    Which one you prefer?

    LCD: Liquid Crystal Display
    TFT: Thin Film Transistor

    While the two terms are generally (if incorrectly) synonymous a well made version of either works for me and beats a low quality version of the other.

    For pure image quality some of the TFT stuff due in the next few years should blow away any other stuff around.

    For the quality\price ratio, I'd have to go with LCD. They also can last years and years, the only time they die is when to backlight burns out (most of the time).

    I have a NeoGeo Pocket in front of me here that has a crisp, clear TFT display. It looks great especially in low light. I daresay it looks better than any of the screens on Nintendo's handhelds aside from the brilliant DS Lite.

    As a bonus, the battery lasts almost forever since no backlight is required.
