ASUS puts out some nice monitors. Most LCD with LED backlight, and the best are 24". Here is my personal favorite under $200:

My ultimate favorite though is the BenQ XL2420T. Unfortunately, it has a $400 price tag. Twice your budget.

I ended up picking up a led at best buy, quality seems ok - do you think its worth ordering the asus instead and returning this one ?

Acer - 23" Widescreen Flat-Panel LED HD Monitor

Model: S230HL ABII SKU: 4979838

It looks alright, really comes down to if YOU like it. Just see if you think the quality is good and how it looks in the position (angle + offset) you play at.

I'm coming from being on a laptop for the last 5 years, not sue what it's supposed to look like lol - if the asus is a better quality buy than I would like to know so I can return this one (acer)

I meant aesthetically, like the general look of it. The Asus is only 1" wider so not much difference there, same resolution, and the response time (2ms for Asus vs 5ms for that Acer) doesn't make a difference either. So just stay with that Acer, should serve you well.

What is laptops resolution? just for comparison. if it was 720p you wont see a world of difference at 1080p. however anything lower than 720p its like a whole new experience.
