Summary: The TV was very dependable until it stopped working the other day. Power light would not come on, ac cord was checked and changed, outlet ok, neither remote or buttons on the tv could make it work. Blue indicator light was not on. Had no power failures or spikes at the house.
Pros: Picture quality was very good. Sound was also pretty good.
Cons: TV died after 5 years of use and would get very warm after a few hours on. You could heat the room with the warm air coming out of the vents! Similar to other brands of flat screen I own too.
Summary: Paid $189.00 and 8 months later started loosing picture in the upper right hand corner. Replaced it with an RCA of the same size. My 32" Sceptre with remote (batteries NI) is for sale! $20, slightly used..
