I concur with the Dell U2412m monitors. I have two of them and its the best purchase I've ever made, its fantastic.
Also, I spent a few weeks trying to decide what I wanted and a good friend had a simple solution. Go to Amazon.com, search for computer monitors, and then sort by Avg Customer Rating....the top ten are pretty much guaranteed to be fantastic monitors you will have very little to no complaints about. And going by that standard its still the Dell U2412M.http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=monitors&qid=1371531254&rh=n%3A172282%2Cn%3A541966%2Cn%3A1292115011%2Ck%3Amonitors&sort=reviewrank_authority
