3 out of 5 eggsGood, but slightly misleading

Pros: Good price and plenty of ports to hook up different systems, PCs, etc.

Has useful menu options for ratio control and a little bit of up-scaling control (I've seen better)

Cons: The TV can run things at 1080p, but turns out that it's native resolution is actually 1680x1050 and not true 1080p.

Which means your video quality can be really messy.

Running my PC through it at 1080 looks terrible, but running it 1050 looks great.

Had a few problems with PS3 games as well, with them looking a lot better in 720p

Other Thoughts: Good price for a TV of this size, but do realize there are better products and that this is best used in 1050p not 1080p.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV

Pros: Great TV for a cheap price! First flatscreen TV I've ever bought and it was a great choice for the money, you couldn't beat it!

Cons: Speakers are a little rattley since they're integrated into the casing, but that's not a big deal. Also are the ports are on the side of the TV, which is great for accessibility but looks absolutely horrible if you care about hiding cables.

Other Thoughts: My father bought me a similar model for Chirstmas that has the ports behind the TV, facing downward, for the same amount of money by the same company. Works just the same, may want to consider that one if you care about cables hanging out the side of your TV.

3 out of 5 eggsright side speaker issue

Pros: I have had this tv for almost a year. I use it as a monitor for my desktop. It still produces good picture quality.

Cons: the right side speakers are deffective and buzz loudly. You can compensate by using the balance feature in the audio settings, but you won't be able to hear the right side speakers. I had read the reviews and figured this would probably be an issue, but didn't really care because the price was so low.

Other Thoughts: good if you want a cheap tv with good picture quality, but don't care about sound at all (seriously the sound really sucks).

4 out of 5 eggsGood tv

Pros: Works well picture quality is good and you get a lot of screen for your money here.

Cons: Sound quality, especially with lower bass is not good, during really low bass the tv will just kinda vibrate and not do the sound it is supposed to.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid TV for the price

Pros: Was a little hesitant about a refurb, but have had no problems for six months now. The TV has multiple inputs and looks great. You won't find a 40" HDTV at a better price. I use it for netflix and live sports, and both look great on it.

Cons: The sound is subpar, as could be expected from a budget TV. A soundbar fixes that easily. Boot up time is a surprising 5-10 seconds, which while annoying isn't really a dealbreaker.

Other Thoughts: Probably one of the strongest 40" tvs at this price point, but you get what you pay for. I'm very happy with it.

5 out of 5 eggsCompatability Problem

Pros: Good picture, easy setup. No complaints. However, see the cons...

Cons: I went through some serious troubleshooting on my own, repeated the same steps with new egg, and had the Dish guys out on many occasions changing everything out between the satellite and this TV, all in a vain attempt to solve an intermittent audio issue where the sound would suddenly turn into a repetitive, rapid pulsating sound. If I changed the channel and then returned it back to the same channel, it cleared up. Newegg was awesome about returning it for replacement but the replacement one did the same thing. I bought a different TV and it never has shown this problem as do none of the others in my house of other brands.

Conclusion: This TV is incompatible with Dish equipment. I use it as the center monitor of my PC display array and it works great as I'm sure it works well with cable or even DirectTV.

Other Thoughts: If you have Dish, I suggest avoiding this TV. Otherwise, it is awesome, especially for the price!

4 out of 5 eggsGood price. Nice pic

Pros: Pic looks fine. I'm using it as a 2nd TV to keep on the deck for football season. The video quality isn't as good as my Panasonic plasma but this is a good value for the price.

Cons: none really. it's better than I would expect for the price but don't expect it have video like a top of the line model.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for a year

Pros: Had this for over a year from Newegg. Never a problem. Do not try to adjust stand, it does not move. Got that advice before I bought it.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGood Budget TV

Pros: Price - It is very inexpensive for 1080p

Lifespan - Bought it 13 months ago and it is our main TV still working!

Cons: Speakers are as bad as everyone else claims, but we use a surround system and it isn't an issue for us.

Our harmony remote has issues turning the TV off when you shut off all devices, solved by walking over to the TV and hitting the off button.

Loading screen saying "Sceptre" for a few seconds before the picture kicks in. (Hey look everybody I bought a no name TV!)

Its been updated on Newegg now, but it claimed to be 40" when I purchased it. Now it says (40" class 38.5 Diag) Which was pretty misleading before, and still shady. Either its 40 or its not, in this case not.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a cheap 1080p TV I could mount on the wall and hook up with a surround and use a harmony remote to control everything, aside from not turning off sometimes with the universal remote all good.

I nitpicked a little with the cons but I just wanted to be as honest as possible. If I could go back and change my order I wouldn't. This is the best value I could find a year ago for a 1080p TV.
