Is there picture lag time when you change channels, or do you get instant picture when you change channels? What are the pros and cons of the remote?

  • A. it depends on the input source. I change channels through a cable box, and I get a 2-second delay between channels. the remote's biggest drawback is that it doesn't function as a universal remote. Although I can use the cable box's remote to control the on/off switch and set volume, I have to use the TV remote to access the TV menu and advanced functions.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I needed a slightly larger tv for my living space and chose this one over two others of nearly the same price. Some reviews said the sound is bad. Sceptre must have repaired this issue because my sound on this tv is excellent. Volume on 10 is perfect for my home. The volume will go as high as 100. My only issue is it appears the attachment for the antenna is crooked and I seem to be having reception problems. I already threw away packaging. Wondering if I must return due to the bent antenna connection. Otherwise I am happy with the television as far as picture and sound quality and I love the swivel stand on this television. It really is a good purchase for the money and all hook ups needed for modern technology are available on this television.

My husband and I bought this tv because it looked to be a good deal. As it turns out it was a great deal. It only costed $279, and it was very easy to set up.The stand is very sturdy. The picture is great, and the volume on the tv is pretty good. I really love the size of the tv.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

To summarize my long review for those that don't care to read all of it, the tv meets all my expectations, performs well, has many features of a nicer tv, but lacks a few specific features. Now for those that want details. I was shopping for cheap TV's for the first time and did not know what to expect. My previous TV was a Samsung, and I was very happy with it, but did not want to pay premium money this time around. I bought a cheap 32" from best buy, was not happy with it (sound issues), so I returned it and decided to do a little bit of an upgrade to this 39". The specs were better, but I was not sure about the brand and figured that it was 50/50 if I would return it. After setting it up and using it for about two weeks, I am confident that this TV will stay and will not be returned unless something unexpected happens. The picture quality is just as good as my Samsung for what I use it for (cable tv and chromecast streaming), and the sound is adequate (better than my returned best buy cheap tv, but not as good as my Samsung). Almost everything else about it I like: the case looks good, swivel base is a plus (but squeaky), plenty of inputs, a few interesting features, quick setup and channel scan (compared to other TV's I've had), and a reasonable remote with many options. This TV meets all of my expectations, but doesn't exceed them (except for the fact that it came with the phillips screwdriver to attach the base, and the driver was fairly high quality: that was a surprise). The things I don't like are pretty nitpicky. I don't like the location of the inputs on the back left side of the TV. I know that is a pretty standard place to put them, but they are too close to the edge so the cables are visible no matter what (the arrangement of my room doesn't help, but if there were some inputs on the back or if the side inputs were pushed a little further in towards the center it wouldn't be a problem). I also don't like the on screen displays. There is nothing wrong with them, they just seem a little low tech and dated. Another thing is that the swivel base is squeaky. I also wish that it had a time on/off feature, but that only seems to be something on higher end tv's, and I wish that the remote had an hdmi button (it has a tv and usb button that quickly takes you to those inputs, but I think most people use hdmi for most of their inputs). One other concern was that it was delivered laying flat. I used to think that they had to stay upright. I hope that doesn't lead to problems. Once again, overall good TV with all the basic features and everything seems to work well.

I love this tv for the value. I bought it three weeks ago and hung it on my patio. I purchased the 3 yr warranty since it is an outside tv, but that was only $28.00 through Wal-mart. The only thing I can complain about is that it sells as a 40 inch tv, but the actual screen (diagonal measurement) is only 38.5 inches. Close enough...haha. Very Happy customer! If this tv lasts outside, I will buy more in the future. kiker127

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I was a hesitant initially on the brand, but did notice many in offices, waiting rooms, so for the price I figured that someone had to make this brand. Received the set in two days, connected to my Directv HDMI and the picture was really good on HD 1080, would highly recommend this brand as an alternative to much higher price sets. The TV does the job at a reasonable price.

when i received the t.v. the bow was very aged and i thought nothing of it. when you turn the t.v. on it takes about a minute to show you the picture. very often it will switch from HDMI 1 to A1 which is the basic cable if you have a coax cable running directly into the t.v. For me i don't since i use the HDMI and then you have to find the original remote that came with the thing or go up to the t.v. itself to switch it back to HDMI. The picture definitely does not seem to be a true 1080p. they could not even put their own label on the bottom of the t.v. on straight or centered. Just very poor quality.

I bought this TV a little over a month ago. Ordered it online and had it shipped to the store for free. I was sent a text upon its arrival. It arrived within the estimated window, and pick-up went smoothly. Set up was easy, even with my new BluRay player. I did mistakenly install the base backwards the first time (LOL). I did quite a bit of research and found that most of the complaints with this TV, (as well as most of the new flat screens), is with its sound quality. I too found that the sound quality was less than desirable. I tried all of the different settings and finally decided to go with my back-up plan, and I purchased a sound bar...and now I have absolutely no complaints. I feel like I got a great bargain...as I purchased the TV and the 2 yr Walmart (bumper to bumper, as I call it) protection plan, and STILL spent less than I would've on a well-known brand. Last week my 5 year old 32" Westinghouse started malfunctioning, so I made up my mind last night to buy the Sceptre 32" as a replacement.

This is a good tv. Sceptre is made by a company called Hitachi. This tv has a very good picture, but poor sound. You can adjust the sound and make it better. I set the treble at 2+ and bass 15+, the eq on Rock. AVL (auto volume level) off. Then it's not so bad sounding tv. But to make my tv sound better. I bought some PC speakers (Logitech Z130 3.5mm mini plug) from walmart and plugged them into the headphone jack of this tv. This turns off the tv internal speakers and uses the pc speakers instead. The tv remote, controls the sound with the pc speakers attached to the tv. You can also go the route and plug a stereo system to the rca outputs on the back of the tv. However, the tv remote will not control the volume through the rca plugs. You would need a remote for the stereo to control the sound levels. Otherwise, this tv is solid. Never had troubles with setting up. Or software issues with the tv freezing up or bugs. It's been a fantastic tv besides the sound area. Well worth it's price, if I had too. I would buy another one.
