What are the difference between TFT and HPA flatscreens?
Does one hold any advantage over the other?

From what I understand the HPA is just an improved version of the Passive Matrix display. Better of course, but definately not as good as the Active Matrix TFT displays.

I am sure that the price of the screen will reflect this.

The good thing about TFT is that it's better that HPA, better quality but more expensive.

The BAD thing about TFT is that you cannot adjust the contrast (you can adjust the Brightness, but not the contrast).

Therefore you'll get the pain in the eye if you try to view under bright light.

The solution to this problem is to spend another few $100+ bucks to buy an Anti-glare screen filter.
