This was an issue at one time, but has largely been addressed as the 
industry has moved to active matrix technologies to handle screen 
refresh. The other areas that may differ are the acceptable viewing 
angle and brightness/colorimetry issues.

As with almost any display products, there are a range of performance 
levels available for LCD panels. If you find a cheap LCD TV, it is 
likely that the performance will not equal a more expensive model 
with better display technology and better internal image processing
