Question monitor is wanted!...for work/design/, gaming, watching DVDs-any advices are welcome

Going shopping for a monitor - for work/design/, gaming and watching DVDs- want to have all in one because the living space and “office” all in one too . Really, don’t know how to start…of course the cheaper the better, but how cheap it can be to not to loose quality.
How about, BenQ new Full HD monitor E2200HDA 16:9 looks , is it really good?
Does anybody have been using it for a while?
How does it feel?

Thumbs up

I’ve got about a month ago BenQ E2400HDA…
its cheap because of aspect ratio/resolutuion allows them to get more panels per thingy
also it only has d-sub input and no HDCP...
But it’s nice design and cool colors!
So far I think it’s a good deal.

I've got the BenQ 24 inch HD monitor, it's very nice for playing videos and what not, has USB ports too which i guess can be handy.
