I've been using the Benq E2200HD for a couple of months now and based on my experiences I can absolutely recommend it. I chose this monitor after I compared it to several other models and manufacturers and also as it got a lot of positive reviews on tech portals. Just google for benq e2200hd review and you'll see.
I use it mainly for gaming and watching movies, but do normal desktop work like MS Office, Dreamweaver, Photoshop and browsing of course. Text display in MS Word and on webpages is sharp and clear, scrolling is no problem either.
But gaming and watching movies are in fact the fields where the monitor can outdo its strengths. Brilliant colors make playing games really enjoyable. Combined with a low response time of 2ms only, this is really a lot of fun. And for movies, as it is Full HD 16:9 you can enjoy Full HD content without limitations.
Apart from that you have an HDMI connector, so connecting to XBOX or PS2 is not problem, too.
