Default Quality LCD Monitor For Publishing & Design ?

I have had a high-quality Hitachi 19" CRT for many years, that is extremely sharp, highly adjustable, very gentle on the eyes, and I can set it to 85 vertical refresh for no flicker ... monitors don't get any better for viewing. I use it mostly for software design ... lots of visual work. I have the resolution set at 1152 x 864.

I am considering a 17" LCD (mainly for portable use), but I would like to find one of equal quality to my Hitachi. All the LCDs I've tried so far are far too harsh on the eyes, even at zero brightness settings. Another common issue I've noticed is that either a top or bottom, or a side of the screen is often lighter or darker than the rest of the screen. BTW, I do not care for the (over) brilliance of the Trinitrons either.

So, does anyone have any suggestions for professional LCDs that are very sharp, have uniform brightness, and very gentle on the eyes ? Any references ?
Thanks much,
Steve H
