Garage flat screen temperature question

by banditojunkie / October 25, 2006 11:34 PM PDT

I would like to place a 32'' flat screen in my detatched garage. The temperature ranges from 30 degrees in the winter to 90 degrees in the summer. What would be my best choice for a purchase for these conditions? Any help or knowledge would be greatly appreciated...

My garage gets hotter & colder than that.

I sure wouldn't chance an expensive TV acting like it was happy to perform in especially the cold environment. Admittedly this is non-expert opinion.

The tv would work fine in the cold weather. Since a flat panel tends to heat up quite a bit, being in the cold weather (in a garage) would not hurt. It's the hot weater you weant to be mindful of. Also, if your idea is to put a flat panel, I would buy a dell panel or something cheaper.

What do all of you think??? Lcd, Plasma,DLp...what would be the wisest choice. I'm really unsure at this point, thanks for all the responses

Well DLP, but they are not flat screens.
LCD will respond slower in cold temps and will be dim when you first turn them on. I have florescent lamps in my garage and it takes them a while to get to full brightness in cold weather.
Plasma may also have similar problem when it's cold. John

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
