I agree... Right now I have this monitor.
Newegg.com - HYUNDAI X224W Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built-in Speakers

Got it from a local store that had it in a special sale. Can't say enough, it's amazing. Especially when you upgrade from a 15" CRT

This one I listed is a lot better and only $15 more:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG P2250 Rose Black 21.5" 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 50000:1(1000:1)

definitely a better buy.

Don't buy based on brand, look at the panel type (IPS, MVA, TN), response time, input lag, and reviews from people who know what they're talking about.

Samsung make some decent monitors, but most aren't really any better than you can find elsewhere.
Just like most other monitor brands.

Really, what you'll find is that most monitor brands will use panels from some other brand anyway.

Brand is still important. Better companies like Samsung and Dell offer zero dead pixel guarantees or other perks you won't get from cheaper brands.

I'd say that zero dead pixel guarantees should be something that all manufacturers follow, which unfortunately some don't.
That just means there are some you might want to avoid.

Though if the store you buy from offers that kind of guarantee (rather than the manufacturer) then it's a moot point.

in nearly every case with the higher-end monitors (IPS, MVA panels) they'll have zero dead pixel guarantees.

I like this one, it's got a nice size, full HD, 2ms responce, really good contrast, it's LED backlit, and it's got an HDMI port:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG XL2370-1 Charcoal Gray 23" 2ms LED Backlight Mega DCR 5m:1 Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 5,000,000:1(1000:1)
