Default philips lcd monitor

going to buy this one in the next week or 2

philips 19 inch 190X5FB

i'm reading all about these monitors over the last few days, and even a toms hardware review says good things about this 19 inch monitor.

just a few things, they say it is 18bit colour compared to my 17 inch crt which displays at 24bit, since i won't be playing many games, and mainly doing simple video editing, dvd authoring, and some photo/picture editing, the rest just staring/editing office/internet documents, how do people find these lower colour ranges offered by lcd? Are the tradeoffs for bigger screen size, lcd being easier on the eye definitely worth the lower colour range?
