This is a decent monitor:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "iiyama Vision Master Pro 510"
        HorizSync       30-130
        VertRefresh     50-160
        Option          "DPMS"

This is not:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Philips 109 B5"
        HorizSync       27-92
        VertRefresh     50-160
        Option          "DPMS"

I think your LG and my Philips are probably quite comparable. The iiyama (22") 
is way better than any LCD I've ever seen. At 1200x1600 at 85Hz there's no 
noticeable flicker and text is crisp. With the Philips (19") comparison with 
a good LCD is perhaps possible.
