    As the title says I need another screen for my iMac. It's mainly used as a display for my PS3 so it should have HDMI and DVI inputs and built-in speakers as well (if it's impossible to have HDMI in my price category, DVI goes fine too). I'm looking for 19"-24" monitor for less than 200€ (250€ is the top limit and then it must be at least 22" and have HDMI).

    So do you have any suggestions?

    EDIT: I was searching around and found nice BenQ E2200HD 21,5". It's Full HD (1920x1080) and has DVI-D, HDMI and VGA. It also has built-in speakers which is very nice because most of the monitors that I've found didn't have. And it's only 181€. Does someone have this monitor? Would be nice to hear some user reviews before I buy it, but it's the best one that I've found.

    Hello,

    Only last week I purchased an IIyama 24' monitor for this very reason.

    The model is ProLite B2409HDS.
    It's a full HD screen of 1920x1080 and it's fantastic. Good price too.

    Works really well with the iMac.

    Just came home from store with BenQ E2400HD. It's amazing. Originally I was going for 22" but in store the guy told me that he can sell the 24" for 239€ for me (259€ originally). It's the same as E2200HD but it's 2 inches bigger. Built-in speakers aren't fantastic but they do their job 100 percentile. I can recommend this for everyone, very good product for its money.
