Hey guys I am looking at buying a new display so I can run it off of my macbook pro to get more screen space while designing and such. I am looking at getting a 24 Inch display and I was wondering what are some good displays that size for around $500 or so?

Here are a few I am looking at

HP L2465- I have heard good things about it but its kinda pricey for me right now.

Resolution: 1920 x 1200
Contrast Ratio 1000:1
Response Time: Up to 6ms

-HP W2408-

Specs:
Maximum Resolution1920 x 1200
Aspect Ratio16:10
Response Time5 ms
Brightness400 cd/m
Portrait and/or Landscape ViewablePortrait, Landscape
Contrast Ratio1000:1

-Samsung 2493HM-

Specs: Maximum Resolution1920 x 1200
Aspect Ratio16:9
Response Time5 ms
Brightness400 cd/m
Portrait and/or Landscape ViewableLandscape
Contrast Ratio1000:1 (10,000:1 dynamic)


-LG W2452T-

Maximum Resolution1920 x 1200
Aspect Ratio16:10
Response Time5 ms
Brightness400 cd/m
Portrait and/or Landscape ViewableLandscape
Contrast Ratio10,000:1


Does anyone have one of these monitors or have used one and can tell me good or bad things about it?

By the specs what looks the best?

I am kinda new to the whole display thing so any advice would help thanks!
