I can sell you this one for 189.99
Newegg.com - HYUNDAI X224W Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

I'm just curious, why 21.5? Might as well go 22", especially since it's more Standard you are likely to have a compatible resolution with more things.

Either of those monitors you posted are quite nice also. Acer is a great Bang for your Buck monitor brand.

What's your budget? Define "Not that much money."

What contrast ratios are you looking for?

What resolution?

Other criteria?

OK, let me see what I can do for you.

That monitor you posted is nice, but quite expensive, for that price range you could probably do better.

I'll post some up in a bit

My friend has a Hanspree (HannsG), and I really like it.

This is a great bang-for-your buck monitor. Good specs all around for the price.

Anything by LG or Samsung will be amazing, but they do have a premium price.

Since you are on a budget, Acer, Hannspree, Asus will be the way to look.

No problem, good luck in your search.
