Built-In Speakers

Usually, you will have to purchase speakers and plug them into your computer. This takes up space and adds more cables to the equation. With the Sceptre, this will not be a problem. The monitor is actually equipped with built-in dual speakers. This addition will save you a little bit of money and space. The speakers have pretty good sound quality too!



Some monitors are limited regarding input. This isn’t an issue with the Sceptre. This monitor offers various input options, including DVI, VGA and HDMI. No matter what your desktop computer uses, you can guarantee that it’ll be compatible with this monitor!

Can Be Wall Mounted

If you’re interested in mounting your monitor to the wall, you’ll love this monitor. It is VESA wall mount ready. With the right tools and equipment, you’ll have this monitor mounted and ready to go without a matter of minutes.

Excellent Response Time

Some monitors are a little slow. The Sceptre is not. It has a response time of just 5 milliseconds. This guarantees that everything you do will be immediately transitioned to the monitor. This makes the monitor a great choice for gamers who want an edge over the competition.


There is no doubt that you’ll need to tilt your monitor at some point or another to get rid of the glare. The good news is that the Sceptre can be tilted forward and backwards. It offers 15 degrees of backward tilt and 5 degrees forward tilt. The ability to tilt the monitor ensures that you’ll always be able to find the perfect angle.


When you purchase the Sceptre monitor, you will be protected by a one-year limited warranty. The company is known to have excellent customer support. Should anything go wrong, you can sleep soundly knowing that the company will take care of it. If the monitor is used for commercial use, the warranty is limited to 90 days.

LED Is Great

This LED display is capable of providing the user with an abundance of rich colors. Moving images look great. 1600 by 900 resolution is also very impressive for the price. It ensures pretty good image quality and the picture is crystal clear. For the price, it is really hard to find another monitor that offers such good picture quality.

Energy Star

This monitor is Energy Star qualified. This means that it helps prevent greenhouse gas emissions by being more energy efficient. The monitor will consume far less energy in your home. In return, this will decrease your energy bill slightly. It is far cheaper to run all day and night than a monitor that isn’t Energy Star certified.
