The problem used to be that meters read too high because the CRT flickered
and the meter read peak and not average light value.

But now we live in the LCD age, and the LCDs don't flicker the same way, so
you can pretty much trust meter exposures off an LCD.  Also you can put your
reflected light meter against an LCD without fear of magnetizing the screen
as would happen with CRTs.

I'd still bracket a stop either way but the LCD makes this much easier.  You
can even film off an LCD without too much flicker.
