Looking to purchase a TV for gaming, anyone familiar with this one?

#1Famished_CorpsePosted 10/6/2013 3:13:02 PM
I'm looking to purchase a new TV for gaming, that will also be used for frequent movie watching and the occasional television program. While shopping around, I came across a brand called "Sceptre" that I have never heard of before. Is anyone familiar with this brand, and if so, what do you think of them?

The particular TV I'm looking at is this one:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sceptre-40-Class-38.5-viewable-LCD-1080p-60Hz-HDTV-X409BV-FHD/19793651#Q%26A+Exchange

Anyone have any experience with it? See anything wrong with it?

Thanks for any input.

I'm going to assume that the two replies above are because of the fact that there is something wrong with the TV itself(or a bad brand), or the 2nd poster is trolling or trying to derail it for w/e reason.

I had a 32" Sceptre as my first lcd several years ago. A fuse blew or something and it started smoking. Trash.

I play on a RCA 26" HDTV so I can say that's a good HDTV to use.

Why so serious....


On topic I have no clue about the tv. But by calling out to archizzy will help bring him here for some great advise.
