Is Sceptre/Sharp a reliable TV brand?

DVA
 Share

Hey guys, my wife and I are shopping for a 4k 55"-65" TV. She is adamant on brands like Samsung, LG, and Sony. 

 

I am going to try to sway her towards looking at other brands since they offer the same specs, but with a lesser known brand. 

 

I will NEVER purchase a VIZIO TV, they have been known to crap out right after their warranty date and it that exact thing happened to my mom's TV.

 

So anyway, does anyone know if Sceptre and Sharp are reliable in the TV department? I have seen mixed reviews from Sceptre's monitors, but their TV ratings seem to be fine. Sharp also seems to be doing just fine.

 

I just want to know things like, does the quality in image rendering drop with time quicker with these brands vs their counterparts such as Samsung or LG. Is the cheaper material a noticeable thing, does their "smart" capability fall short in some way, etc. Questions like those. 

 

Thanks for any help guys and gals.

Sharp are pretty good. I don't know about Sceptre but Sharp are usually pretty good quality and give good picture quality. Hisense is also quite good too.

Thanks for the reply, I wish a few more people would respond to help me out on the matter =P

I've trusted Sharp as far as their smaller products go, but I've never bought anything too expensive from them.

That's no problem haha ?  

I've had a couple of Sharp TVs and they've always been good quality. Sharp are a Japanese brand so I'm pretty trustworthy that the products will last a while.

I'd also consider Hisense. My parents have 2 Hisense TVs, one 65 inch and one 55 inch. They're great quality and have pretty nice picture quality.

Sharp are decent. Or at least they were.

Why don't you want to go for the major brands? They usually see steep discounts during Black Friday. Are you really saving that much with a lower tier?

Well it wasn't so much of a money issue, I suppose I was just going for a lesser known brand to up the size. 

example: a 60" LG or Samsung being the same price as a 65" Sharp. Stuff like that. 

 

That and I was also just curious as to where their build quality stands.

I really, really recommend seeing them in person. Panel quality can change vastly from brand to brand, as well as how they're calibrated; I wouldn't want a 65" TV I hate the look of over a 60" TV that has calibration I like a lot more.
