There is one more big factor the writeups above have failed to mention: the contrast and colors of current LCD displays are highly angle-dependant. The picture may be perfect if you sit directly before it, but if you look at it from an angle, image quality decreases rapidly.

This makes LCD displays unfit for situations where several people are looking at the screen, or where people look at it from varying positions. For example, an LCD display makes for a rather poor living room TV screen or data display for team-based work.

This problem may seem unimportant for a PC user, but may turn out to be annoying if you often want to show something on the screen to somebody else.
