It bugs me too.
Back when LCD flatscreens were new, I saw several that all had a way to
tell the screen "don't rescale; display screen pixel = display pixel
even if it means a black border". It's discouraging to see that this
seems to ahve fallen by the wayside; as you say, scaling by a
non-integer factor produces a crap display.
Despite that, I'll probably buy myself one soon simply because they are
so much crisper. I have a window using a 5x7 character cell. On a CRT
that is only barely readable; on the LCD, it's fine - and the CRT has
the physically larger screen of those.
But I'm not going to be getting rid of the CRTs, no sirree bob. Just
replacing the routine-use CRT with an LCD for, well, routine use.
