A great TV
This is my sixth Sceptre TV and my first smart TV with built-in streaming and Google assistant. The TV came a little late. I was 260 miles from the shipping point and it traveled about 2900 miles to get to me. A problem with the scanning label for shipping. It arrived in good condition, was packed very well. Set-up was simple almost plug and play. There is some programing that needs to be added like activating Google assistant and adding your TV streaming channels. I had a problem with the microphone activation and had to call Sceptre support, they were unbelievable in handling my problem, they sent me a new remote and problem solved. It is the best support I have ever received, I talked to a male technician in California who spoke very clearly, was very knowledgable and solved my problem very quickly. A pleasant person to talk to. The TV works very nice with a good sharp picture, you do need to be in front of the screen to get the best effect. The rear-facing speakers are plenty loud without a soundbar but the quality of sound is a little disappointing, but not so bad that I am going to do anything about it now. For the exceptional price on this TV, I would easily recommend it to anyone. I have included 2 pics one of the home page and one of antenna TV. The two bars protruding below the TV are my brackets to mount a sound bar, which I do not think I am going to do or use.

An adequate TV for a room you're not in often
The pro's: The price, obviously. During setup I was surprised by how responsive the TV was. Android built in is a plus, and Bluetooth. The con's: The biggest issues for me are 1) The TV constantly loses WIFI connection, even when dozen's of other devices aren't experiencing issues. I have to unplug the TV and plug back in. That shouldn't be happening. 2) When watching a longer program on Youtube TV, the audio and video will become un-synced. We don't have cable and have used Youtube TV for a couple years on Apple TV's and a Nvidia Shield (Which is an Android streaming box, so the best comparison to the Sceptre.) We have no audio sync issues on any of those devices, so it has to be the TV. I'm using this TV in my workout room, so I can live with the issues. But if you're considering purchasing for your living room/family room, or kitchen or bedroom, I would seriously reconsider. The quality of the audio isn't great, but I think that falls into "you get what you pay for". Also, small thing, but the implementation of the bluetooth needs to be improved. I use bluetooth headphones and I use them between multiple devices throughout the day. When I've connected them to this TV, turn off TV and go use them on my phone, when I return to the Sceptre, there's no option to reconnect because it thinks the headphones are already connected, but they're not, the audio isn't coming out. So I have to un-pair the headphones, then re-pair. I don't have these issues with the Nvidia Shield.

Great tv great price

I have owned a 50 inch Sceptre tv for 6 years and it finally died a week ago. Has always been a great tv so bought another one same size and is smart with 4k for less than I paid for my old one and it is a great tv. Only have had it a few hours and really like it a lot. Well worth the money I hope it lasts as long as my last one.

Best bang for the buck.

Best bang for the buck. I have been buying Sceptres for years and they are great for the money! Android TV is way better than Roku!! If you get this TV you may want to buy a soundbar with it ( the speaker are crap )

Good UHD LED TV for the Price

Good UHD LED TV for the Price, speakers are OK, they actually get pretty loud, stereo sound is almost non-existent, so quality is not the best, even with tweaking the equalizer manually. the louder they get the worse they sound, sound bar recommended for better tones and quality.

Bought the TV after I got another TV with no legs, Power Cords, or remote. Received this one since I didn't have any issues with my Sceptre 32", and no sound. Bought RCA jacks like the Customer Service Tech told me and still doesn't allow sound. If you have Direct TV or Satellite I would avoid this TV.

1. The volume should be fairly loud when it is turned to the maximum.
by TechnicalSupport
2. Very. We barely have it turned up, half way on the volume is blasting. The sound quality is the best I've experienced on a TV since the conversion to flat screen TVs. It's the first smart TV I've haven't needed a sound bar for.
