I picked this up last month to use as my monitor for my PC. I love it and consider this to be the best 4K TV for a budget gamer looking to get the 4K experience. Of course, check to make sure your video card is beefy enough to drive it (I'm using a GTX 970).

Yes, it can do 4K @ 60hz and passes the chroma 4:4:4 test. No smart features makes this TV ideal for just PC use. I posted some pix comparing this TV to the LG 49" UF6430 and the sceptre TV is the way to go.

Walmart also has the 90 day return policy (includes TVs), so you can always return it if you don't like it for your setup.

EDIT: Some people are saying it's not true 4:4:4 that i'm seeing, even though my graphics card thinks it is 4:4:4 at 60 hz. I split the chroma test image between a legit 1080p computer monitor and this Sceptre 4K TV. The text looks very slightly grainier on the 4K TV than the 1080P monitor, but it is so close, my eyes don't notice it until i focus in, and even then, playing with sharpness/brightness/color, etc. could offset that as well. Bottom line, this is an amazing budget 4K TV for a monitor. I think it's definitely in the "good enough" range for PC's and gamers.

Wow, prices on 4k TVs are really dropping fast...I would hate to own inventory of these.

Seems like a great deal. Generic brand but good price.

Is this a better brand than Emerson? I took a shot on the 50" BF deal last year and it died a few days ago. Now I'm not sure if I trust generic brand tvs.

i think they are both value options. sceptre seems like it might actually be more popular. good luck either way Smilie

You find stories like that even on brand name sets.

More details specs here [sceptre.com]. Been holding out for 48-50" Vizio M series or Samsung 6400, but think I may pull the trigger on this instead. 4k w/ 4:4:4 support, 4x HDMI + ARC, 1x USB for <$400 seems solid to me, even if a generic brand. Optional 3yr protection plan for $36 and 90 return to Walmart if something better comes out between now and the Superbowl. Get it now, get better one in a couple years, turn into monitor. Someone please talk me out of it before I pull the trigger...

Also ref comments from previous deal w/ same pricing from previous deal.

It can probably do 120hz, as long as it isn't trying to create and interpolate frames in a "motion plus" kind of feature. If it is just repeating the same frame multiple times or inserting blanks in between I don't see why it couldn't be 120hz.

Grabbed it. Hard to argue with the walmart return policy (and ease) but hate paying sales tax.

I've had a 1080p Sceptre in 38.5 for a few years that has treated me very well, so willing to give them another shot.

With 3 year warranty and tax came out to just above $400. Certainly the cheapest 50ish" tv that can pass chroma.

Also, the speakers are terrible on these Sceptre tvs. Plan on getting something else to help.
