New monitor

Hello my second 17 inch led monitor is dieing as it keeps blinking on and off and it's nothing to do with my graphics card or the dvi cable so I was wondering what monitor should I get to replace it?
I would like it to be from 21-25 inches (as it's going to be replaceing my two monitors that are old and out dated and slow)
I would prefer for it to be from ebuyer/scan/aria and around 200 max
Thanks for any surgestions -ztorm
Edit (I'd prefer for it to be hdmi/dvi)(I'd also like for it to be matte but that's not so important)

Hiyya silver mate you going larger with the new one because I reckon you will get a tsunami of advice very shortly. Personally I wouldn't go less than 22".

My preferences are BenQ Philips, HP, Samsung , Asus, Dell in that order I can't fault the BenQ Philip's or the Dell the others I have seen but not owned. Benq out here at the moment are really quite reasonably priced too. Philip's are well priced and Dell though good are in my mind a tad over priced for what I use it for.

Probably the best monitor for this kind of money: Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM

This would be my next monitor
Dell™ UltraSharp™ U2312HM 23” Monitor with LED

I think it is ~ 239pound but often you get discounts by being a member of some auto societies etc.
I have the U2311HM fluro backlit and it is a fantastic value for money IPS monitor. Its color gamut is great and being an IPS it's good for photography with different viewing angles. Obviouslt I'd go for the LED backlit next.

PS Kbrady beat me to it!

I saw this LG 23EA63V 23" IPS LED LCD HDMI Monitor | Ebuyer.com
Now it looks realy good in my opinion but would you say the Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM is better for gaming?

I'm not nececerily aiming high end and your opinion is allways valid in my eyes since you know far more then I do so I'll pass on the lg I like the Dell one but it looks a little ugly but I guess ugly doesn't affect performance.

One of the other things I like about the Dell is the monitor control buttons - I have a Samsung touch sensitive controls and they are a pain.
But a big thing with the Dell is the ergonomics of easily adjusting its position (height, angle, even 180deg rotation if you need that thing).
I sound like a Dell monitor salesman - how about a freebie Dell.

PS- the Dell isn't ugly ---it's very practical.
