Although expensive, the SunbriteTV Veranda is a perfect pick for full-shade viewing, as it has great contrast and is quite durable. However, other picks offer a smart TV platform and more brightness at more expensive pricing.

Product Snapshot

Overview

With a tested 451-nit brightness rating, the SunbriteTV Veranda TV 4K is good for outdoor, full-shade viewing, but it is fairly average overall.

It gets bright enough for content to remain comfortably visible in a shaded setting, and with a 4000:1 contrast ratio, its blacks and whites are both deep and bright.

The picture quality on the SunbriteTV is superb thanks to its 4K resolution, and its 8ms response time keeps motion blur at bay, but its three HDMI ports are limiting.

With Viewing angles of 178°, it is great for group viewing since content is visible from the sides, but its 60Hz refresh rate is too low for competitive gaming.

Check out our Toshiba M550 TV review for an alternative with a higher 120Hz refresh rate that would suit gamers. This Sunbrite Veranda TV is also sufficiently weatherproofed, but its 451-nit brightness level is below par compared to other high end alternatives in its category. .

ReasonS to Buy

  • Picture quality
    • The Veranda TV delivers sharp pictures courtesy of its 4K picture resolution and rich color, as it also has 98.61% coverage of the sRGB color space. This places it in the top 20% of the TVs in our list of tested TVs.

  • Good contrast ratio
    • Blacks and whites are deep and bright thanks to the TV’s 4000:1 contrast ratio, which is fairly average compared to the other alternatives in its category.

  • Rapid response time
    • There is no noticeable motion blur on the Veranda TV 4K full shade thanks to a super quick 8ms response time.

  • Wide viewing angles
    • Images on the Veranda TV 4K stay well visible even when viewed from the side, as the TV has an impressive 178° viewing angle, making it perfect for group viewing.

Reason to Avoid

  • Low brightness rating
    • For a TV of its caliber, its 451-nit brightness rating is below average compared to other alternatives, but the content is still well-visible in the outdoors, as long as the TV is mounted under a shade.

  • Low 60Hz refresh rate
    • The low refresh rate and lack of support for Variable Refresh Rate technology mean that gamers will experience screen judder when gaming.

  • Poor port selection
    • There aren’t any HDMI 2.1 ports on the Veranda TV 4K, so it is not compatible with modern Playstation or Xbox consoles

The main difference between the SunbriteTV Veranda 4K and the Sunbrite Veranda TV 3 4K Android is that the former misses out on a SmartTV platform, while the latter runs on the Android TV interface. Through the Android TV platform, users will be able to access a broader range of streaming services. Go ahead and check out what else it offers by going through our SunbriteTV Veranda TV 3 4K Android review.

At around 451 nits, the SunbriteTV Veranda TV 4K Full Shade TV is slightly less bright than the Furrion Aurora 43-inch, rated as 538.9 nits. However, the Sunbrite TV also has a better contrast ratio of 4000:1 compared to the Furrion TV, at 1,017:1, meaning the blacks on the Sunbrite TV are much brighter than the Furrion Aurora. We’ve also covered the Furrion TV in our Furrion TV review if you’re interested.

As its title implies, the SunbriteTV Veranda 4K Full Shade is meant for use in a full-shade setting, making it slightly different from the SunbriteTV Pro 2 Series 4K, which is designed for use in a full-sun outdoor setting. As a result, the Pro 2 Series has a couple of advanced features that the Veranda Series does not. For example, the Pro 2 Series offers TruVision Antiglare Screen Technology while the Veranda TV does not, and the Pro 2 Series also has a Protective Glass Shield that the Veranda TV does not.
