Default Need a new monitor

Hey everyone,

So my single laptop monitor doesn't feel enough and so I now want an additional monitor.
Can anyone point out a good monitor for its price with the specs I need?
  • 23-24 Inch
  • 1920 x 1080 OR 1920 x 1200
  • Rotate to portrait
  • DVI or HDMI
  • Nice Colour (I don't mind TN or IPS)
  • Good response time
  • LED back lit would be nice but cathode back lit is ok.

I am looking for something under AU$300 (using staticICE - Compare Prices - Australia - Price comparison for gadgets and computer hardware to price check).


EDIT: I'm looking at Samsung BX2440. Anyone have any experience with this monitor?

EDIT2: Actually don't worry about it. I think I'll get the Dell UltraSharp U2311H instead
