    When Are Most New Sceptre TVs Released?

    We looked at the release dates for new Sceptre TVs over the last 2 years, but couldn't see any evident pattern. September was the biggest month last year for new Sceptre TVs, with 52 new Sceptre TVs released that month. In 2016 most new Sceptre TVs were released in January, with three new Sceptre TVs released that month.

    How Fast Do Sceptre TV Prices Drop After Release?

    Most televisions drop in price by 8% in the first 6 months after release, however Sceptre TVs tend to depreciate faster. New Sceptre televisions drop in price by an average of 17% in the first 6 months after they wer first released.
