Ditto, could not agree more with you. I have two Iiyama TFT's in my office, one is a 17" the other a 19". They are so convenient space wise, and the performance is excellent.
Now that you are converted, suggest (if you use Windows XP) that you download from Microsoft 'Clear Type'. This is an utility that improves the appearance of text on TFT Monitors. You tailor it to suit your liking.
