Need some help for Outdoor Screen

We have a large shed outside that we've been using a small 55" TV to show games and movies in the day or night. We want to upgrade to something bigger but not break the bank. So we were thinking either a cheap 75" TV or a go with Projector setup. The shed is open on all 4 sides so in the afternoons, there is a lot of light out there. Can someone help as to what would be the best thing to use, thanks.

Panasonic 65" 1080P Plasma, Onkyo TX-NR656
Bic Acoustech (2 PL-89 Fronts, 1 PL-28 Center,
4 PL-66 Side & Rear Surrounds, 2 PL-200 Subs)

In your situation, go with a TV. Outdoors with daylight/sunlight just doesn't work with a projector. It's like bringing a knife to a gun fight. A 75"-85" LED/LCD TV will produce a much better picture for you during the daylight hours.

A projector outside really doesn't work well until 20-30 minuets after sundown. A projection screen reflects light to work and with sunshine coming in all directions during the daylight hours, the little lamp on a projector is no competition for the sun. You could close in the shed to control the light, but that really negates the reason to be outside.
