Hi, Im looking for the actual size of the picture on those three sizes. Not the entire TV, just the actual screen.

Thx.

Jesus Christ. Not only can this information easily be looked up on the Internet (search for "tv screen size calculator"), you can easily calculate it if you have an 8th grade math education.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagorean_theorem

52": height = 52 * 9 / sqrt(16^2 + 9^2) = 25.49
width = height * 16/9 = 45.32

Well Sport, Sounds like the guy asked a good question, what is the height and width of a 16x9 TV.
It's not rocket science, and if you ever Googled a question like this 90% of the hits miss the question, I'm looking into a new TV and I wouldn't mind a list of HT(inches) by width(inches).
Nothing else, sport, and maybe you should try not responding to honest questions with your worthless attitude.
If YOU are not part of the solution, You are part of the problem .
