Well, what's your budget? Sony makes some good ones, but, in my opinion, if anything at all, dell makes some great lcd's for some great prices.

ms is just response time. I would go for 8ms. That's the best settings, at least, for me. Brightness is good 250 cd/m2, yeah. Contrast is always big. You'll see more with a 1000:1, but 500:1 is ok...

Acer, NEC, ProView and Dell make some really nice LCD monitors. Generally, 12ms response time is pretty good for just normal use, but if you're a hardcore gamer, go for 6-8ms response time.

Sony makes average LCDs. Same with Samsung, Viewsonic and LG. They're good for normal use, but picture quality wise, they aren't as good.

I would go with Viewsonic or dell. dell monitors in my opinion are the best but they will cost more.
