    I see alot of lower-end LCD TVs around (around 13-15" models), and briefly looking at display models I don't see any NTSC interlacing. However, at the same time, they don't claim to have progressive scan, either (while higher end LCDs do).

    What exactly are they?

    LCDs are inherently progressive scan. What you should be looking for is the ability to convert interlaced sources (like low-end satellite TV receivers and devices that output s-video like game consoles) into a progressive image and still retain decent picture quality. All LCD TVs will have this basic ability, although not all LCD TVs will have component inputs and also support a pure progressive signal.

    Unfortunately, it's difficult to tell if any LCD TV will accept a pure progressive signal without looking at the specs.
