Personally, I've always found iiyama TFT's to be one of the best. I recently spashed out and purchased a 17" TFT (Prolite 430) and have been throughly pleased with it. Colour reproduction is excellent, 25ms response time makes gaming a dream. Monitors native resolution is 1280x1024, I do a lot of web development and image design and find that with Dreamweaver and Paint Shop Pro I have more screen real estate than I know what to do with!
All my friends have iiyama TFT's as well, and we all agree you can't beat em ;)
