Default Need help picking a monitor

Hey guys I need some opinions on picking a monitor:

Basic spec I'm looking for 22inch widescreen 1000:1 2-5ms 1680x1050 DVI or HDMI

I'm a fan of samsung, lg, and dell <--yes lol and I know their prices are high compared

to the low end companies like Hanns-G or BenQ but what do you guys think of

Soyo or Envision? are they reliable?

Soyo
SOYO 22'' Widescreen Citrine Series, DVI, 1,000:1, TFT LCD Monitor, built-in Speakers -Black DYLM2284 or DYLM-2280 - DYLM2284 - Buy.com

Envision
Envision G2219W1 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor at Staples®

Would you guys get those? Or should I just spend the extra cash for a Samsung or Dell?
Specifically Samsung ToC T220 or Dell SP2208WFP.

Any other LCD out there you guys recommend? Thanks for all comments and inputs!

Edit: Movies, games, and more real estate is why I'm upgrading from my 17inch non widescreen.
I will be using the 17inch as a second monitor though =)
I'm spoiled at work with dual 24inch Dell's arggg

226bw tried to find it on newegg but its deactivated...is that an old model?

is this the new model
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2253BW Black 22&#34; 2ms&#40;GTG&#41; DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 300 cd&#47;m2 DC 8000&#58;1 - LCD Monitors

looks good for 279.00 - 20rebate = 259.99 + free shipping

soyo and envision are pretty low quality brands

dell monitors are super nice, but definitely more expensive

sammy's are good
