Sceptre X420BV-FHD 42-inch LCD TV

Sceptre revealed a new wall mountable, swiveling 42-inch LCD HDTV in a stylish glossy finish. Inspired by the four "E"s – exquisite design, efficiency, economical and environmentally-friendly - this 42-inch 1080p LCD HDTV impresses by incorporating features found in more expensive displays. This simple yet elegant TV features a curved front frame, crystal clear display, stunning imagery and sleek design, boasting 1.06 billion display colors for a broader range of distinct colors and a more vivid/realistic viewing experience. Plus, the 1080p widescreen resolution creates sharper, clearer images, which will not cost you a fortune.

Plus, it has a rapid 5ms response time and comes with SPDIF digital audio output, an all in one ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner and 3 HDMI ports for added functionality. These added HDMI ports allow users to connect various peripherals, including Blu-ray players, personal computers, AV receivers and video game consoles. The embedded VGA port makes transitioning from TV to PC monitor quick and easy.

This large widescreen display is the perfect addition to any home or public entertainment room – or anywhere you want to watch your favorite movies or TV shows. It also can function as signage for company display, though we haven't seen too many Sceptre TVs used in this manner.
