We've had a Westinghouse (!!!) 42-inch LCD monitor for about six months now.  
It's in our great room, which is virtually all windows and southern exposure.  
The monitor actually sits between two fairly large windows.  We have absolutely 
no issues with viewability on bright days.  I sampled a few of the football 
games my son was watching yesterday from about the time he woke up until he 
went to bed, and there was never any issue of washout.  In fact, I kept 
thinking, "This HD stuff is absolutely amazing!"

I don't think this set has LED background. 

The shack is adjacent to the great room but, more importantly, one of my 
80-meter dipoles runs diagonally over the great room, perhaps 60 feet above it. 
 I certainly have a bunch of junk I hear on the low end of 80 and 160, but it's 
still there long after I've pulled the plug on the Westinghouse.
