Default Looking for a nice monitor

Hey guys,

I'm looking for something around $140. I want it to be an HD monitor (HDMI) so that I can connect it in conjunction with my 2 DVI monitors.

I have been out of the game for a while, so I'm not sure where to look and what to look for (response time? contrast ratio?)

Thanks

1) What size do you want?
2) You can't get an HD monitor that cheap
3) You want LED - Backlit monitor
4) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236059 <----There's one of the cheapest HD monitors...but it isn't led backlit and it doesn't come with an HDMI cable.
5) LG - 23" Widescreen Flat-Panel LED Monitor - E2350V

This is the one I'm planning on getting soon.

Not much has changed in the last few years. Contrast has went up in LED models but, Response time is always going to be <5 is enough. I've had 1ms, 2ms, and now i'm actually on a 5ms and I've never seen any ghosting.

I ended up going for this one: Newegg.com - ASUS VH236H Black 23&#34; 2ms&#40;GTG&#41; HDMI Widescreen Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor 300 cd&#47;m2 20000 &#58;1 &#40;ASCR&#41; Built-in Speakers

Seems like a good deal for a 23"
