Sceptre Great Monitors bad Tvs!

Garrett W., Newegg
12 August 2013
  • Summary: Never moved tv from its position for 2 years, had 1 hdmi hooked up to it from a Denon receiver and it worked on 1080p for a few months, then 1080i for about a year, randomly while watching a netflix movie the screen went bright white and you could see shades of people in the background slightly...
  • Pros: Was on sale and at the time was regarded as a good tv for the money. Very Easy Setup Lots of Connection ports, good MS
  • Cons: 1. As another reviewer had pointed out, There is a Buzzing noise when the Tv is Shut off that gets really annoying over time. Especially if its in your room where you sleep. 2. The Screen goes black momentarily and then recovers (this was also pointed out by other members). Thisi s known issue, A...

  • Pros: Price. 4 HDMI inputs.
  • Cons: Blacks are not 100% black. There is backlight bleeding bands across the screen in dark scenes.

Extended Warranty is Crooked

Ronald P., Newegg
4 November 2010
  • Pros: Television worked fine for over a year.
  • Cons: When it stopped working, I called the extended warranty service. The warranty specified repair or replace, but they claimed the right to deduct $100 off the purchase price to determine that the product was not working. Do not purchase the extended warranty.

Bad Shipping/Packaging

Miles S., Newegg
15 September 2010
  • Pros: I got 4 broken TV's in a row... One of which I actually didn't even order and got after I got my refund.
  • Cons: I ordered this TV, and in about a week got it in the mail from UPS... All looked fine, but the TV was broken. Colored lines running down the screen, flashing colors, and the like... So I ended up calling Sceptre and they said they would cross ship me a new TV and then pick up my broken one... I d...

Very Nice TV!

Kevin Y., Newegg
25 August 2010
  • Summary: Very Nice TV and I would buy it again in a heartbeat! I have seen my friends 46" Sony Bravia and another friends 46" Panasonic and they have nothing over on the picture quality of my Sceptre. My picture quality is ever bit as good if not better!
  • Pros: This is a very good TV. Bought it on sale @ Newegg for $699 to watch the Superbowl. The picture is very bright and sharp even using my analog antenna. The HD channels are crisp and clear. It was easy to set up with plenty of inputs and outputs. It powers on quickly and I have heard no buzzing fro...
  • Cons: The only reason I would knock off an egg is the sound quality when going past 25 on the volume level. This is really not a concern though as I am using the Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Digital Speaker System which sounds amazing and will rock your socks off!

Know a few things and youll be in love.

Richard F., Newegg
2 August 2010
  • Summary: After realizing that basic cable comes in semi-static like it was an antenna or something, a VCR hooked up will cause 2 to 3 second-long blackouts during the playing of tapes every couple minutes or so, and the power cord wasnt long enough so it came loose enough sometimes to cause the tv to...
  • Pros: You cant get a better selection of inputs on a tv.. you just cant. Its a beautiful looking TV. It came without any dead pixels/white dots! Halelujah! Quite a chance taken when purchasing a big tv online imo.
  • Cons: Sound can deliver vibrations or distortion if you put the bass setting over 50-75% then jack the volume over 35%. It seems once you hit 40% volume, it wont get much louder.. maybe a few decibels louder at 60ish.. hard to tell. Mine came with the following problems that presented themselves shortl...

Great TV for the price

Justin S., Newegg
25 May 2010
  • Summary: I've noticed that the price now is about $1200 dollars and I cannot say whether it would be worth that much or not. But I can tell you mine is a good TV that works.
  • Pros: Big and cheap. I bought this from Newegg on special right after Christmas for like $800 dollars. Its the best TV I could find for that price.
  • Cons: I have had no problems with this TV as of yet.

Nice TV, Nice Price

Brian T., Newegg
24 May 2010
  • Summary: The TV also came with more ports than what was listed in the specs so bonus for me =). It's a great TV at a great price, I was not disappointed.
  • Pros: I received this set about 2 months ago and have had zero problems with it. I was somewhat concerned due to some of the negative reviews it has received. The picture is good, Avatar looked amazing played through my PS3 at 1080p. It doesn't have a low hum as some have complained about. My PS3 games...
  • Cons: About the only two things I can complain about is that the remote is a bit on the weak side, I read on another review that it was the batteries that cause this problem. I'll wait till the current batteries die to replace and then pass final judgment. The only other thing is that it had 1 stuck pi...

better not

Stephen L., Newegg
12 May 2010
  • Summary: I was really excited about the set, especially for the price-point. We tested it with several dvd's including some blu ray through the PS3. Bottom line is I'd rather choke out $1500 for satisfaction than $600 wasted on something that's miserable. This is miserable. RMA tomorrow.
  • Pros: cheap, big. uuh. cheap.
  • Cons: Here we go. Bought this item new, not an open box or recertified. Remote was missing, manuals, warranty card, documentation missing. When the other reviewers say that the default picture settings are bad it is a HUGE understatement. Also an extreme pain (for me anyway) to set the picture settings...
