Look out for brightness, contrast and response time.

You can't go far wrong with a, LG or Samsung, so long as you don't buy an older model.

Agreed. Also demo a few locally if you can. Some monitors can have pretty annoying back light bleeding.

That's a good point. Also, always check as many reviews as you can before buying something like this, it's a highly opionated peripheral.

When looking at the specs of different monitors be aware that refresh rates are not always the same, some will show grey to grey others a full off to on and back etc. Also contrasts some show a dynamic range others what the screen actualy is.
