Summary: Whatever you do....DO NOT BUY THIS EVER!!!!!!!! I bought two of these TV's in Feb of 2013 and they've both finally died one in the first few months and the other this past week these TV's seem like such a great bargain but they really aren't trust me the customer service sucks they'll try to charge you extra and make you pay to ship your defective product back to them..
I sent them proof of purchase and said I was providing it in case the problem got worse after the warranty period

Summary: You may want to avoid the Sceptre TV brand. I reported a problem 2 months before my warranty ended. It was intermittent and they suggested I try a few things. I sent them proof of purchase and said I was providing it in case the problem got worse after the warranty period. Well it got worse and they flatly said sorry you are no longer under warranty.
Summary: Don't bother wasting your money unless you want to buy a 12-24 month throw away. As with all the other reviews...the tv was great for about 12 months. It's now 18 months after I bought this for my son for Christmas and we've got the dreaded black screen. Unplug, plug it back in works for about a month. Now all we get is the red light and the blue when you turn it on. Not worth the electricity that trickles into it. BUT...you get what you pay for.
Summary: Picture was not bad, and for the purchase date the price was not bad. Based on a couple of reports of the picture going black right away, I thought I was safe if it worked a couple of months. But no. Two months out of manufacturer's warrant the picture went black. It is dead. I bought a replacement Vizio LED Smart TV of the same 32" size at Wal-Mart tonight for only $10 more than this junk cost me.
Summary: Bought this for my teenage daughter to replace a old big TV so she could have a slim flat screen with all the hookups she needed for her wii & xbox. It is ok for her, but I can tell a major difference in it compared to our $2000+ Sony & our other Plasma TVs & LED TV's by other brands. But for her it is fine, for the price it was great. You get what you pay for.
Summary: I purchased two of these televisions and have had issues with both of them. The first one I bought had a problem in the sound system. You could not hear the television in a very small room. Finally, the power supply ceased to function leaving the screen black. The 2nd television has speaker rattle, similar to a blown speaker. The power light also flickers on and off. I purchased an LG for more money to replace these televisions, and the LG is worth the extra money.
Stopped turning on and terrible sound, (less than a yea)

Summary: We had purchased this to replace a very old bedroom TV and figured anything would be an upgrade.. Although there was a large number of reviews pointing out the terrible sound, we thought it wouldn't be an issue with us due to having a smaller bedroom. Turned out it really was horrible, and it sounded like you were listening to a TV that was in another room or through the walls..
Summary: Wow! I bought two of these for use in my department for video conferences and product data displays. In less than 9 months I've had to repair one of these twice. The other one just went out as well. So, 3 repairs in 9 months. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THESE. Spend a little extra and buy a Samsung or Sony.
