything I expected in a LED television. I love it! Perfect size and at the right price! The sound levels are a bit off but the picture is great and the different settings make it even better! There are three slots for the use of a HDMI cable which is convenient if you like to plug in other devices to your tv. Overall this tv has many features and is worth the amount. 12/27/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great buy with little mone For the price this is an excellent choice, I just purchased and it was easy to assemble and hooks up easily to any kind of satellite or cable system. Make sure you have or purchase an HDMI cord...other than that it is a great buy still excited about my purchase and the picture quality is great....luv it!!! 04/20/2011
