    Looking to buy a quality 24 inch monitor to attach my 15' rMBP to. I would like to spend less than 200 dollars.

    Added $50 to your budget and go with a 24'' Dell Ultrasharp. Very high quality. One of the best monitors on the market.

    Seconding the Dell u2412M.

    Keep an eye out for Dell deals. I've seen it go for as low as $229 at times which, while being $29 above your ceiling, is an absolute bargain.

    My brother bought this one for my rMBP and it worked pretty well while I had it.

    HP 23bw

    It's a really good IPS monitor, a bit barebones in terms of ports and 1" smaller than 24 but it does have HDMI. The great thing about it is that it goes on sale, very often, for $169.00. You really can't beat it at that price, but you do have to wait for it to go on sale.

    I've since moved onto a Dell U2913WM, and I would recommend any of the recent Dells to anyone but you can't go wrong with a $170 IPS monitor branded by a major US company w/ warranty.

    Agreed. I have one, and it's great. Also has displayport, so you don't have to buy a dvi adapter. Just have to buy a displayport to mini-displayport cord. That'll save you about $20 over needing to buy a dvi adapter from apple to run a cheaper monitor.
