I have taken to bringing my iPad, a USB cable, and the iPad camera connection kit so I can check photos on my iPad instead of the LCD display. I do use the histogram, however there are times when it's desired to underexpose or overexpose parts of an image, for example in landscape photography where one might be merging multiple exposures in PP either with layers or as an HDR.
I've been burned too many times when I would zoom in on the LCD only to later come home and find overexposed, blurry photos instead of nice ones that I thought I saw on my LCD screen.
This brings up the second reason not to use the LCD explicitly: regardless of the histogram, even zoomed in, I find it difficult to judge sharpness via the LCD display. The iPad has solved this issue for me, although it adds extra tasks when shooting and during the golden hours time passes quickly before the best light is gone, so it's not the most practical solution. If I had a camera with live view, the iPad would be my live view LCD screen. I am hoping with WiFi I will be able to do this on the 6D when it becomes available.
Take this with a grain of salt though because I shoot with an XTi, that has no live view, and I am sure the LCD screens on newer cameras have higher resolution and maybe some of the issues I am describing are not applicable with newer cameras.
