Never said that the LCDs are junk.  They have come a long way since their beginnings.  
This is why I recommend taking a look here:

It's native resolution is 1600x1200.

And why is it that the STUPID 17 inch outdoor LCD screen at my local Wendy's Drive 
thru has better contrast and color than the
indoor desktop LCD screens?  Even when the temperature is -20 outside?  (Though, the 
pixel transition speed around scrolling text
begins to suffer dramatically.)
