Default Whats a good sub $250 lcd monitor?

Looking for 22" or maybe 24" if theres any awesome deals out, but from what I've seen 22" seems to fit my budget. So whats good?

These are the ones in the recommended parts thread under midgrade but whats the best and is there any others I should check out?
CHIMEI CMV 221D-NBC 22" 5ms[N]
Hanns-G HW-223DPB 22" 5ms[N]
Samsung 216BW 21.6" 5ms[N]

Would having a 2ms response make a difference?

I have heard nothing but good things about chimei, and I plan on buying that monitor myself this weekend. With that said I believe walmart has a sale on Dell 22" monitors for about $299 which is a great deal, and dell monitors are pretty much the best behind apple.

I currently have the Samsung 226BW and love it, it has a 2ms RT and 3000:1 DC. I have heard that one of the new HP monitors are also really good, I do not know which one that is however.

Buy it! It's absolutely amazing quality for what you pay. No dead pixels, absolutely no ghosting (I've tried lol). It is a great monitor and you won't regret it. Some of the reviews on the egg complain about bleed through at the top and bottom, I don't see any what so ever so don't be worried about that.

Is there a noticable difference between 5ms and 2ms?
