The best 32" outdoor TV under the sun
SunBriteTV's Pro Series weatherproof TVs take outdoor viewing to the next level. Extended Solar Tolerance (EST) technology allows the TV to be viewed in direct sunlight. An anti-glare tempered-glass shield in front protects the TV screen from potential damage. That's especially important if the TV is near a backyard play area where an errant volleyball or Frisbee® could smack the screen.
Designed to live outdoors year-round, the 32" SB-3211HD is a perfect addition to your outdoor kitchen or patio, deck, yard, or other outdoor living area. The bright LED-lit panel delivers brilliant, colorful images — whether you're watching in afternoon sunlight or silvery moonlight. The notion of leaving a TV out in the elements takes some getting used to, but this TV is incredibly rugged.
How rugged is it?
This TV's powder-coated aluminum 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 -40°F. In the world of outdoor TVs, SunBriteTV is known for providing both quality and value. Every one of their TVs is designed, engineered and built in California.
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 (great for streamed video or sharing vacation slideshows). A detachable all-weather speaker bar is included, and you can attach it either above or below the TV screen. SunBriteTV really thought of everything — even the remote control is weatherproof.
