You know, I've heard really good things about Samsung's displays, but that there have been some recent models( which are cheaper) which used TN panels. You'd still get the resolution, but a significantly worse picture. I'm using a Westinghouse 24" monitor. It's a little pricey unless it's on sale, but the thing is so nice that I just don't care most of the time.
Also I should point out that it has composite, HDMI, component, and S-video ports, so if you have any DVD or Blu-ray players that you'd need to hook up, this would generally also solve that problem. My only issue with it is that the speakers face the opposite direction of the screen. I'll let that design flaw sink in for a moment.
