Hello all, stop me if you've heard this before....I'm looking for an outdoor TV and I'm concerned about reflectivity/glare.

The TV will be under a covered patio where it will never be exposed to rain and probably never to direct sunlight of any kind, but I'm very concerned about picture quality and reflections. I visited the rtings.com site and reviewed their test results. Their list of highly rated TVs for low reflection included many Samsungs as you can see...

My problem is that I need a very specific size of 40" (a 39" TV might also work).
I'd also like to stay under $600-700 if possible.
And, while I'd prefer UHD/4K it's not necessary. A 1080P screen will be fine.

The Samsungs at the top of the list do not seem to come in 40" sizes. That appears to be my biggest challenge. The technologies I'm starting to hear about that help reduce reflectivity like Moth Eye, etc. do not seem to be found down at the 40" screen size.

Finally, I'm aware of the matte-like screen films that can be applied to a TV to reduce glare. I really want to avoid doing that, but it is a last resort I guess.

Thanks for any advice.

I'm looking for a 50-55" TV with low input lag and good viewing angles. Under $1000 and IPS preferred. Any suggestions?
