Good TV... For the Price

This TV was a steal on Black Friday! I was looking for a 40” TV that was 1080P or greater and wouldnt hurt my wallet. Upon taking the TV out of the box and assembling it, the legs are a little wobbly after trying to screw them in with many attempts and the strength of two people. If you look for it, you can see the backlighting on the TV quite easily, especially when it is showing darker images, though after time i just got used to it. Another thing, as other reviews have said, the sound quality on this thing is horrible... and i mean HORRIBLE... like cover your ears and hum loudly so you dont hear this thing, bad... i definitely recommend using a sound bar with it. Overall, this TV is great for the price! I would definitely buy it again — as long as i have my sound bar.


This rocks! Smart TV's are overrated!

I am actually surprised about this item. I actually have been using this as a computer monitor and unlike allot of people I do not miss the "smart television" abilities. I did allot of research and I did buy the extended warranty cause I read about some dead pixels and shipping incidents. That has not been the case, however and the only thing I have ran across is the fact that this is way bigger than I anticipated. With my current GPU it allowed me to upscale this resolution to 8K and I am including a screenshot. So I have the computer to do all the things a smart TV could do and for that matter you could just spend like thirty dollars and get a HDMI add on player. So yes I am very happy and suggest others to buy this unit.


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.


Great tv, sound is bad. Still highly satisfied!

Really happy with the picture! Can’t beat the price for this 55” TV. As the reviews clearly show...this sound is terrible. Just as bad as most lower end Flat screens. Who cares...just buy a sound bar or surround sound. Works great with our 4K Apple TV. Highly reccomend. Purchased the 3 year protection. Just becauae at this price point if it last more than 3 years that is a huge win. What are tou waiting for? Buy it!


Great tv, sound is bad. Still highly satisfied!

I'm happy with the TV so far. The picture is excellent. The sound is excellent. Easily mounted, easy to use. I only have a fire stick it immediately picked up the fire stick. No complaints at the moment with this TV. Screen us true to size and can't beat a 55inxh for $199.
