for the majority of customers that I've heard about via these forums, including my own experience and statements by at least 3 resellers (IST, Geared2Play, & ProPortable), issues with the screen of the Z71v have been blown way out of proportion. Yes, it's not perfect. Yes, there are "sparkles". But no, you probably won't notice them after a week of use unless you're looking for them, and other than that, the screen's great.
According to the resellers, who have seen them side by side, the screen on the Z70v is better, so you made a good decision. However the Z71v screen isn't half bad either. Just my 2 cents worth.
