Sceptre 22"

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824112009

I have it and it beats the crap out of most other common name brand LCDs. It was so good that I bought the Sceptre 24" and am running both in dualscreen.

I actually own the awesome 22" LG screen and it was the best bang for buck for my budget. Personally I feel that speakers on a monitor are wasted space, but the drop in contrast ratio will be unnoticable and the HD compatibility will be golden...

Look at your budget and decide. (Yeah I know I'm taking a on the fence view, and that the Sceptre's cheaper... but preference, you know?)
