I use my monitor for browsing & text, no games, videos, etc. Would I be better off with a Solarism LM 1503 with 800 Brightness/350 Contrast & a total response rate of 40 or an Acer AL532 or Planar FWT1503Z which both have 300 Brightness/500 Contrast and a total response rate of 25?

Contrast Ratio IMHO is far more important than brightness, unless of course you use the monitor outside in direct sunlight.
