Default LCD/Screensavers

Years ago, when CRTs were commonplace, I was told that screensavers were no longer necessary, in terms of protecting monitors, but since I switched to a LCD recently, I've read a couple of comments that suggested that LCDs might be more subject to being damaged by a prolonged static there any truth in this?

I just went through the available screensavers that came with W7 RC and there are only a few, none of which has much of an appeal to me. Is there any difference in the manner in which one must manage choosing downloading and managing screensavers than on older Windows versions?
