Pros: Good Picture

Cons: Short Life
Picture failed after only a year. A known problem many people have had the same problem. I will never buy a Sceptre product again.

2 out of 5 eggsSceptre 42"

Pros: affordable, good picture

Cons: short lifespan

Other Thoughts: I like this TV, but expected it to last more than 18 months. Screen went black...and it's not worth the cost to have it repaired

4 out of 5 eggsGood TV but poor sound

Pros: Priced very well. Picture is great, 4 HDMI inputs are nice, and stable base.

Cons: Sound quality is very poor. Cannot get it past 15 before the speakers sound terrible. I highly recommend connecting TV to external sound system.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: Many media hookups, great picture, was incredibly cheap when on sale, around $400.

Cons: Sounds a little iffy, Not inconsistent, just not the best speakers. When the package arrived it was just the box like you'd see on display at a big box store but with obvious signs of travel damage. Though the TV itself came in great condition, I was very worried opening up the box.

Other Thoughts: If you pay $400 for it like I did, you can't beat it. Seriously.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV, Newegg is Awesome, Ups Sucks

Pros: The image is absolutely stunning; this is true 1080p HD and such a big screen for such a ridiculous price; Newegg just got robbed ;]

Cons: Not really a con, but the tv came in a box that was beat to ****; I previously purchased a Sceptre Tv from newegg that was smaller and when UPS delivered it, I had to RMA because they broke the TV when it was dropped. This box came completely torn up and with a giant hole on the side of the box; I was afraid to open and see if it was broken, but luckily it came out fine.

Other Thoughts: UPS, go play in traffic; seriously. Can't get a better deal for the price, but no, seriously, UPS go play in traffic; stop handling TVS like they're cardboard. K thanks.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat as a digital photo frame, not so great as a TV...

Pros: Amazing still photo quality
Rich, deep colors
Excellent contrast
Native USB port supports use as a digital photo frame
No video blur/smear despite only 60 Hz refresh rate
GREAT value for the price

Cons: Quality is substandard with video (as opposed to stills)

Other Thoughts: We wanted to have two LCD monitors acting as photo frames on a big wall. A 42 incher for ~$360 seemed like a deal, so we purchased a first one as an experiment.

On arrival, we were thrilled to find its native USB connector and menu system made it very easy to set up a slideshow. No other hardware required, just plug in your thumbdrive and use the menu to start the show. It even has nice transitions and adjustable dwell time.

We also tried it as a television monitor, driven by our Philips DVR at 1080i via HDMI. We tested side by side with a CRT-based monitor. Sadly, with moving images the monitor suffers a bit. Adjust to eliminate blooming/oversaturation and the shadows go completely black. Adjust so shadows have the same definition as on the CRT, and the bright areas blindingly oversaturate.

I'd give it 5+ eggs as a digital photo frame, but only 3 as a TV monitor. Hence the 4 egg rating. We bought a 2nd unit and we're thrilled with them for slide shows, but for video look else

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the money

Pros: Price, 3 HDMI, VGA input, USB reader. The EQ and the srs surround is useful if you use the headphones out and connect external speakers, since the ones that already has are bad! Although its just 60Hz, there's no problem on watching TV even more than 3-4 hours a day.

Cons: Bad speakers. Need external ones, or audio output. Only 60Hz.

Other Thoughts: TV so far is pretty good. Image is fine, brightness, response and refresh rate (although 60Hz). I only used HD with my computer HDMI output and image was very good. I would definitely recommended because you cant really buy anything better at that price range. Definitely worth the money, minus just 1 star for the speakers and 60 Hz.
