    I'm going to cut out a piece of carboard and see if a 42 inch plasma is too big for my lounge, but then i got the thinking- exactly how do i measure it - is a 42 inch plasma 42 inch diagnal? How large are they from one side to the other - ie justthe actual viewing screen, not the plastic?

    it's the viewing screen...you need to access the online manual for whatever screen you are thinking about to get the full dimensions

    42" is just the diagonal sreen measurement.
    There are measurements for the fujisu on www.plasmavision.com

    The measurements for the pannys (including bezel):
    1178 x 730 for the PV500
    1068 x 701 for the PE50
