monitor for my xl1s

Can anyone recommend a monitor (LCD I guess..) for my XL1s?

I will be using it for doing short film and commercial stuff. Ive seen A LOT of different sizes (5.6 and 7") and brands. I also like the idea of having the box or cover around the monitor to shade it.

I have also seen monitors called a "Field Monitor". Whats the advantage of having a Field Monitor vs an LCD attached to your camera.

My price range is around $500.

This one seems pretty nice:

Now I'm not a mod, but I thought that you were only to reference approved sponsors for purchases...

I would be careful about buying from that company, I have tried to call them to ask similar questions and no one EVER answers.
