Default TFT Monitor Advice

I would like some advice about tft monitors, i want to purchase a 19" one that is preferably silver and has a pivot so it can rotate 90 degrees. After researching i'm left with 5 options:


This is the cheapest of the five, i can get it for under £400 however i don't particularly like the look of it and while the specs seem ok i'm not sure that AOC is very reliable brand.

Belinea 101920

This is just over the £400 mark, it looks ok and the specs seem good, and i currentely have a 15" belinea TFT and i haven't really had any problems with it, although it's still not in the same class as say a samsung model which i'll be coming to in a minute.

Dell 1901FP

I can purchase this for around the £450 mark, specs seem good and all reviews i have read seem good although not brilliant and it's black and like i said earlier i would prefer silver.

Samsung SM193T

This seems like a good choice but is the the second most expensive, slightly more than the dell, specs seem good, it has 750:1 Contrast Ratio as opposed to 600:1 on the other monitors, will this make a lot of difference? all reviews are excellent, reputation of samsung seems very good.

Samsung 193P

This one has 20ms response time which would be good for gaming but i don't play them much, it also has a slightly higher brightness and better viewing angles and looks pretty cool, although is the most expensive and would cost over £500!

So which should i buy? any advice and experiences would be appreciated, i'm not a budget so to speak, but at the same time don't want to spend a huge amount, nearly half a grand for a monitor is a lot of money, thanks in any advance for any responses.
