Summary: The Sanyo’s enclosure is well-designed, and the set should withstand even the harshest rainstorm’s effects. From a picture quality standpoint, the Sanyo is unremarkable, and the poor deinterlacing is typical of a commercial display. Compared to better-performing consumer LCD sets, which shouldn’t be used outdoors of course, it comes up short.
Summary: Sanyo's 42LM4WPN delivers a great looking 720p image wrapped up in a snazzy aluminum waterproof enclosure. At $8500, it's designed for the digital signage and commercial markets. But if you love luscious color fidelity and you have an inclement TV viewing environment, then you should consider this weather resistant monitor.
