Why get a 20 inch? They are overpriced. Get either a 20.1inch or a 22inch. Here are two good ones in your budget.

Get either one of those.

Do you really need such an amazing monitor???

The contrasts an repsonse time are really well and Samsung make awesome monitors but....Do you need it? You are paying so much for a 20 inch monitor. You can get an excellent 22 inch for that price. That is probably the best 20 inch monitor you will find but the best is always overpriced. Look for a 20.1 or 22inch with around 5MS response time and like 800-1000 contrast ratio and that is where Price meets Performance and beauty. If not then go ahead and spend your money becuase thats an awesome monitor.
