Depends on which ones. The ones you get on cheap Ibanez's aren't too good from what I've heard, but lots of companies make very good LFRs. It just depends on the specific model.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

some do some dont
for example jacksons do stay in tune
but cheaper ones like peaveys dont

but schaller and gohto(sp?) are very close to a real floyd
and ibanez edge, lo pro edge and zr are very very good ones too
#5
its stays pretty good.
nothing close to the good ibanez and the OFR
but yeah as long as your not trying to imitate herman li your fine

Most cheap Floyd copies will stay in tune reasonably well when the guitar is new. The problem is they use cheap alloys and in time the knife edges on the bridge will wear, preventing the bridge from returning to the same position after use, resulting in tunign issues. The better quality Floyd copies will generally last longer

Indeed. Schaller actually manufacture the real brand name Floyd Rose bridges for Floyd Rose. They use the same hardened metals and parts. Really, the only difference between a Schaller and a real Floyd is the brand name and the price tag.

Yes, licensed tremelos work the same way as original, other companies just have to change it for license reasons.

At one point in the not too distant past, Schaller was pricier than an OFR.

...So yeah.

And also, Gotoh used to make the nicer Ibanez trems.

the Ibanez ZR bridge costs a bit over 100 dollars more than the OFR

thats why the S series guitars are priced so high. That and the contouring done on it.

Anyways.. off topic but is it possible to put a sustainer system into the S series guitar?

Ibanez's ZR's are absolutely incredible, though. If you can get your hands on one, by all means, do it.
