Well I know you said under 250, but this one is 250 exactly (after the instant rebate)... Newegg.com - SCEPTRE X22WG-1080p Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

I like it a lot, 1680x1050 and 2ms response, with built in speakers (but you probably don't need them), a great contrast ratio, and a good 300 candle power per square millimeter so you know it's gonna be bright

I have this monitor:
Newegg.com - Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

its badass, I love the picture. Got it at bestbuy for 189.99. If you can wait a month I bet it will be that same price again on black friday.

I like your suggestion UA, seems like it's more recent version of the one I looked at.

it's not 100% sure thing that they're going to have the same monitor for the same price, but since the time I bought it the same deal has been repeated.

I am going to pick up a second one.
