Image:-Samsung announces a new outdoor TV called The Terrace
The Terrace is water- and dust-resistant, rated to IP 55 - sufficient to withstand "harmful dust contact" and "low-pressure water projected from a nozzle." For reference, the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra are both rated higher, to IP 68, but to be fair a TV mounted on a patio probably doesn't require as much protection as a telephone. Hopefully your TV is not going to go down in the pool.
Another slick feature is the built-in HDBaseT receiver, which can be paired with an optional HDBaseT transmitter to deliver video from source devices inside the house via a single Ethernet cable, such as a cable box or a game console. There is a special sealed, protected media bay designed for connected devices (8.3 inches wide by 10.6 inches high by 1 inch deep) if you wish to keep your gear outside. The Terrace, of course, also has Wi-Fi and a suite of built-in apps, such as the company's standard TVs, making setup even easier.
Samsung also alludes to the high brightness (2,000 nits), anti-reflective screen technology and adaptive brightness of the television. These features are typical of a high-end LCD TV but are even more welcome outdoors, where the image has to compete with sunlight. Samsung's indoor TVs are performing very well in bright environments in my tests and I expect the Terrace to look as good as any TV outside can. Other features of the image quality include 4 K HDR compatibility, full-array local dimming, 120Hz and 4 K Quantum Processor with AI from Samsung.
As far as looks were concerned, Samsung went with a standard matte-black frame with a 10-millimeter bezel and a cabinet depth of 59 mm which should allow the TV to blend nicely with your outdoor ironwork.
The matching soundbar ($1,200 price, HW-LST70 T model) is also IP55-rated, with sound tailored by the company's California audio lab for outdoors. It connects to the TV via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and also accepts Alexa voice commands, such as standard soundbars from Samsung, but does not include a subwoofer. The Bar includes a special Terrace TV mounting kit.
The Terrace is worth the price, then? Samsung rightly points out that most people who want an outdoor TV are instead buying a cheap indoor set and putting it on the deck. I advised a family member a couple of years ago to buy an indoor TV for its poolside gazebo rather than splurge on an outdoor model, and that set is still going strong. And here's a clever tip: Protect and unplug the TV with a waterproof cover during storms.
Until now SunBrite has been the biggest name on outdoor TVs and its sets are also expensive, starting at $2,000 for a 55-inch model. That TV is designed for "full shade," so I'm sure that the Terrace will be much brighter and will probably perform much better. Either way, it's tough to see most customers take the plunge until these true outdoor TVs come down in price. With budget 55-inch models starting at around $300, if one or two (or five) get fried by the weather, you 're still way ahead.
