Focusing on the XLH1

I have a question regarding focus with the XLH1. Is it difficult to achieve a clean crisp focus with the H1? I've read the sticky of Disjecta's comments, and how tricky it is to get crisp focus all the time. Now, if i were to get the H1, would i need to get an external monitor (marshall) to ensure clean focus all the time? or does the peaking, and focus assisting tools accommodate?

Peaking helps and the auto focus works well in 60i, but is useless in 24f as it responds way too slow. To be sure of focus all the time you will need an HD monitor, the Marshall is good or a larger LCD. The Panasonic 17" is amazing if you can haul around a big monitor.
