For me, if it eats up the battery power more

...then I'd rather have the current crop of lcd's instead. Doesn't really matter to me what the specs are or if they have been exaggerated. The current lcd's work fine for me.

I'm sure someone already brought this up and I just missed it, but I
am a bit dissappointed with Nikon's advertising for this claim:

As you already know, the new D3 and D300 are supposed to have this
incredible 920,000 dot resolution. But it would have been more
honest to describe it as everyone else does, and call it a 307,000
pixel (which is much closer to the 2XX,000 range that other cameras
have).

McNamara explains the little slight here:
