Er, you guys *are* using the LCD's at their native resolution, 
I hope.  Otherwise the monitor is interpolating on top of whatever 
your O/S is doing to scale and draw the image.  In my experience, 
the monitor does a lousy job of this, so you definitely need to 
run an LCD at it's native resolution.  Maybe you can set it up 
to letterbox the display from your classicmp gear :-).

(I'm on a 24" Samsung LCD in 1920x1200 and liking it a lot, but 
it's *way* off topic :-).)
