Default Looking for ideal monitor

I'm looking for a monitor with the following specs as minimum:
Res - 1920x1080
Inputs - DVI, HDMI
Price: <250

That's about it, really
I had been looking at the 24" Samsungs, but they don't have HDMI which I want for my 360.

Thanks,
Yami

Here's the same one that Luke suggested, from a UK site:
BenQ E2400HD 24" TFT Monitor 1920x1080 300cd/m2 10000:1 (dynamic) 16:9 Multimedia HDMI/DVI-D/VGA Glossy Black - Ebuyer

Looks pretty good. And meets all your criteria.

Here's a Samsung that also meets your criteria:
Samsung T240 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor (LS22TWHUSUV)

I found the T240 for just under 200, I'll probably go for that *here's to waiting four months to get it...*

Play.com (UK) : BenQ G2400W 24" Widescreen LCD Flat Panel Monitor With HDMI : Computing - Free Delivery

Thanks ^_^ Reviews seem to say it's a pretty good monitor.

So, I can get the BenQ in 3 months or the T240 in 4. What do you guys think?

The T240 has slightly higher specs. And I think Samsungs are of higher quality. It also looks better too. I would say, if you can wait an extra month, go for the Samsung.

I'll probably do that, then - it's likely to last longer, too, and has a longer warranty.

I noticed this monitor:-
Samsung 2494HS 24" TFT Monitor 50000:1 5ms DVI/VGA/HDMI Black - Ebuyer
40 less than the T240, exactly the same specs except for a higher dynamic contrast. No idea what it looks like though, as I can't find it on Samsung's UK site.
