Growing up, the idea of bringing a TV outside was something we had always wanted but were never allowed to do. Now that we find ourselves in the positions of our parents, it\u2019s easy to understand why: TVs just aren\u2019t meant to be outside ... unless, of course, they\u2019re specifically designed to be there.\u00a0 That\u2019s more or less the M.O. for SunBriteTV, a maker of all-weather LED-LCD TVs that\u2019s based in Thousand Oaks, California. They design TVs to withstand the elements and last outdoors all year long. It\u2019s an interesting premise, certainly, and one that proves to be useful in more situations than you might expect. We\u2019ll cover what it\u2019s like to buy one in the section below, but first let\u2019s talk about how SunBriteTV\u2019s series stack up.\u00a0 The most important thing to know is that SunBriteTV offers three series - Veranda, Signature and Pro - that correspond to where the TV is going to sit on your outdoor patio, deck or mounted to the side of your house.\u00a0 [Update: New for 2019, SunBriteTV is releasing a 75-inch version of the Veranda Series. Like the 43-, 55- and 65-inch versions, the TV will offer 4K HDR support and uses a direct-lit 400-nit panel. The TV will set you back $4,999, and is available now.] Image Credit: SunBriteTVSunBriteTV Veranda Series\u00a0 Rather than create a good, better and best series like other manufacturers, SunBrite\u2019s lineup starts with the full shade Veranda Series.\u00a0 This is the kind of TV that still sits outside, but should ideally be in the shade most of the time. According to SunBrite, the Veranda Series is about 50% brighter than your run-of-the-mill LED-LCD from Samsung, LG or Sony, but that\u2019s still not bright enough to resist the dulling effects or glare that occur when a TV sits in direct sunlight.\u00a0 In terms of resolution, all models the Veranda series supports 4K while the 55-inch model supports both 4K and HDR. The series comes in four screen sizes (43-, 55-, 65- and 75-inches) all of which are cheaper than an equivalent sized screen in the Signature or Pro series. Like the other series, the Veranda Series includes a weatherproof remote and weatherproof bay for a streaming player like the Roku Premiere, Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV Stick.\u00a0 Image Credit: SunBriteTVSunBriteTV Signature Series\u00a0 SunBriteTV\u2019s Signature Series serves a slightly different purpose: it\u2019s designed to sit in places that fluctuate between full sun and full shade, ideally in a spot that\u2019s partially sunny in the times that you\u2019d be outside watching TV.\u00a0 Unlike the Veranda Series, none of SunBrite\u2019s Signature Series have HDR - an important consideration if you\u2019re a cinephile - but, that said, the Signature Series is brighter than the Veranda Series and up to three times as bright as traditional LED-LCD screens from Samsung, Sony and LG.\u00a0 The trade-off here is that the Signature Series is more expensive: the 43-inch model starts at $2,799 and the 65-inch model will set you back nearly $8,000. Image Credit: SunBriteTVSunBriteTV Pro Series\u00a0 Last but not least is the SunBriteTV Pro Series, which, oddly enough, doesn\u2019t feature 4K at all. How it gets its Pro name isn\u2019t necessarily based on the picture quality, but rather, because it features an impact-resistant glass screen.\u00a0 Like the Signature Series, the Pro Series is outstandingly bright (around 1,000 nits according to SunBrite) and ready for whatever the outdoors has to throw at it. It\u2019s designed to sit in direct sunlight areas and is UV-resistant so performance won\u2019t diminish over time.\u00a0 In terms of audio quality, while the two other series use 20-watt down-firing speakers, the Pro Series ups the ante to a separate, detachable speaker bar.\u00a0 The Pro Series comes in four screen sizes from 32- up to 55-inches and range in price from $3,295 on the low-end to almost $6,000 on the 55-inch SB-5518HD.\u00a0 Image Credit: SunBriteTVShould I buy a SunBriteTV? \u00a0 If you frequently host soirees, own a hot tub where you want some extra entertainment or plan on spending a time outside during warm summer nights, a SunBriteTV is pretty much the only brand of TVs we\u2019d recommend.\u00a0 In fact, even in relatively enclosed spaces that are still subject to excessive moisture or heat, we\u2019d recommend a SunBriteTV as well. This might be a downstairs basement, partially enclosed sun room or garage, all of which would benefit from a little extra protection in case temperatures fluctuate.\u00a0 If there are drawbacks to the SunBriteTV lineup it\u2019s that AV enthusiasts might be nonplussed by the omission of HDR in all but one of the models, and budget buyers probably won\u2019t be able to afford much more than the 32- or 43-inch TV. At around $6,000 and up, it\u2019s prohibitively expensive to buy anything bigger than 55-inch screen unless you\u2019re looking to outfit a business or decorate a high-end property for a sale.\u00a0 SunBriteTV\u2019s biggest selling point is the peace of mind you get by buying a TV that was designed for the outdoors. You\u2019ll know that it can resist the elements (SunBriteTV claims they'll work at temperatures from -40 F up to 122 degrees), and was designed to be bright enough to overcome direct sunlight and glare - two things that indoor TVs were just never designed to do. That comes at a price, obviously, but for those willing to pay a bit more, it\u2019s one that feels justified.
