Cheap setmonitor Hp W2408h for HDV

I want to buy a rather cheap set monitor. I want to use it for focussing and framing while filming.

What do you think of the HP W2408H ?

The screen is glossy and the colours are far from 'true colours', but that's not a big issue, I will not use it for colourcorrection.

I just want to have a decent image to work on the set with my jvc hd 200 in 720p25, 720p50 and my sony hvr-Z1E on 1080 interlaced.

I wonder if it goes well on 720P

HP W2408H
Resolution: 1920 x 1200
Contrast: 1:1000
1:1 Pixelmapping
VGA en HDMI (no DVI)

Price is about 550 euro.

Are there better options (till 1000 - 1500 euro) ?

Dell, LG and Samsung all in the same (+-500 euro) ballpark. I've got experience with An Apple 23" in combination with a Blackmagic HDLink. Apple display is about 850 euro's.
