The designer of this product made something really wonderful. There’s tiny attention to detail in materials choices, packaging. Some artistic, some functional.
For example, the plastic cover which protects the screen is taped on. They picked that tape carefully, and I can tell because it firmly held the cover in place, but when I accidentally stuck the tape to the screen it pulled away easily without leaving any glue behind. It’s highly functional and intuitive. I am very happy with this monitor.
On function: Unlike monitors I’ve used before where plugs are inserted vertically, the HDMI ports are horizontal which makes it at least 20x easier to manage plugs. The power supply uses a smaller cord which is way easier to hide. The monitor and mount are very light weight. This monitor came with screws and a proper fitting to install the monitor on a wall bracket or arm.
Drawback: the HDMI cable which comes with the monitor is short(ish). If you expect to use this cable double check the length. I had a nice one already so problem solved.
You definitely get what you pay for, but I think this monitor is okay for what I wanted it for (a 2nd monitor to read news or check something out while playing a game or a movie on the main screen.
-Nice and thin
-I don’t seem to have any dead pixels.
-monitor flickers or temporarily goes blank if you move it any distance (bad connection on the HDMI port, but fine if you leave it alone. If it’s a real problem, you can try the other HDMI port.
-Screen isn’t wonderful. If I look at it closely, you can see the pixels on the screen and around the edges of letters.
-Feels plasticky — you notice it when using the menu buttons.
Overall, if bought at a good price, it will probably serve you well, but I wouldn’t use it for a main display.
Al principio sentía que carecía de brillo pero me acostumbre, las imágenes se ven muy bien, la frecuencia de actualización es de 74.973 Hz con windows, el modelo que me mandaron no coincide con la descripción pero creo que es mejor, recibí el E248W-19203RT, y otra cosa importante es que es de 24″ contando el marco por lo que da 23.85″ de pantalla en realidad, una ultima cosa es que las bocinas no son buenas, es buena opción si utilizaras más tus auriculares u otra bocina ya que estas ofrecen una calidad pobre como si de un dispositivo movil se tratara.
I bought this on January 1st but I got faster shipping so it came a day after, I’ve been using it ever since and it hasn’t given me any problems.. at first I was a little skeptical about buying it because I saw some reviews before hand that upon arrival it wouldn’t turn on or the screen would be blinking black which made me kind of questionable about using. I’ve been using it for a little over a week and it hasn’t given me any problems at all, I use it for my PS5 and it runs perfectly with no delay, I’m planning to buy their 20 inch for a secondary monitor in a few days since I was satisfied with this product.
I have had this monitor for only a few days, and I am not very impressed with it. The monitor control buttons being in the back where you have to blindly feel for them and just remember which one is which is a terrible design. All of my other monitors have the buttons under the front edge where they are so much easier to use. Having two HDMI inputs is nice, but the actual steps to switch between inputs are cumbersome, and the speed to switch screens is slow. Not a big deal for the occasional change, but if you want to switch between inputs frequently while sitting at your desk, this is not a good monitor.
The worst thing MAY be the speakers — they are absolute garbage in both sound quality and volume (but see the last paragraph about the screen flashing on and off). Turning up the volume in system settings on the monitor does absolutely nothing to increase the sound at any setting above 50%. What you can hear sounds like a 20-year old laptop sitting on the floor of a school bathroom — tiny, echo-y, and very hard to understand. I have several other monitors with built-in speakers, and these are by far the worst I have every heard. The other monitor sitting next to this one sounds absolutely fantastic by comparison. I have good speakers on my desk, but I was hoping to get rid of them to save some space — no way with this monitor!
The picture quality seems decent — sitting side-by-side with a much older HP monitor of the same size and definition, both displays seem similar in brightness and color accuracy on an average browser window, but when comparing a screen with lots of high-contrast dark and light, this monitor is very washed out. I have tried adjusting picture and color settings, and nothing improves the lack of a good black and poor contrast. In fact, increasing the contrast setting just makes the blacks even MORE gray!
But I am quite worried about the reliability.
I set this up yesterday and left it on with the laptop in sleep mode all night — I didn’t make any setting adjustments. This morning the laptop woke fine and the monitor came on as expected, but as soon as I reached around the side of the monitor to find the control buttons, the monitor started flashing on and off, like a light with a loose or broken wire. When I pulled my hand back, it was fine, but I could not touch the monitor at all without it flashing on and off. The power light was not going on and off, so it was not that, and I tried changing the input to both HDMI ports with no difference. Once I opened up the OSD, the flashing stopped as long as the OSD was up, but started again when I hit the Exit button. After about 15 minutes of playing with the settings, I noticed that the monitor was no longer showing the problems when I touched it. And it seems to still be working normally about an hour later. But I am extremely worried about what was causing this issue, and how long it will be before it starts again. If I wiggle the HDMI cable on the back of the monitor, it sometimes blanks out (but no where near as touchy as it was in the beginning), so I guess the fault is there and I will have to return the unit. What a pain.

I have bought sceptre monitors in the past, and I stand by them as a great budget monitor company if you want something that’s reliable and inexpensive. I purchased these monitors as secondary monitors and vertical monitors for my setup. From my experience, I knew that these monitors would be good for work other than gaming, so I primarily use them for watching videos, discord, or just as an extra screen for when I am doing work. I overall enjoy these monitors, but I have two major issues that I had first when I got them.
I love the monitors, and they could be a 5-star product if they tweaked a couple of things. I will talk first about the main advantages of the monitors first. Firstly, for $150, you are getting a monitor with decent viewing angles and a good size with 75hz refresh rate viewing. For the price, it is a very good monitor alone for office or schoolwork. It does its job very well and anybody who is doing basic work or maybe some console gaming would have a good experience with these monitors. Furthermore, they are VESA mount* (more on that below), and it has a good display, with a speaker that although quiet, does the job well without sounding blown out. Overall, it is a good monitor, and anybody who wants something basic will enjoy this monitor.
Here are the cons from my experience, as it had a couple off the start. I first opened the box to find that it talks about its return policy on the box. This was extremely concerning since it is almost impossible to send this monitor back. Please keep everything (including box and packaging materials) for the first month you own the monitor. The second issue I had was the mounting brackets you get with the monitor. For one thing, the monitor uses a separate monitor arm, that is screwed into a bracket that comes out of the monitor. If you plan on not using any desk mounts or VESA mounting, then you will have no problem with this monitor. However, I wanted to mount this monitor to a VESA desk mount to use as a vertical monitor. My first issue came when I tried to mount the monitor, when I tried to mount the monitor to the arm by screwing in the screws provided with the arm. The first issue comes with the hardware included with the monitor, there are four standoffs and two monitor screws, but the arm needed four screws, so we already are set back. I found some old monitor screws that fit, and when I mounted the monitor, I realized that the monitor wouldn’t fit due to the bracket secured on the back, which sticks out of the monitor to make more viewing angles. Again, this won’t be an issue for those who are planning on not using any VESA mounting, however, it makes the process a lot more difficult for those who are planning on doing any mounting of their monitor with a third party device. It took me like 20 minutes before I realized that the standoffs that are included are for VESA mounting, which although makes some sense, also makes me question why to include the mounting bracket externally when it could have been included inside of the monitor since there is a cutout section that fits it.
I see this question a lot, and I feel that I should address it here for those who want to game on this monitor: get a different monitor. First, this monitor is a 75hz 5ms, meaning it refreshes the screen 75 times in one second, and it responds 5ms after the information has been sent by the PC. There are plenty of 144hz monitors with a 1ms response time for this price, and I recommend that you look for something at that price. If you want something to game on for the long run, get a 144hz monitor at the same price, it’ll work better overall, and be around the same budget.
Overall I highly enjoy this monitor. I give it four stars since it works very well for what I need it to do, and although it has its flaws I wouldn’t want another monitor. It could have been five stars, only if the price was a little bit cheaper. The price does go up with the blue light shift that occurs, but the $133 option is still a little overpriced, I would personally price this around $115 and it would be the ultimate monitor for the price. Overall, if you want a monitor for office work, then please consider this, it’s a great monitor.
this thing is really good and is funny how no one is really talking about it but i guess is cause their not LG
on older pcs there this really annoying thing where on my 1000$ 2020 IPS monitor video’s look bad and have ghosting. on this they look smooth and clean. games also run just as good as my expensive monitor even has adaptive sync. for under 200$ this thing is king strong recommend. NOTE: the down side of this monitor is the speakers sound like they were pulled from headphones and slapped on the back their really bad but aside from that great product..
The first one I bought, picture started jumping very shortly afterwards. Support said the unit needed to be replaced.
Exchanged for a new one through Amazon returns in March, less than 3 months later the new replacement is also doing the same thing.
The internal components must be of pretty poor quality. Now I’m passed the return window with Amazon, and to return to the manufacturer they want me to pay for shipping to California. If you’re going to sell something in Canada, give me an option to return it in Canada. International shipping is going to cost almost as much as what I paid for the monitor.
Piece of junk, pay for a brand name you recognize, and can actually return if you have a problem.

I’ve owned a Sceptre 4K 55» TV for about 4 years and I’m happy with it. So when I needed a monitor it was one of the brands I looked at. I bought this a couple of months ago and never regretted it. I use it on my desktop, so 1080p was fine for me. Being a smaller screen than the 55 inch, to me it looks just as good. Adding in the price, you can’t beat it. It was a easy setup, with the controls on the bottom right. The stand was a snap to install. The only downside to this. is the speakers. Their mounted in the back and throw the sound out that way. They could of at least had them throw the sound downward onto the top of the desk. I tried a test using some paper clip boxes taped to back of the monitor and it worked! Still like all build-in TV or monitor speakers, they aren’t great sounding. Your better off with some 2.1 sound system. Considering the picture quality, easy setup and price this is worthy buy for anyone.
