I was thinking about this earlier, one of the bosses at work uses LCD  
monitors and is visually impaired due to his age. It occurred to me  
that if he wasn't able to read fonts at native resolutions for the  
monitors, could he see well enough to notice that his LCD monitor was  
a little blurry because it wasn't at native resolution?

As far as colour goes, I'm not disappointed, I've found that current  
LCDs display them well.
