My biggest issue (and why I don't have one yet) is that I don't want to be pigeon-holed into using certain resolutions.
Yeah, well, there's that too. It's the main reason I went back to my CRT for now but with my system I was more concerned about being limited to 1280x1024 (my current LCDs native res). I think I'd be happier with a 1600x1200 or higher LCD as long as the non-native resolutions aren't too blurry (since there's always the chance that some cutting edge game won't run acceptably at 1600x1200 or higher.
