You are using an LCD for color correction? We have tested a ton of LCD's 
and have yet to find one that has the color adjustability that we 
require for our color calibration software that we need for color 
correction (hell, very few CRT's are capable, we use the Dell P992 and 
the Sony FW-900 right now). Real black is almost impossible on a LCD.

I could see getting by with an LCD for compositing, but your colors 
could still get all out of whack, so why bother. All our compositors use 
  the Sony FW-900 now (yay, 24" monitor for $349 on eBay).
