the samsung Rose series is great (p2350/70), but if you want absolute best i think the 120hz 3d capable monitors are the best, you'll have to shell out a bit though. Acer make some good high end monitors too.

Anything Samsung, you are going to pay a bit of a premium but you really do get what you pay for when you get any Samsung product.

i have a Samsung 23" LCD monitor and its freaking amazing, compared to what i had before a 15" glass monitor ( a samsung no less haha ) this thing is awesome!
