This is not true. The screens of both N3 and N5 are MVA (Multi-domain Vertical Alignment) screens. MVA is an improvement over TN (twisted nematic), but it is not proprietary to Fujitsu.
Crystal View, as far as we know, is a proprietary technology of Fujitsu. It offers increased brightness and contrast over other screens, including other MVA screens. The N5010 also has an AR-coated glossy screen, while most other screens are matte. Not sure about the screen finish of the N3010, however.
I've seen the N3010 and the N5010 side-by-side. The contrast and brightness difference is clearly visible. The specs verify this fact: the N5010's screen has a 600:1 contrast ratio, compared to the 400:1 contrast ratio of the N3010.
