Ask Engadget: best outdoor TV?

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from John, who is so baller that he wants a TV for his pool and doesn't end his emails with thank you. If you're looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I'm getting ready to have a pool installed and I need a TV for the back porch. I'm looking for something in the 50-inch range that works outdoors, has good viewing angles and backlighting (for the sun) and can handle whatever the weather throws at it. Any suggestions?"

We can imagine it now, you, kicking back watching the Superbowl American Idol finals while submerged in a few feet of water as the sun goes down. So, what device should you go for? For starters, there's SunBrite's 46-inch outdoor TV, which'll set you back $2,795, or a 55-inch model, which costs $5,595. You could also paint a wall white and get set up with an outdoor projector, like Panasonic's PT-AE7000U, which we're informed will work outside perfectly well. But that's just our scratching the surface, what about you all chip in with a suggestion or two of your own?
