Edit: saw your comment about staying ~$200, not sure you can do that with a 24".
If you step down to 23" you can do it, looks like most of those monitors are 16:9 1920x1080 resolution which is fine. I still dont like the 2048 x 1152 monitor you posted.
i can get a 24" at 1920x1080 for $200....just not a 24" at 1920x1200

Then i would do that, 1920x1200 is nice, but not necessary, as you can see from every1's comments sayings its basically preference only that which you should get.
The bonus to 1920x1200 wasnt really the resolution increase over the 1920x1080, its the ratio was 16:10 instead of 16:9. So the 23" monitor you posted with that weird resolution was 16:9 anyway. So in that case a 24" 1920x1080 would be much preferred over the 23" 16:9 weird resolution.

I've heard that LED backlighting is the way to go now. They have better contrast and save lots of electricity.

You most likely will not be able to tell the difference between 1080p and 1200p, that being said I would just go with the cheaper option.

Probably already stated.

LED backlighting is great, but it also drives the price up a lot.

^ That's a good deal and there are a few others at Newegg. If you can spend more , this one is supposed to be awesome : Newegg.com - Acer S243HL bmii Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen White LED backlight Monitor 250 cd/m2 8,000,000:1 Max (ACM) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

The manufacturing costs are going way down on the LED backlit monitors. The fluorescent backlit monitors are currently being replaced by LED backlit ones.

In that range this is the best I can find:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2494SW Glossy Black 24" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 50000:1 (1000:1) - LCD Monitors
19x12 is not going to happen.
