Any good computer monitors to recommend?

Old one died, looking for some nice flatscreen job for editing purposes, 21 inches or more. Anyone have suggestions? Know of deals?

Thanks.

Dell

Dell 24" widescreen. I decided against the 30" screen because of the contrast and brightness difference. The 24 is a lot brighter and has a higher contrast. I think its on sale right now.

I don't know why anyone with editing in mind would even consider the 30" it has a single DVI input and that's it.

i love my 24" although a second would be cool too.

Guys, i have the Dell 24", but it is not good enough for me.
I would rather prefer a tube monitor. Is there anything out there capable of HD resolution that would give better colors and contrast than the DELL 24"?
thanks

I'm taking a serious look at the new Sceptre 37" LCD that does full blown 1920x1080 widescreen - and at a price well under 2k. The specs on that monitor are just awesome for the price (almost in the unbelievable realm).
