This is a decent option -> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/215-a...d-m2-100m1-5ms but if I were you I'd go the extra mile for two of this IPS -> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/22-lg...cd-m-5ms-black

I know it destroys your budget (£50+) but will you be able to remember it 2 years from know? And you will definitely can tell the difference from that superior panel. But it's your money, after all

I see your point, two monitors are very handy. But surely working with those software packages you would want a nice large clear monitor? Just thinking it might be worth saving till you can afford 2 x 23" ~ £200

Yes I agree. If that is what you will be doing, you would do yourself a disfavor by not getting the bit more money you'd need for two proper displays.

After just a bit I found this one. A bit more than 150, but still very close, and a nice size. Not to mention they are DVI and LED.
