Default Best 22" LCD Monitor?

So, what's the best 22" LCD monitor for under $300 before rebate in terms of price and performance?

Can you tell the difference between 5ms and 2ms? I have another question. I don't like the glossy finish on some of the Samsung monitors. It is like looking at the screen through sunglasses. Can you order the Samsung without the glossy?
