Cheapest 55" I've seen in a while but NOT a smart TV (some of you may consider this a plus). Also terrible sound supposedly, probably best avoided without a sound bar or other sound system.

4x HDMI 2.0 (MHL/ARC/CEC)
1x Coaxial
1x YPbPr/AV
1x SPDIF
1x 3.5mm AUX/Headphone out
1x USB (music/pictures/firmware updates)
200x200 VESA

Had this model. Can confirm the sound is unlistenable. My Galaxy S9 on speaker mode was better. The picture was nice, though.

Got this in 2018 BF at this price and still using it works alright so far no issues. I don't have any audio passthrough setup but I believe it doesn't pass atmos.

I bought my Aunt a Sceptre a few years back, and it probably lasted 3 years. Then it developed some weird deal where it wouldn't power back on. I hope their newer TVs are better than that one was, because I'm pretty jaded on ever buying another one.

Just looking at the price history it's gone down to $220 in the past. So this is a decent price but not super hot. Debating if TCL 6 series which comes in around $400 is worth the premium.

I bought the non-HDR version of this several (five maybe six?) years ago and it's been solid. Spent a couple years as my main TV and now does bedroom duty. For the price you can't go wrong.

Can confirm the sound is pretty lousy. Sound bars are cheap.

filter and read the 1/2 star reviews ... which comprise 20% of the reviews.

Ugh.

The tcl 6 series is a great tv. And if you look through the old threads on it, it's a panel lottery to get a good one. I got lucky with my 65in 6 series a couple years ago and could not be happier with it.

Honestly, I have never seen this tv in real life, but I have had a 65" sceptre that I recently sold to a buddy.

I would file these tvs under good enough. I have not heard good speakers on any tv since tube tvs. If you are worried about sound there are many options you can do from a cheap class d amp and some bookshelf speakers or computer speakers to a receiver or sound bar. If you dont already have any of that stuff then you are overdue.

I think this link is to the same tv they are selling at Walmart, but I wish they were as specific about the products they sell as the manufacturer.

https://www.sceptre.com/TV/4K-UHD...ory73.html

I like that this tv is an IPS panel, has arc, has component for old school game systems, has cec, and has a line out. They sale a 55" sceptre with android, but it has a VA panel and is not as bright.

I have this from a couple years back. I got the extended warranty from Walmart but it has been good so far, recently upgraded the living room so this guy is in the game room now. I did have to return my first one due to a cluster of dead pixels out of the box.

I've had a Sceptre TV for 9 years. They always made a good monitor, so I decided to try their TV line. Never had a single problem.

I've had a TCL for a few months and it brings all sorts of weirdness and idiosyncrasies with it.

I'm guessing this is dead now? I am seeing $364 now.

Btw, if someone can share with me their email receipt, I'd be grateful. I need a warranty repair. Please PM me after you make sure your TV is fine.

Probably a blown capacitor. Super easy fix if you're capable of opening a TV and using a soldering iron
