Wow!   Are those average sizes?   (cue song: "Frank's 2000-inch TV" by 
Weird Al)

In my apartment, my 24" set (60 watts, bought in 1998) is -- well, it'll 
have to do.

LOL: I just went searching through my drawer of appliance manuals to 
look for the year I bought that set.   I found some Continental 
Cablevision installation forms ($31.95/mo, Cambridge, 1988) and a 
receipt from buying a Mitsubishi VCR at Highland Superstore in Brighton 
($407 in 1988).
