"Smallest" Plasma?

Does anyone know which plasmas have the smallest bezel/width? Its pretty rediculous that LCD has such small bezels compared to the plasmas. The bezels alone on the Panny's add ~4" in width to the set! Any ideas?

Most lcd's do not have a glass front, allowing their structure to be fabricated lighter and smaller. The glass and weight alone require that the plasma structure be built to withstand the weight. Do you have certain width/height specs you need to meet?

Thanks for the information. I did not know thats why they are so big. I am probably going with an LCD as my TV can't be any bigger than 40" in width....

The P42S1 is 26.1" x 40.6" x 4.2", so it is only 0.6" beyond your 40" max width. Are you sure you do not have 0.6" to work with extra in your space?

I can, it will just overlap my door molding a bit. I don't think it will matter anyways as the doors open in correct? :thumbsup:

The Panasonic 42" Commercial Displays are only 40.2" in width.
