* BenQ G2400WD, 24". TN display that outclasses the 245BW in every aspect, at least according to initial reports. Very good value for anyone who wants a cheap 24" gaming or general use/other panel. The default color accuracy is even good, so although photo editing certainly isn't the best use of a TN panel, it may not be out of the question with this LCD. $369.99 at Newegg."
(really good LCD guide as well as useful for BenQ G2400WD boosting. Updated 1/09.)
Got mine a month ago, and I'm totally amazed, coming off of Dell 17" and a Sony 22" CRT. Absolutely no input lag/response time issues at all in brutally fast multiplayer like Team Fortress 2 and Unreal Tournament 2, and looks amazing...I'm replaying Far Cry because it's so pretty. Haven't even tweaked the picture yet (besides setting the scale to 1:1).
I recommended buy.com because it's cheaper ($350) than Newegg, I think, and it's my understanding that Newegg has a more stringent return policy for LCDs. You should probably confirm that.
If you go with a 22", get an asus or acer as they are around the $160-$180 mark and are good solid monitors. If you go 24", I personally would only go Samsung or Dell. The ToC is a amazing monitor and I highly recommend it.
Personally, I don't like the T2X0 Samsungs because of the red color and the lack of a wall / arm mount option. Specs on the new SW / HD series are identical or better, but the monitors are black and they have standard mounting options. Of course, that's a matter of personal preference.
