Bought this TV to use with our Playstation 4 Pro, easy set up let us play in minutes! However, if you're looking to use it for watching TV it doesn't come with a 4K HDMI cable. One will run you about $20 so it's not a big deal.

Our family has purchased 3 TV's from Sceptre. All of them have an excellent picture, but only one has good sound (the 40 inch). The Sceptre sound bars are also great, and with the price they sell them at, (TV and sound bars) it's not hard on the wallet to get a sound system from them too. Wal-Mart doesn't cover everything with their purchase protection, which really ticked me off when the coaxial piece for the antenna broke on my other Sceptre, but all I had to do is call Screptre, and they replaced the part for free, no questions asked. I called on Friday, and the part was in my mailbox on Tuesday. Who wouldn't love a company that does this? The only problem I have with this brand is you have to order their products online, as Wal-Mart doesn't carry them in-store. You can order it online and pick it up at the store though, if you don't want it delivered to your house when you're not home. I love my TV, and I love Sceptre.
What an awesome deal! I'm using it for my computer monitor, and It was better than I expected. I have a EVGA 980 graphics card and it handles 4k UHD easily. Make sure your internet speed is at least 20 Mb per sec or it may have to buffer videos to avoid stopping and starting. The 4k is beautiful and detailed with great color rendition. Setup is easy, as I didn't have to do any firmware update to prevent input lag. all my friends who bought other 4k tv's had to update their tv as there was major input lag. Better get this tv before the price goes up. The word is getting around and demand is certain to go up because of price and performance being outstanding. I have been thinking about a larger monitor in the 40" range for a long time. I research every purchase I make and when the Sceptre came out, the reviews were great. It is not a smart tv, but because I'm using it for my monitor, my computer is way more capable in handling those functions. Bottom line, for the price, it's an outstanding 4k tv/monitor.
Screen reflects a lot of ambient light so is best viewed in darkened room. I use with antenna, so am not able to source 4k. 1080p works well and is sufficient resolution for TV viewing. 4k would be very useful if screen were being used as a computer monitor at close distance. There is no audio out that is volume adjustable by the TV. Even what appears as a head set output, in the manual, does not have volume controlled by the TV. I had to buy a separate 3.5mm to two RCA adapter cable to get the audio into my entertainment system, and I have to use the separate entertainment system remote to control the audio volume. It would be nice to use the TV remote to control the volume but that is not possible with this 43" TV. (Sceptre's 40" TV does offer volume control of the 3.5mm audio output.) I had to make sure the TV surround sound processor is turned off so it doesn't conflict with the surround sound processor in my entertainment system. This TV replaced my old 40 inch CRT tube TV. The flat screen feet extend forward from the flat screen over 4 inches, for stability. This forces the screen to be more than 4 inches away from the front edge of the surface supporting the TV. The old CRT tube used to be right up by the front edge of the cabinet, so I discarded the flat screen's feet, and constructed a stand for the TV using a flat piece of cabinet wood, corner brackets, and aluminum angle. I mounted this flat screen using the wall mount screw holes at the back of the TV, allowing the TV screen to now be as close to the front of my cabinet, as was my old CRT screen. The black bezel frame around the screen is very nice. It's only .5 inch wide and 3.3 inch of that is flat and rough textured to not reflect glaring light. The instructions provided are readable, but do not provide much information. The function of all the connectors is not very detailed. To compensate for this lack of information, however, I found the technical support line to be quick and professional. They explained to me that I had to press "5-1" on the remote to get channel 5, as just pressing "5" will not work. They also explained that the L and R audio output sockets do not work, and the only way to get audio out to RCA connectors, was to purchase a separate adapter cable for use with the 3.5mm output, and that doing that does not provide volume control. The TV did arrive in perfect condition and on the date promised. It has been working well, with the above mentioned limitations, for a week or so. I think it is a very good value for someone wanting a modern TV at a low price.
This has got to be one of the best text buys I've ever made. Prices have plummeted on 4K screens over the past couple years, but this is ridiculous. It really displays 4K res and does so without degrading the picture in any way. Moreover, unlike most LEDs (4K or not), this can actually play lower res content and still look good, even DVDs. Much like plasmas can. It is not a smart TV, but that is not an issue for me. My peripherals are smart already, so it would be redundant. My only real complaint is it does not easily accept 4K Netflix (YouTube is fine though). You basically need a smart 4K BD player, one that has built-in Netflix 4K app support. That is the only drawback of it not being a smart TV (although even some smart TVs have apps that won't support 4K on 4K screens, I've heard). Never thought I'd be able to afford a 4K screen so soon. Just a great deal.
Partner no one's fault but mine I thought I was it should a much bigger TV also it does not have connections from our older surroundsound system using analog connections overall it don't seem if this is the bigger a better TV than the one I have which is 42 inches I thought I was getting a great deal but the price was right and shows a nice picture overall
Bought this TV in December 2015. 2 weeks ago the picture started circulating through various solid colors. The tech from Sceptre called it being in test mode (whatever). So luckily I bought the warranty with the tv. Called in a claim thinking they would just change out my broken TV with a new TV. Nope. Walmart Product Protection sent me a box and I had to pack and send it in. Its been a week and they still don't have the part to fix it. Luckily we had another, older tv, we could use. We don't watch much TV, so thats the other thing, thats concerning. This would happen a lot quicker with someone who watches a lot of tv, it seems. There is a positive here though..... The picture really is nice for the price. Hopefully they fix my tv and I don't have any more issues with it. I would not recommend this purchase. Pay another 100$ and get the name brand.
