What exactly is TFT color technology and what advantages does it give?

>TFT is also called "ACTIVE MATRIX" display.  TFT is an ancronym for "Thin Film Transistor". It's is more expensive to build than the "PASSIVE MATRIX" schemes.  Unlike passive, it gives all colors in a single scan so it doesn't flicker (and you don't loose the mouse cursor when you move it!!) and it's colors are very bright and clear.  It's also generally brighter since the backlight has fewer layers of stuff to shine through.

>Is it worth the extra price?

Yes, it's worth the extra price if you value your eyes.
