So far so good!

This is my 5th time buying an Sceptre TV. I have two 32" that I purchased several years ago. Both still work without any issues. For that reason, my mom decided to buy a 40" and this Sceptre 55" Class 4K (2160P) LED TV (U550CV-U). She bought hers over a year ago and hasn't had any problems, so I decided to buy one too. Hope I won't experience any problems with it. So far I love it, except for the remote. My old smaller TVs have a remote with more features, such as up and down favorite channels. This remote is narrower and easier to hold, but you have to click on Favorites button to access a favorites list and choose from there. Not practical! Fortunately for me, I can use the old remotes with it. My mom's identical TV that she purchased a year ago came with a better remote, but was also $50 more. The volume up and down buttons and channel up and down are so far apart that you have to actually look at the remote to find them. They were placed on the four corners of the select up/down/right/left buttons. Other than that everything seems good.


Poor Quality and Customer Service

I purchased this TV in March, and it’s already experiencing issues. The screen is losing picture in patches along the left side. I have contacted Sceptre with my concerns to no avail. In my initial experience with customer service, the chat was closed by the customer service representative after disregarding my question. I then emailed Customer Support with my questions and concerns, but have yet to receive a response. I will not be choosing Sceptre products in the future.


Arrived Broken

The box arrived with a giant gash in it and the TV had a large crack on the back panel. I basically paid full price for a scratch-n-dent TV.


first time Sceptre buyer

This TV is awesome. Great picture quality. It is not HDR and will not outperform a 4k HDR set but you will still get amazing video when watching 4K content. Upscale from non HD content is pretty good too. Watching cable television from a non HD box was not great. Some channels were patchy. It is not a smart tv but I am not looking for that. I use amazon fire tv and the video from that is great. Packaging was sensible. Unboxing was easy. Picked the set up from the store. I can see why some would complain about broken screens, as when loading the tv into my vehicle it took some adjusting to get to lean without pressing on the face of the box. So if you get the box without visible damage then be careful when transporting. The sound is ok for a tv. But for such a good picture it is worth purchasing a home theatre or soundbar. I picked up a soundbar connecting it with optical cable. It has only been a week but so far I am very pleased with this TV!


Not Bad At All For The Price

Awesome TV for the price!...ordered online and picked up from Walmart store with great service and TV easy to setup...only reason I don’t give it 5 stars is the sound is not very good...luckily I had a compatible sound bar that took care of that and saved the day, oh yeah!
