Default Looking for a good monitor - yes I've read that sticky thread

Hey all, I've been looking for a monitor with specs similar to these:

1920x1080 (that's a definite), less than 200 ($300, how times change), probably 22" or higher, DVI and HDMI.

I've only found one monitor that fits those attributes, which is the ViewSonic 22" VX2260WM - what I'm wondering is, is that monitor false economy (i.e. is it actually crap), would a 1920x1080 res look crap on a 22" screen, and are there any similar monitors that it would be better to go for? I'm not looking for any great quality, just average or above average.

you'll be looking at a 24" and there are some decent acer/asus monitors out there. don't know if they'll be under 300 as thats a pretty low price for a monitor. you can however get a 24" Acer for 280 atm (us) thats native 24" res.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
