N64 TV differences

Not everyone has the space to keep a extra CRT TV on hand for legacy console gaming so it behooves us all to discuss modern HDTV's that do a good job with the N64's low-res output signal.

My Sharp Aquos LC-40D68UT is excellent for any console feeding it via either component or HDMI but the N64's signal through composite (the set doesn't support S-Video :( ) looks absolutely horrible. The image is very washed out and blurry.

All my HDTV's allow me to switch between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.

Here in the U.S. my friend has a smallish Emerson (22 inch maybe) LCD TV and we often play Super Smash Bros. Melee on it. He's got his GameCube connected to the set with just composite cables and in 4:3 mode it doesn't look half bad. If I'm not mistaken the native resolution of that TV is 720p and it runs at 60 Hz.
