Hi, recently my monitor started acting up and it's taking a while to power on, besides it's too small (19" 1440x900) so I think its about time to get a new monitor. Because I'm not very knowledgeable concerning monitors I'm not sure which monitor to buy and would very much appreciate any suggestions/advice.

I'd take a look at the Asus VS238H-P, which is what I ended up getting after doing a lot of research (despite what the amazon headline says it does not have integrated speakers.
It has HDMI and DVI in, tilt on the stand which is pretty decent (the majority of complaints are a flimsy stand, but I don't have an issue with it). Its got a fast response time, nice colors after some calibration, and the LED backlight makes for a slimmer monitor with lower power consumption.
