I'm using a Mitsubishi 20" with a Diamond Stealth video driver, which I love.
Depends which programs you're using, but it makes it much easier to edit and
view in most programs. However, I got this monitor mainly because it was a
good price ($1200 from a used equipment place). For a new monitor, I'd
probably go with an NEC Multisync. My husband has one on his computer, and it
is an excellent monitor, with high resolution.
