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........

But why those very big screen tv sets costed so much? Well, there was hard to manufacture very big C.R.T.'s, but why around 17,000 U.S.D.'s and not 5,000?

$17,000.00? What set are you referring to?

Actually, the 2.4 million yen price on the big Sony converts to around USD$21000 whether you use today's exchange rate or the historical rate from a random day in 1994. $17000 must have been the sale price

I guess that's possible. I've never seen a CRT that big, iirc in 1994 a 27" would have been the most common size, 31"-32" would have been a pricey bigger screen and 35"-36" were just coming out.

This would have been a super high end, special order only set that was probably only available from the highest end electronic stores in super rich areas.

I have blurry childhood memories of seeing rear projection sets back in the special high-end part of the store (where they usually chased me out before I got too close) with $10000+ price tags. At the time the cheapest 14" color portable was $399 and a 27" started at $899 (but then went well over $1000 for a NICE one). The first 42" plasma I ever saw had a $19999 price tag on it. So I guess $17000 for what is likely the biggest and highest end CRT set of the time isn't really that out of order.

I've never seen either of the 43" sets posted above. Were either of them even sold outside of Japan? I think I've seen one 40" CRT set in my life - it was out on the curb and I had to leave it there because I simply couldn't move it.

Holy schnikes, that first one weighs almost as much as a KV-3000 console. I didn't know CRT sets that big existed; I'd have to see one in person to take it all in.

I think it was an 40" one for sale in Bucharest in the early '90's.
