PC Monitors for Remote Working

I can work remotely (nice thing about my job). What I have always hated is my monitors when working outdoors. My work laptop and my USB (HP) monitor are not bright enough.

I would like to purchase a couple new monitors. For traveling my preference is USB powered portable monitor. But I would be flexible with a traditional ~23" monitor. Anyone have a monitor you can recommend? Again it needs to be bright to overcome the sun and glare.

Thanks

I have not encountered a monitor that work outdoors in direct sunlight.

We have two mobile offices set up in our Senca, but they are exclusively inside.

I keep thinking about the NFL refs standing under a blackout hood to see the replay monitor.

I hear you. During 2020 I tried to work on my patio and it just didn't work, especially since it faces west. Once the sun moved over the house, game over.

You need a sun shield of some sort. You can buy one, or it wouldn't be hard to make your own. I know this works because I used a sheet of cardboard for part of a day and it worked great. I just didn't want to spend the time or money on doing anything more.
