The U2211H (21.5" version of the 2311) is only $199 right now on Dell's Ebay store. Brand new units, and if you don't care about the physical screen size necessarily, then the $80 off may make a better deal.
This. The U2211H is better than the 23" version, since it's the same panel, but one inch smaller, giving it a better DPI. Plus it's a lot cheaper now, at the time of the quoted persons posting, you could have gotten it for $200.

What's with people and not liking a 22" 1080 monitor? smaller = better DPI.

I see you'll probably ignore this post though too, since you have your mind set on the 23"...

I don't know. The U2211H is more uniform too.

Just a little forewarning, I've read some people having issues with the Huey Pro on Win 7 64bit (like this person) so just be a little wary of that.

Have a read through this page about calibrators in general and how often to use them. That site recommends the Spyder3 Express as the best budget option.

Smaller DPI isn't necessarily a good thing. It's better for images/video, but it makes text hard to read because everything is so small.

For me, the DPI on the 23" is just about right or ever so slightly too small, 24" would probably be the sweet spot for me.

Thanks. Can you not just use another application with any screen-calibrator hardware? Or did i mis-read that?

I thought that. But the 2311 was cheaper. Can't argue with that really.

I'm not 100% sure about the Huey Pro, but most 3rd party software such as basICColor support the Spyder3 series and Eye-One Display 2.

If you want to see what everyone else sees....stay on an uncalibrated TN panel
