I really like my 21.5" Acer monitors. They're 1920x1080 and have a contrast ratio of like 20,000:1 or something. They're niiiiiice.

I can't find any other link, so here's a Newegg link just to show you what it is: (not the same model, but has the same specifications) Newegg.com - Acer H213H bmid Black 21.5" 5ms HDMI Full HD 1080P Widescreen 16:9 LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ACM 20000:1 Built-in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Actually yes 1080p (1920x1080) is much better to go with. iFargle's one looks good.

And all monitors are HD :P

So why is it that when searching through some screen, some dont mention anything about HD and some keep banging on about it saying HD this, full HD that etc.
I thought its to do with screen resolution as to whether its HD or not? maybe im wrong in my thinking though.............

It just tends to be TVs which advertise their HD-ness; monitors have been HD (though the term didn't exist then) since the early 90s.
HD means any resolution above 1024x768, though even then it's just a marketing term.
