I've been reading this topic with interest, and I'm interested that the newer answers are mostly the same as the answers from '05 -- is it really the case that no progress has been made on LCD quality in the 3 years since this thread began?

I use LCD monitors at home, and while I'm not a professional, I do produce work that's printed and hanging on people's walls -- I haven't noticed a problem with the colors being different printed compared to my LCD monitor.

Maybe I'm just more forgiving?

Well I just bought an HD LCD and I've been messing with it for days to match my CRT. It just seems like I can't get enough detail in the blacks as my CRT. I calibrate it, then mess with the monitors settings like brightness/contrast but it just won't match exactly but it's close.

So like most people, I just work on it, and then when I'm done I'll use my CRT for final color correction.

most people in the buisness as i know work with both a highly calibrated crt and a dvi connected LED LCD from Samsung, Nec or Dell if you are a real freak on colors get a good sony crt too for comparison.. that should do it..
