    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    I wouldn't assume that it was wetness. I've had a regular tv on a screen porch and a friend has had one on a wall exposed to the elements a with bbq grill cover on it for many years.

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    I also vote for a regular tv. We had a 42" insignia tv in the gazebo, for 3 years (but only used during season). No issues. At all. The only thing I'd recommend is get a cover like this and use when tv is not in use.

    I miss those days of mounting plasmas. Still no set can match a pioneer elite but I donít miss the weight. My 60 inch elite weighs 207 lbs. a beast to mount. We just moved it downstairs for my kids to use for gaming and my brother in law hung up on me when I called him to help me move it again! Lol.

    He didnít complain when I called for him to help me mount the 27 lb 65 inch OLED though. Lol

    What if you don’t have a covered area to put your tv? We don’t have a covered area but I’m interested in having a tv near the pool.

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    I just mounted my 60” LG on my brick wall right under the eave next to pool on side of house. Totally exposed but I came across the TV shield and at first I didn’t think twice because of the price but really wanted this tv in that spot. The tv and shield together cost me about 2,000 but still better than buying a 60” outdoor tv. The tv is fully enclosed in this case and it even has built in fans that kick on when it gets hot Inside.

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    I've had my "standard" Samsung 55" outside for a full year now. Its under a covered patio and also bought one of these to put on it when not in use:

    So far so good.

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    we have installed samsungs outside in the northeast at countless covered patios and the owners don't take them in in the winter and we get 4 plus years out of them with no protection. its all good they can actually take a beating. i would never spend the money on an outdoor tv even at my costs.

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    Currently using two options. I didn't want to worry about theft/vandalism/weather so my options are mobile. 1- large wall 100" mounted screen and projector on rolling cart. Huge screen, great for parties/groups but not great for daylight and a bit cumbersome to setup/store. 2- 55" vizio on a rolling TV stand. Both options allow flexibility of location but require a few minutes of setup. With solid wifi/streaming device, wires and cabling are not necessary. Agree with jimim on costs of outdoor tv. If you're area is easily accessible to a cart, like mine- you might enjoy this.

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    Another vote for a standard TV. Ours is wall-mounted under a solid patio cover well out of the way of weather exposure. Going on 5 years now. I was advised to go this route by a professional A/V guy. I would have to go through about 8-10 comparable standard TVs to equal the cost of a dedicated weather-proof outdoor TV. Main issue you will have is viewability if TV is exposed to bright sunlight. This is where dedicated outdoor units shine. But if it is shielded from direct sunlight, you will be fine - especially for evening/nighttime viewing.

    Re: Outdoor TV help please

    Black Friday 50 inch special. I have had it outside for 3 years now mounted 8 feet up on the wall. Winter time I put a garbage bag over it just to seal out condensation. As long as its far enough under porch, a regular TV is fine. NO WAY would I pay the insane price for a "outdoor" TV. I paid $197 for my BF 50 inch... I could replace it like 2 dozen times for the price of an outdoor TV. Just make sure you have a GCFI outlet somewhere in that circuit just in case TV gets wet, itll pop the switch on the outlet and not someone touching the TV.

    fourhourses can you post a pic during the day? We have an old 60 inch plasma and it has a lot of glare during the day. Also can you post info on the antiglare screen as we would like to get one? Antiglare screens seem very expensive and I did not want to purchase one till I actually saw it in use. Thanks
