    Good for the price

    Overall, it's a nice TV. I use it with my PC via the HDMI port. I run it at 1920x1080@60Hz, with 4:2:2 pixel format. Overall, it looks and performs great. No dead pixels. Strong and sturdy stand with only 4 screws [and it came with a decent philips screwdriver]. Very nice whites and blacks after tweaking the color and contrast/brightness. However, text isn't displayed as good as other LCD/LED TVs of this size on the market, but this one is a lot cheaper than those TVs. I traded a 42in HiSense LED TV [in related products] for this one and saved 100$ in the process while adding a 3-year service plan to this TV [which I highly recommend]. The sharpness is where this TV lacks. Text that takes only a few pixels to display gets blended with its surroundings [especially when its black text and a bright color background], but it's hard to notice. Games, videos, pictures all look fantastic for the price. The menu is nothing to brag about, but it does have all the basic settings. The speakers are pretty pitiful, but that is what I expected for two 10-watt speakers. Remote is quite nice for the price [soft buttons, good connections and layout, came with batteries], and the TV was packaged very well [thanks, Sceptre!]

    Beautiful picture

    I can't say enough about how beautiful the picture quality is. Colors are vibrant, contrast is great, and the screen is a full 1080p HD. Even at non-native resolutions the picture quality is still good, with few jagged edges and no tearing. The response time is very good. Sound is a different matter. Very few flat panel TVs have great sound built in, and this one is no different. The built in speakers are adequate. The unit does support several methods of input/output for both sound and video, though, so even if you only have an old stereo amp you can get good sound from it. I'm using the digital coax audio out to an older, Sony 5.1 audio amp and it sounds great. My only other nit pick is the way various video inputs are selected. With three HDMI inputs, a USB, a PC, and component video to choose from, selecting the one you need is a two step process of pressing "Source" on the remote and scrolling to the one you need. I use a programable custom remote and would prefer direct selection of inputs or even "next" and "prev" functions for ease of programing. Most people won't have this problem, my setup is kind of unusual. The unit arrived in good condition and was well packaged to prevent damage. Only minor assembly was required to mount the base and all tools and instructions were provided. At 20 pounds, it was easily handled and easy to set up. The unit looks good, even when off, thanks to it's thin bezel design. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Great Product for Price

    Bought this TV for less than $400 and did not know what to expect given that I have never heard of the brand. Decided to take some chances. I have had this product mounted on the wall and viewing for about 2 weeks now. It is not my primary TV but it certainly is a great TV. The picture quality is superb (Watched the Transformers - Dark of the Moon in bluray), the sound is amazing for the room size and it is got 4 HDMI ports and many more others. Though the room is well lid during the day, the picture clarity remains great. I do not have any cons! I hope it lasts. I will definitely recommend this TV.

    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.

    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.

    Meh... You Get What You Pay For...

    Bottom line is if you are looking for a top quality, sharp and super crystal clear picture on your television, go with a brand name and size down. The only setting in which the picture looks the clearest is normal, leaving a 6 inch black border on the sides, and a 4 inch border on the top and bottom, making this 40 inch screen actually much smaller. If you are not planning on using an HDMI cable, the picture is blurry at best. With an HDMI cable, the picture is clear, but the colors are washed out. Compared to my 47 inch Vizio, which I have had for 4 years, this tv is subpar. Now I understand the difference between a brand name versus an off brand. I am returning this to Walmart tomorrow, and plan to purchase a 32 inch Vizio in it's place. Happy hunting! :-D

    terrible!

    This t.v. took a killing in less then a week of installing it! the channels now all of a sudden look like it is getting blended by a blender or has two pictures in one! I'm returning it today. Getting my money back!

    gave it a chance

    Maybe mine was one of the few bad ones, I loved it for the three days that it worked. Now am not willing to waste any more time troubleshooting and awaiting another week for a replacement and driving back and forth to the store and hope that this one works. Now i will spend the extra $$$ and buy another sharp and enjoy my new tv for years to come like the first one.

    awesome for the money!

    This TV had majority good reviews but I was afraid to buy it because when there were bad ones they were bad. Let me just say I'm so glad I didn't listen! I was skeptical the whole way opening it and putting it together but when I got it all set up and turned it on I was blown away. I had it shipped from site to store which was wonderful! I ordered it on Sunday and was told it would be ready by Thursday but was able to pick it up on Wednesday! I had a 32" before this, Samsung and I'd say this TV is just as good if not better. Clear picture and a giant screen. The speakers are complete garbage though but there's a headphone jack in the back and I just attached some computer speakers instead. I will also say the stand rotates which is good and bad. Good for viewing purposes but bad if its knocked at all. Theres also no buttons on the actual TV so if you lose the remote your screwed. Overall very excellent TV! Other 40"-ers are at least $500. I would also reccomend the warranty its pretty cheap and covers just about everything. You never know with cheapo TVs.

    Sceptre HDTV Rocks

    I've waited to give a review wanting to see how this television held up long term. I purchased it several months ago and have to say it's the best television I've ever owned. It arrived on time in good condition. Setup is nothing, attach the stand, hook up your cables and plug it in. My husband was pleased to find it up and running when he came home from work. Picture is beautiful. We have surround sound but sound through the television speakers is acceptable. Due to physical problems with pain I'm up much of the night watching television. This set has almost run non stop with no problems at all. With all of this and the unbelievably low price I couldn't be more pleased. Will be purchasing a second one in the near future. This would make a great gift for someone needing or wanting a quality set. They'll think you paid hundreds.
