  • Summary: Just had to return today after 3 days of using. Picture so dark I could barely make out features..even when changed settings to make brighter. Also had to end up putting speakers on it because volume so low EVEN when turned up to 75+. Don't know if I just got a lemon, but decided not to go with this brand again..get what you pay for? And I am not picky, nor so old that I can't see or hear.

  • Summary: This TV is really lightweight, I was shocked. cheap price. It worked great until I put the stand on it, about 6 months later when we moved it to another room, then the picture is all screwed up and cannot be fixed. My advise is only buy this TV if you plan on mounting it to the wall ONLY.

Bad built in sound from the start, Dies less then two years later.

The King of No-Pants, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: This TV was the purchase of a desperate college student wanting to play The new Borderlands 2 on a screen bigger then 22". From the start the sound on the TV was weird it would randomly increase and decrease. You would be watching something and it would suddenly get very quiet. you would turn the tv up all the way and suddenly it would get so loud. Now more recently, The screen isn't turning on.

Goes Dark Within a Year

Clyde, Amazon
30 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought 7 of these for our motel. I now have three that have gone dark. I give it 2 stars and not just one because sending them in for service is pretty easy when you request it online. Within 48 hours I get an email with a label to print and if I need one, a box is sent to me to ship it back in (now I just keep one around). Within 2 weeks I get the TV back.

Bad Luck

Robert L., Newegg
10 January 2011
  • Summary: Seems like lots of other people got them just fine. Newegg shipped it fast, and did a great job of handling my RMA. I will always buy here.
  • Pros: It was a very nice looking set especially for the money. The base was as others had mentioned, but it didn't seem at risk of breaking. I like that it attached and removed with screws, not plastic teeth that would have been a pain to get off.
  • Cons: Mine was DOA. Just bad luck I suppose, but I rely on the reviews here as much as anyone to determine the likelihood of getting a lemon.

Lousy picture, bad sound.

BRIAN M., Newegg
12 December 2010
  • Summary: Given the disparity in reviews, I think one of three things has occurred. 1. TVs were manufactured in different plants. 2. Different production runs turned out different quality TVs. 3. Quality control at the manufacturer is poor. With these thoughts in mind I'm posting my serial# for comparison purposes.
  • Pros: Got it for a low price. Lots of inputs including VGA. Swivel base. Free HDMI cable. Decent looking TV...when it's off. :) 200 x 200 vesa mounting holes
  • Cons: The picture looks like the movie "A Scanner Darkly" I calibrated the TV with DVE, through the HDMI and coax inputs, with the same result I have yet to try the component or PC inputs, but I expect the same results. I am not as sensitive as my son is to ghosting, but this TV has very noticeable ghosting/trails. The HI-Def channels on our Comcast cable, "almost" have a decent picture. The sound is pretty bad out of the box, got it almost listenable with adjustments.

Worth $220., no more, follow up review

Anonymous, Newegg
5 December 2010
  • Summary: I dropped my initial rating down another egg since this is a major flaw with this TV. I will call Sceptre tomorrow and ask if there is a work around for this.
  • Pros: I tried to calibrate this TV with my Ovation software and DVD player using an HDMI cable. Like some other reviewers the Tint control was greyed out. When I switched the source back to TV and an analog channel the Tint control was accessible, on a digital channel it was greyed out again.
  • Cons: I had to switch back and forth between an analog channel and my DVD player on HDMI1 to calibrate the Tint, a major PITA. Is this normal for this TV? Maybe, since other reviewers are having the same problem.

ghostly

David K., Newegg
3 December 2010
  • Summary: Given that nobody else has complained about incredible amounts of ghosting/motion blur, I am starting to suspect that I've actually got a bad unit. I suppose I can try returning it. I mean, I know 720p, 60hz, 6.5ms isn't going to have the best picture, but I've never seen a good working lcd this bad. Wish me luck.
  • Pros: It was a killer deal for black friday. Got the tv with 2 year warranty. Speakers are loud enough not to need external. Looks nice.
  • Cons: I can't stand to use it. Everything ghosts really bad. My wife says she can't see it, but I went from a lower-res CRT to this, and now I can't even play Halo or watch action movies, because any rapid movement turns the screen into a giant smear. It totally sucks.

Stuck Pixels

Brandon R., Newegg
1 December 2010
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY A TV ONLINE.
  • Pros: Great sound and features, vga hook is sweet even with a netbook.
  • Cons: 7-10 stuck pixels in a cluster, got rid of 1/2 of them but still sucks havin a green spot in the mid. of your screen. And a return or warranty will cost you 50 + $ so Ill deal with it. It my bedroom tv so Ill live.
