Hello, new here, did not see a search tab. I am looking for the brightest flat screen for outside use by the pool. Will be rolled out as needed and kept out of any weather. We have a TCL 65 inch that glares and not bright enough for outside. Any suggestions.

Outdoor rated TVs cost a lot more, most people think because they are 'outdoor rated', but in reality, they are built for use in direct sunlight which is what contributes so much to their high cost.

They can run 2 to 5 times brighter than indoor televisions!

Models from Seura, Skyvue, and Sunbright are not just designed to be weatherproof, but to actually perform in outdoor conditions.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I know about the outdoor brands but looking for a standard brand that makes a really bright TV.

I'm not sure what is out there which really is designed as a super bright television but not designed for outdoor use.

The Sony Master Series is supposed to be quite bright, but I've never seen one in person...

Recessed mount with a polarized filter? Recess may block out ambient light a bit better, allowing the backlighting to show better. Polarized filter to help avoid sunlight.

Maybe check what restaurants like Buffalo Wild Wings do on for their outdoor TV's? Most installations I've seen don't get direct sun, they are under some kind of porch/awning.
