I do programming (ie coding, that is text work) and drawing and needs pixels to be very sharp to be comfortable. Light uniformity accross the surface comes second, color accuracy third and update speed hardly matters at all.
Which 19" should I go for?

I don't know what to recommend. But I can say what you should not buy if you want sharpness.
Don't buy 0.29 dot pitch LCDs.
I had a 19" 0.20 dynaflat CRT, and now I have a VP191s 8ms. And sharpness is the biggest problem of this LCD.
