Is this TV good for outside under a covered porch out of the elements?

If you're going for an outdoor TV, I'd go with a SunBrite TV. They are waterproof and are better outdoors, although they are expensive. This TV will be okay outdoors, but to get the optimal viewing experience I highly reccomend you use this TV indoors in a dimly lit room.

I wouldnt think it would be. Mainly because of the glare of a plasma. Personally ive gone with a lcd outside.

The glare on your screen from sunlight is going to be a big deal. If you can angle it so you don't get a glare then you might be alright.

I'm not an electronics technician, but I think that I can give a prudent answer. Your question would apply to just about every flat screen TV on the market. Hopefully you live in a temperate area where the climate does not go below freezing. Just keep the TV out of direct sunlight and hang a piece of plastic or old bedsheet if the TV is not being used for extended periods. My guess is that you'll degrade the life of the TV by a couple of years being outside in the elements; and several years if you live within a mile of saltwater.

I have it in my Florida room - which is essentially a porch that is glassed in on the north side of our house. This room does not have heat or A/C - in Florida. The TV has no glare and performs just as well as it's counterpart that is in our family room.

I would think it would be fine, if it's dry, not very humid and not freezing cold, it has a beautiful bright sharp plasma screen ...which is the only kind you would be able to see outside in bright sunlight. There is nothing in the owners manual that states not to be used outside. Good luck with it.
