Hi, I'm in the search of a new monitor. Here's my requirements:

MUST Have:
Full HD resolution (either 1920x1080 or 1920x1200; higher res is alright too)
Price range $200-$300

Optional:
IPS screen

Not important:
Esthetics
Connectivity (I have D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI; and I don't mind using any of them)

Usage:
For schoolwork and occasional games and movies

I'm a bit confused with some of monitors' specifications. Like, what are the minimum value of contrast ratio, brightness level, refresh rate, and response time of a good monitor?

Currently I'm looking at Dell UltraSharp U2312HM which ranges around $200-$250. I've read some reviews about it and they're generally positive.

Also, where's the best place to get monitors in Melbourne, Australia?

Thanks everyone.

Edit: Just found another option, Asus VS247H-P. This seems to be as good as the Dell one but with lower price.

The vs247h-p is good but it's still tn and ips would be better. The vs239h-p is about the same price. pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs239hp

Oh wow, that vs239h-p sure looks promising. Anyone would suggest against it? Otherwise, I might pick it up. I see that I can find it in Australia for about $175 - $185
