40" was the largest commonly available size. I worked on one of the 40" Sony's for a friend a few years ago. It was a HD model with a DVI input. It had a good picture after some major tweaking, but they're HEAVY.

No need to tell me...My 34" HD CRT Sony is supposed to be 208lb, and I've lifted that sucker.

I've never bothered to lift a 40" set but I was smart enough not to try...Last house my family owned the prev owners had one, and I've seen 2-3 in thrift shops...I even know a thrift where one that is 40" or close is at now.

How much did they weight? Thought they had around 100-120 kilos or so, but funk me, they where monsters! Heck, they where heavier then an old washing machine!

The 40" Sonys we sold were beasts. After delivering one we had
a moving company move the rest. The matching base took two to
handle it ! Set must have been 300 lbs & base 100 lbs.
Another shop destroyed one when they tried a dolly & caved in the bottom.
You had to strap it to a sheet of ply wood 1st then dolly it.

As for screen size they may be measuring the dead glass also. Example
in Canada a 25" sets was called 26". I dont remember any CRT's
above 40" US but there may have been........
