Since LCD's are pretty much a fixed resolution (they can run smaller
generally, but they just stretch things), getting the exact config for
XFree can sometimes be a pain, but once you do that, it should just work.

We have bought a few LCD's for work and generally we buy the Samsung's.
They are very nice and relatively cheap. I have heard good things about
the LG's too, and they are even cheaper.

I recently read a review that placed the Sharp LCD's above almost
everything, but I haven't actually seen one.
