Cheap, but sceptre is a bargain bin brand, lowest of the low tied with most store house generic brands.

But unlike say ONN (walmart) this has no smart features, ONN has roku, which is either a pro or a con. Upside because built-in smart features on budget TVs usually lag and suck, but the downside is just buying a 4k roku device is minimum $30, and the actual best smart boxes are over $100, so $150 might quickly be $180+ for most people, unless you have a smart box you arent using.

I have been looking for a TV in this size, I don't need any smart features as I will use fire stick or whatever on it. Is this a good overall TV? I might run HDMI cable to it from my receiver and use the second hdmi out to it. Any feedback will be appreciated.

About 9 years ago I paid $1000 for my LG 3D plasma and $300 for the 5 year warranty. I drove it home in my $1000 truck. It was hit by a surge that took out my cable box a couple years ago and one of the HDMI ports, but it's still going strong.

I'm thinking of upgrading just so I can use it for a monitor, because I still get some image retention. I don't like the picture quality of these cheaper TVs. Even the 4k Vizio my mom's boyfriend bought doesn't look as good as my older LG plasma. Low light picture is poor and the Chromecast is slow and will cut out during videos. I recommend Samsung, LG and Sony if you're picky about picture quality.

I'd stay away from Scepter, Insignia, Westinghouse, RCA and Toshiba. They use lesser components and I would rather pay the extra for good quality. If it's for your kids or a gift, sure, I don't think it's a bad place to start, but I couldn't go long term with this.

That's my opinion. I worked for Vann's Appliance and set up their floor model electronics just working in the warehouse. I've probably set up a couple hundred TVs. I got to see one of the first OLED TVs from Sony and the ultrathin Samsung TVs when they first came out. I've seen some great looking TVs in my day, so I can't go back to something like this. I've also rocked the 13" TV with speakers bigger than the TV, back in college. I have pictures. It's pretty funny. This would be a step up from that. I mean, I paid $150 for a 15" CRT computer monitor back in the day. This is better than that.

I got a little bit excited but a soon as I started reading reviews, it all went away. Walmart lists the regular price as being $350 but it is closer to $180. Not that great of a discount but at $150 it still seemed like a pretty good deal. Unfortunately, there are enough very unsatisfied customers with detailed reviews of all of the many issues that it didn't take long for me to be quickly turned off. Seems like you would be better off buying a quality 1080p TV at this size than a poor excuse for a 4K model.

High end Plasma picture quality is hard to beat, but their big thing is weird requirements on how to handle and transport, high heat generation, and it is lower power usuage only when compared to a CRT. If I were you, I would be looking for a high refresh rate UHD HDR TV. With the proper media source, it will blow the pants off a plasma when you see the video in 120 or 240hz. You realize how much your brain fills in the frame ratw gaps. It looks weird, but only because your brain isn't used to it.

Went through reviews and manual, my quick summary:

- Speakers aren't great. They usually aren't for most of these TVs, and at this price, I would lower expectations a bit further.

- Yellow colors seem to be a challenge with this TV, with several comments that you can try and adjust in the Service Menu, but the settings do not save.

- The manual states this has a native 1200:1 contrast ratio, which is pretty bad.

- There is some question whether this TV will upconvert to 4k, seems that default is show at incoming resolution unless you edit in Service Menu, but setting won't stick.

Basically, all the feedback seems consistent with a TV trying to hit an ultra low price point. There is nothing wrong with that, but expectations should be kept low.

I wouldn't consider this so much a bargain as more of a good consideration if you want a cheap TV in garage, shed, or possibly a guest bedroom that is not often used .
