What’s a nice summer day without a little TV?

Pantel is the worldwide leader in outdoor, weatherproof TVs. Sure, it’s a bit of a niche market, but it’s still a pretty impressive claim.

Pantel’s primary business is in outdoor televisions, and it’s been doing well. CEO Joe Pantel says the company has had to kick things into high gear in order to keep up with demand. “For the first quarter of 2010, Pantel has had strong sales, especially for its 42 and 52-inch weatherproof TVs. To accommodate this increase in sales, Pantel has expanded its sales team to better service both our domestic and international customers.”

You can pick up an outdoor television in a variety of sizes, but the best value for the money seems to be the 42” model, which sports a 1080p resolution and runs $4,999. You can go as high as 65” but you’ll be stepping up to a $25,999 price tag.

Pantel’s mirror models are made for indoor use, and are designed to look like traditional mirrors when not in use. They run a bit cheaper and a bit smaller. The 42” version is the largest, and runs $4,499.
