slim tvs – Sceptre 2017

The Sceptre E195BV-SHD is a 19-inch slim LED TV that is 1.88 inches thick without its stand. It is also 17.88 inches tall and 11.13 inches wide and weighs 5.29 pounds without its stand. Since this TV is slim and lightweight, you can easily move it around the house or office. It is small enough to fit in a kitchen or bedroom.

With a peak power consumption of 30 watts, this Sceptre model is an energy-efficient HDTV, and it carries an Energy Star certification. Ports include two HDMI ports and a USB port. It also has a composite video input as well as cable, S-video and VGA inputs. All the ports on this slim TV are located at the back where they face the side and are conveniently accessible, even when the TV mounted on the wall. However, you can find slimmer HDTVs with more HDMI and USB ports than this Sceptre TV. In addition, it also lacks an Ethernet port and wireless capabilities. Although it comes with a stand, you cannot adjust the height of the TV on its stand or tilt or swivel it.

The 19-inch LED LCD panel has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, making it a 720p HDTV. Its pictures may not look as sharp as full 1080p HD or UHD would on larger TVs, but 720p looks just as good as any resolution on 19-inch TVs. The display has a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a maximum viewing angle of 170 degrees. With an aspect ratio of 16:9, the Sceptre E195BV-SHD qualifies as a widescreen TV. This slim TV has a built-in digital tuner, and you can connect a wide variety of home entertainment appliances to it, including Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, media streamers and game consoles.

The Sceptre E195BV-SHD has a brightness rating of 250 candelas per square meter, which is typical of LCD displays. Its 60Hz refresh rate is good enough for most videos except sports broadcasts and action movies. Discerning viewers will notice short bursts of blur during fast-moving scenes. There is a pair of 3-watt speakers, but a 6-watt audio output is pretty paltry even for a slim TV, so you may have to get a home theater system or sound bar to make this HDTV sound better.

Overall, the Sceptre E195BV-SHD is a well-featured, inexpensive slim LED TV. It may not sound loud, have wide viewing angles or come with built-in Wi-Fi, but it is a decent slim HDTV for an office and easily doubles as a computer monitor.
