Dell is another great option for monitors. They tend to use Samsung panels and also offer a 3 year warranty w/ no bright pixel guarantee.

Dell G2410 24 inch Full HD LED Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor Details

The only thing this monitor is lacking is HDMI but DVI-> HDMI cables are very easy to come by.

Personally I would avoid Hans-G/Hanspree/Acer but I am pretty picky when it comes to displays.

nice I've only got a lowly 24" at the moment lol, 32" sounds so much bigger

I'm waiting for the thin bezel monitors to come out for my upgrade tho, triple monitors ftw!

^ they did come out and they are like $1900 for a set of three 23 inchers haha. Check this article out, you have to scroll down to the title "Finally - News on Samsung Thin Bezel Displays ... is Suckage" and read it there because when you click the link it gives a blank page:

Actually I still can't find any of the actual Samsung MD230's for sale. They linked to Dell alternatives, but they've got relatively chunky bezels.

meh, $1,900 might be a leeetle too much for 3 monitors anyway, I think I'll do a custom job.

I can vouch for DELL monitors, i've had my 22" dell for a while now but am looking to upgrade to a 1080p 23.6" incher or something. I would love to grab a LED display though, the contrast is amazing on those things.
