Well, first things first try to find out the panel type. Most monitors are TN. These are value panels, and aren't very good quality. Try to find at least IPS panels like in the Dell 2007WFP.

Contrast ratio basically means the difference between black and white on the monitor. You want the largest possible number for this.
