Sceptre E275W-1920 Review

When considering a new purchase, the importance of price can’t be understated. And if you’re one who like me prefers to occasionally low-ball on your purchases, you’ll find the price tag on this monitor a miracle you always wanted. The Sceptre E275W-1920 is a well performing monitor with connections including DVI, VGA and HDMI. And for its price, you’ll definitely want to dig in.


Pros

  • Budget price
  • Comes with HDMI, VGA, DVI
  • Dual Speakers
  • VESA Wall Mount Ready
  • Fast 5ms response time

Cons

  • Stand isn’t ergonomic

Verdict

While the Sceptre E series E275W-1920 leaves a lot to be desired performance wise, it is a haven for the budget-minded looking for a sweet spot price. Additionally, you can bet the Full HD (1920 by 1080p) display, 5ms response rate, Aspect ratio and wide viewing angles make a solid petition in this case. So if you don’t mind the cut corners like lack of ergonomic support and visual clarity and precision, then this might just fit you right.

DESIGN AND FEATURES


Smooth, dark and clean are fair words to describe the Sceptre 22 Inch LED Full HD Monitor’s overall aesthetics. You’d expect poor build and structure from a low budget monitor, but fortunately this monitor is way above that. Running my fingers on the back side revealed a smooth flawless feeling, not that smooth. But hey, smooth nonetheless; nothing far off from regular ordinary monitors. Hands down for Sceptre on that front.

The left and right hand side of the bezel measures 7.2 inches and the full panel spans out to 20.4 inches wide. The whole monitor measures 20 x 7.2 x 14.7 inches and weighs a not-so-modest 8.7 pounds making it a tad heavier than most monitors.

PORTS


At the back is where you’ll find the ports; HDMI, VGA and DVI. Thankfully, they’re well positioned for easy access. Wall mounters, will be very pleased to find that this monitor supports VESA mounting. Sadly, the stand is not ergonomical so you won’t be able to adjust it which angle you desire. But with the oval base, the monitor has more stability and while it might not withstand an earthquake, it might pull off through at least a mild jostle.

Moving on to the display, gamers and movie buffs can enjoy stunning color and crystal clear views on the Full HD (1920×1080) resolution screen. The display is flat screen, and most people might enjoy it that way. We’ve had our fair share of curved monitors from Sceptre, like the recently reviewed SCEPTRE 27″ Curved LED C278W-1920R Monitor. The difference between the two is minimal, including the price tag which is nothing more than $20. Additionally, the Sceptre C278W-1920R offers a 1.78:1 aspect ratio and 5ms response time.


PERFORMANCE

The Sceptre E series E275W-1920 color accuracy is good, just not the best, but for the price it’s worth ignoring. On plain sight, the view is remarkable and shouldn’t present any problems for casual home users. You would only worry if you’re planning to use for detail.

Gamers and users search for deep, rich and well-saturated colors may be at a disadvantage with this monitor so we don’t recommend it. While it’s gray-scale performance is good, it doesn’t mange the same detail as what you’ll expect from a higg-end IPS panel such as the BenQ EW2777 HDR monitor.

Viewing angles are decent for this 27 inch monitor, with little color shifts at corners and angles. It comes with a 5,000,000:1 contract ratio which pretty okay for a monitor of its caliber and pricing. The display is Full HD and we had no qualms with the image quality. For gamers, however, you shouldn’t count much on this monitor for you triple A games. There is some lag and frame drops which isn’t exactly impressive or welcoming. Stick to the simple games.

Configurations

There are a couple of other options you can choose from. The choices vary depending on screen size: 22 inch, 24-inch and 27-inch monitors.

A Value Monitor for the Budget-Minded

Although its performance isn’t the most stellar and build quality isn’t the best, the Sceptre E Series E275W-1920 VI finds some success especially on pricing. It’s a splendid monitor to work with especially for general purposes and for the occasional TV show or movie. The 5ms response time also allows some light gaming, but for serious gamers there are better options.

For now, those on a budget can surely appreciate its low-basement price. Also check out the the BenQ GL2760H 27-inch Full HD Monitor which shares similar glory.
