IMO go with the samsung 24". I'v never had a problem with any samsung product, that 24" has billions of good reviews. (ok not BILLIONS lol). But it is a tag more expensive.

for the monitor i want it doesn't need to have all those features like usb or memory card reader. i just want plain one like that dclcd which has vga and dvi and sound which i probably won't use the sound.
I believe that the 4000:1 number is the dynamic ratio although in reality it would usually 1000:1 . I've been told that dynamic contrast ratios don't really mean squat and is just a number to try to impress a potential buyer.

It looks like the majority is leaning towards that samsung monitor, thanks for all the input everyone, appreciated.

i personally would take a 22'' sceptre over the 226bw because after MIR the sceptre is $200
:edit: wait now its $230, but it was $200, still good price for 22'' 2ms 1000:1
i'd expect the price/performance to be around the same for 24''
