Great monitor for my bedroom battlestation. The monitor I received had no dead/stuck pixels or backlight bleed. Initially, I noticed lots of pixel smearing while gaming but after about a half an hour or so, the smearing seems to have disappeared. I ensure that overdrive was enabled just to be safe. It seems that within a half an hour of waking/turning the monitor on, the panel will smear contrasting colors when there is heavy on-screen movement (gaming, videos, etc.) but smearing is minimized after warming up. I can live with that.

The colors are bright and accurate after I used my DataColor Spyder5 Pro to calibrate the colors and gamma. Most monitor's brightness is set too high at factory settings and this can quickly fatigue your eyes, along with over-emphasized blues. I would highly recommend calibrating monitors for brightness and color accuracy. I bought my Spyder5 Pro on eBay, used for $150. This may seem expensive but I have many monitors in my home that I have calibrated with this one time purchase. Best Buy offers an in-home service at the same price for only an hour of their time.

Okay lets get this straight, you're buying a gaming monitor for under 200 dollars, so don't expect all the bells and whistles... Well having said that, this is a pretty darn good panel for the price and the performance. I haven't color calibrated everything to my liking yet so I will most likely write another review later on. Having bought monitors from Sceptre before I can honestly say they are solid and deliver what you can expect from a company that has a stable history in selling computer screens. Out of the box which was pretty impressively packed came the monitor stand, instant liking to the matte black metal which feels sturdy right from the get go. All screws were provided for the mount and the base, and were easy to assemble with the provided screw driver, Sceptre you get big points for this because sometimes you just can't find the right screw driver or maybe some folks just don't have one at all. So kudos to you. Now onto the panel, which was lovingly wrapped with a fun screen protector that is always fun to peel, c'mon you have to love the peel. So getting everything together was a snap and although a little wobbly if you accidentally hit the sides of the screen, well it's going to happen with these types of stands, so not much worries because it will hold up the screen and durably so. When turning on the screen it went right to the brilliantly red Sceptre text and there was my computer, icons all over the place but then again I had the much smaller and much cheaper Sceptre 20" 75Hz screen which did the job until I forked over the cash for this beast. So after some tweaks to icons, color settings and so on I finally found the somewhat comfort zone with this panel, which is still an adventure but gaming is a beast on this thing. Remember to set Freesync to ON in your monitor settings and graphics settings, via windows and your graphics software. Make sure you select 144Hz using the display port(Recommended) or HDMI 1. Then you're ready to game and this screen was meant for exactly that. I would never go back to 60Hz or my previous 75Hz just because, well you will have to buy one to find out. And for aesthetics I never noticed the LED back lit Red S insignia on the rear of the panel. Pretty sharp Sceptre, pretty sharp, now make the next one in RGB. So in a nutshell, great monitor, great price to performance on a budget and style that can fit any setup all the way around.

Good monitor so far aside from the attached image. Seems the visible screen doesn't extend to the bezel. Not sure if it's a fluke or what. Comment if you see the same or different. Thanks

Edit: discussed with Sceptre, monitor is correct. Don't even notice the screen bezel when using. Excellent monitor.

I just got this monitor today and it went up and running with out any problems I currently have it set to 122hz but it can run 144hz. The stand is good quality And the price for this is awesome. It is only the first day though so only time will tell if it will hold up. It also came with zero dead pixels from what I can tell. I personally think 1080p nowadays for 24 inches is pushing it though. If you have the money and your system can run it go for a 2k monitor.

I had originally bought the 75hz version of the monitor and was underwhelmed. I then noticed this particular model at 144hz and supporting AMD Freesync for more or less the same price. Returned old one, got this one. All in all the Monitor is really good, but I wont say great. Setup is about what youd expect for a monitor, picture quality is good, a tad on the fuzzy side though. The AMD FreeSync works great I will say. Toggled it on and was able to crank the settings I normally would have had to turn down.

I loved it I ordered 2 of these at once just to try something new I had a 32 inch Emerson tv and decided maybe it’s time to change my setup omg they are so amazing the color accuracies the picture quality it’s the best I’ve seen for the price I’ve also looked at Samsung monitors that friends of mine had and they looked identical so for the bang for you buck I highly recommend these

I am coming off of an 8 year old Viewsonic monitor, so I may not be the best judge for cutting edge monitors, but as far as my needs go (occasional gaming; Apex, League) this monitor really fit the bill. Lightweight, works great with my desk mount. 144 Hz works via displayport or HDMI. Looks sleek, and I like how the ports on the back are clearly marked and easily accessible.

Glad I went with this monitor vs the other ones in its bracket (which for a $50-100 increase, don't seem quite worth it). Now if this monitor lasts as long as my old one, I'll be sticking with Sceptre for a long time.

At the price this monitor sales for I expected some form of compromise. Rather in looks, quality, or performance. However, I was not disappointed at all. Everyrhing is supurb from the casing to the super responsive screen.

I bought this monitor skeptical of whether it would preform well or not as I have never used scepter products. I was happy surprised with its performance. Although for it only being $170 there are draw backs such as no height adjustment but there is tilt adjust. Would recommend for anyone on a tighter budget.

Seems to work as advertised, great gaming monitor.
