Have you ever tried watching the Superbowl or a World Cup final on your TV indoors? It’s not really that fun, is it? When you’re having a party with your friends coming over to watch the game, you want it out in the yard so you can have some BBQ and beer, surrounded by fresh air. Now if you want to watch TV outside your home, you really need to get the SunBriteTV Pro Series Direct-Sun Outdoor TV SB-4217HD.
Features of the SunBriteTV SB-4217HD
When you’re outdoors, watching a game on an LED TV can be a problem. With the bright sunlight you would have to deal with screen reflection and glare. Since most LED TVs are designed for indoors, what you’ll get on a regular LED TV is a substandard picture quality filled with washed-out colors and dreadful contrast. You’ll also have to deal with the environmental concerns, including the UV rays that can damage a TV screen.
And that’s where the SunBriteTV SB-4217HD comes in. This 42-inch TV is specifically designed for outdoor use. Its peak brightness (700 cd/m2 brightness level) is twice as bright as what you get from other HDTVs. The color accuracy is impressive, and the imagery is very sharp. Even gaming action is smooth. Even with the bright sun shining down on it, the colors don’t look washed-out at all.
The viewing angle is wide enough to accommodate a large number of viewers, and even from an extreme angle there’s no luminance reduction or color shift. Even the sound quality is above average, with a loud volume with bass and an audio output that’s clean and free from distortion.
It’s even weatherproof so that it can be used outdoors year-round, which is a true marvel. That’s because it comes in an aluminum cabinet that protects the TV from temperatures ranging from 22 degrees F to 140 degrees F. It’s also protected from the salt air, insects, rain, and dust. With its Enhanced Solar Tolerance technology, you don’t get the black spots on screen when the LCD panels become too hot. To help against glare, the screen also comes with a semi-gloss coating.
Pros and Cons
This is the best TV you’ll ever find for outdoor use in any season. It really helps with your yard party, and you can enjoy all the action with your friends, neighbors, and family.
For large crowds though, a bigger screen may be a better choice. And you also have to contend with some rather glaringly absent features. You won’t have Ethernet connectivity, and there are no smart features and Web services. You only have 2 HDMI ports, and a single USB port.
You have to deal with its rather high price and even your electricity bills may see a slight increase. With its brightness levels, it will consume 108 watts of power.
If you don’t like to be cooped up indoors all the time or if you need a TV for your business, the SunBriteTV SB-4217HD is just about perfect. It looks great outdoors as it is indoors. This is the TV you want when an important game is on and you’re all outside watching with bated breath. If you can afford it, buy it!
