Our take on the SunBriteTV® 3260HD

by Steve Kindig
SunBriteTV

SunBriteTVs play outside in every kind of weather

Here's a cool way to bring together two things we all love: watching TV and being outdoors. Instead of lugging a regular TV outside, finding a place to set it, and then keeping a close eye on the weather, you could have a TV that's designed to live outdoors. The 32" 3260HD is part of SunBriteTV's Signature Series, which offers most of the weather-proof features of their flagship Pro Series, but at significantly lower prices. Its rugged ASA outdoor-rated high-impact resin exterior resists heat, cold, and moisture. A multi-fan airflow system keeps the unit cool and dry in temperatures up to 122°F, and this TV will keep performing flawlessly even when the temperature dips to -24°F.

A weather-proof TV needs weather-proof connections

SunBriteTV has designed an innovative water-tight connection bay that keeps cables dry and simplifies hooking up your components. You'll find two HDMI inputs for high-def sources like a Blu-ray player and a cable or satellite TV box. There's a standard PC input for your computer, too. SunBriteTV really thought of everything — even the remote control is weather-proof.

Features

Outdoor All-Weather TV: The SunBriteTV outdoor LCD television has been designed to withstand the rigors of the outdoor environment and provide many years of optimum viewing. This TV can be permanently mounted outdoors. Its ASA outdoor rated high-impact resin exterior is engineered to protect internal components from rain, dust, insects, humidity, and salt air.

  • Weather-Proof Materials: Weather-proof materials are used in every component of SunBriteTVs. Stainless steel and galvanized metal parts are used throughout the TV to resist the corrosive effects of water and humidity.  Protective gaskets, stripping, and grommets are specially selected to resist the harmful effects of salt air and sunlight. All models utilize an innovative watertight cable entry system and cable pass-through design that protects the cables and inputs from the elements. Even the powerful built-in two-way 20-watt speakers are sealed against rain and moisture.
  • Internal Climate Control System: All SunBriteTV models are designed for permanent outdoor installation in extreme heat (up to 122°F) and cold weather (-24°F). The TVs feature an internal climate control system which consists of temperature sensors and a filtered multi-fan airflow system that quietly keeps the unit cool to provide protection and long-life to the internal components.

Anti-Glare Bright LCD Panels: The SunBriteTV outdoor television features an anti-glare LCD panel. Ever try to watch an indoor TV with the sun streaming through a window? If you sit close enough to the screen you can often see your reflection-like looking in a mirror. This is because most indoor TVs have a high gloss finish that enhances color performance. In the bright light of the outdoors, this reflective effect of the screen is greatly multiplied making it a challenge to see any picture at all.  That's why SunBriteTV outdoor TVs are equipped with LCD panels that have a high haze factor that help absorb the ambient light, making them resistant to this glare.

HDTV Tuner: The outdoor LCD TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

720p Resolution: The SunBriteTV outdoor LCD television has a display resolution of 1366 x 768. All of the television's video inputs are displayed at 720p.

Video Inputs: The SunBriteTV outdoor television is equipped with high-definition (HDMI/Component) and standard-definition (Composite/S-video) video inputs.

  • HDMI: The two HDMI inputs can be used to connect a DVD player, Blu-ray player, or Satellite/Cable box with an HDMI output. The HDMI jack will accept 1080i, 720p, and 480i/p video signals.
  • Component Video: The two Component Video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p, and 480i/p signals.
  • Composite Video: The TV is also equipped with a composite video input  (480i only).
  • S-Video: In addition, the TV is equipped with an S-video input (480i only).
Note: The TV's composite and S-video in put share the same stereo audio input.

PC Compatible: A 15-pin HD15 jack allows you to connect your personal computer to the display. There is also a corresponding stereo mini-jack (3.5mm) for the computer's audio signal. The PC input can accept up to a 1920 x 1080 signal (will only display up to 1366 x 768). The TV's HDMI inputs can also be used to connect your computer.

Audio Outputs: The SunBriteTV outdoor television offers analog and digital audio outputs.

  • Analog Output (variable): The TV's 3.5mm analog audio output is used to connect your home theater receiver or soundbar system. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (119MCON2M, sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminal will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs.
  • Digital Audio Output: A coaxial digital output is provided to allow you to connect the unit to a surround processor. The TV's digital audio output terminal outputs a Dolby Digital or 2-channel down-mixed PCM signal for use with an external Dolby Digital decoder or other external audio system with an digital audio input.

Picture Settings: This menu changes the picture settings for all of the television inputs.

  • Picture Mode: Contrast, Brightness, Color, & Sharpness
  • Advanced Video controls: Color Temperature, Zoom Mode, Noise Reduction & Adaptive Contrast.

Audio Settings: This menu manages the audio settings; such as Bass, Treble, Balance, AVC (Automatic Volume Control), Digital Output, and Audio Language (En/Fr/Sp).

Parental Control: You can select a viewing limitation based on TV and movie ratings (protected by a 4-digit passcode).

Close Captions (CC): The SunBriteTV television provides Analog Closed Captions and Digital Closed Captions.

Sleep Timer: The sleep timer switches the television off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer can be set to 10, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, 180, or 240 minutes.

Water-Resistant Remote Control: The outdoor LCD TV includes a water-resistant IR remote control. remote is designed for outside use and has a high output transmitter to provide reliable operation in an outdoor environment. "Water-resistant" means that the remote control can be in water for short periods of time without damaging the internal workings of the unit. It can be left in the rain, and even dropped in water, as long as it is retrieved quickly. The remote control should not be left floating in water.

IR Emitter Input: The outdoor TV features a 3.5mm IR emitter input which can be used to connect an optional IR emitter cable (sold separately).

RS232 Control: The RS232 control feature maximizes system integration and programming security.

Wall-Mount: The outdoor TV can be wall mounted using SunBriteTV's optional wall-mount bracket (817SBWM32, sold separately). The TV has 4 threaded screw holes with a horizontal spacing of 100mm and a vertical spacing of 100mm. The screw holes all accept M6 (6mm) screws. The TV weighs 36.0 lbs without the stand.

Note: When using the TV outdoors, you must use a GFI protected AC outlet with "in-use" waterproof cover.

Placement: The TV must be installed at least 5' from pool, spa, or other body of water. The TV should be installed so the screen is not facing direct sunlight, or can be easily turned away from direct sunlight. Ideal placement is in an area where the TV is shaded by trees, landscape and/or structures, or under a patio cover or gazebo. Adequate ventilation must be maintained to ensure reliable and continued operation and to protect the television from overheating. Do not block ventilation slots and openings with objects, or install the television in a place where ventilation may be hindered. There must be at least 1.5" of space on all sides.

Note: If the sun shines directly on the screen for long periods of time, dark areas may develop on the screen. This is a normal reaction for the LCD panel, and will not cause damage to the screen. Either turn the screen away from the sun, or apply shade to the TV, and the dark areas will quickly disappear.

Auto Standby: The outdoor LCD TV features a power saving mode which will automatically turn off the TV if there is no signal provided for more than 15 minutes.

Sunbrite 32" Black Outdoor TV

Written By Anonymous, SunBriteTV® 3260HD on Saturday, June 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The unit arrived on 6/5/13 and was ready to hang on the mount. I ordered the mount the same day as the TV and it arrived on 6/3/13. I readied the mount in advance so that I could get it up and going as soon as possible, after its arrival. I had it mounted in less than 3 minutes after the unpacking process. This TV looks great on the wall in my patio area. It has a great picture that is only held back by the satellite receiver, that I have attached to it. I would recomend this unit to anyone who does not need a theater sized unit. I am happy that I purchased this model and look forward to viewing upcoming Nascar races and College football.
Pros:
Very nice unit, compact in size, fits nicely in my contained patio area.
Cons:
My satellite unit only has RCA and SVideo output. In order to attach my receiver and our Wii (for my wife's exercise video games), the audio for RCA and SVideo is shared with this unit. As the Wii only has RCA output, I had to use the SVideo portion for the satellite receiver. What this means is that you can never, repeat never, have both units energized at the same time, due to this audio being shared. This is kind of clunky and other users need to under-stand that both units cannot be on.

Great tv!!

Written By Midnight, Alsip, Illinois on Monday, May 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have tried to find reviews on this tv before I bought it, but found almost none. So I took the plunge, and bought this tv for our deck outside by our swimming pool. We have only had it for two months, but it works perfectly. The picture is phenonmenal with our HD receiver from Comcast, and I must say the sound is outstanding for a 32" inch! However, I have outdoor speakers set-up on my garage, so I use them for the sound, but you don't need them. Sound is great for this tv, and the simulated surround effect is awesome. We mounted the tv using the articulating bracket, and it is on the North side of our garage. It hardly gets any sun, but my old 32" always would have a glare, or reflection of us in it when we watched tv. This tv does not! I use it every chance I can to watch baseball games outside while on the deck, and in the pool. It is more than five feet away from the pool. It is built very well, and looks super tight, including the connection door in the back for our HDMI cables. We live just south of Chicago, so we will see what happens this winter, but as of right now, we are loving this tv. I'm glad we did this, because pulling out the old one, and hooking it up was a pain. Now it's there, and connected, and ready to watch whether grilling, swimming, or just relaxing. The price is reasonable. I plan on watching some football too outside with my propane heater. I have a 60 inch Panasonic plasma in the house, but love being outdoors with this tv!!
Pros:
Picture, no glare, sound
Cons:
None so far
