Sceptre isn’t one of the most recognizable names in TVs but, then again, neither was Vizio during its formative years — and now look where that company is. It may not be long until Sceptre grabs enough mind-share to resonate well with the public, though. Its latest TV offering brings the performance and slim cabinetry of LED backlighting to consumers at an incredibly low price and, the company claims, without sacrificing quality.
The E325BV-HD has three HDMI inputs and supports USB, VGA, Component Video, Composite video and, yes, even S-Video inputs as well.
Other specs include a 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (compared to 3,000:1 on Sceptre’s comparable CFL-backlit LCD model) a 6.5ms response time and 1366 x 768 resolution.
The E325BV-HD is also one of the “greener” TVs out there as well. Sceptre estimates annual energy consumption costs will be in the neighborhood of $11, thereby adding significantly to this set’s value proposition.
