How much are you willing to spend? What will you be using it for?

I recently ran across this guide. It has a lot of explanation about what to look for in monitors and it also gives some recommendations based on planned use.

AnandTech - The LCD Thread

Hope it helps.

24" Dells are pretty good ATM.
