    Get the 22". The T series is nicer than the BW series.

    I have a 2253BW and the whites are a bit yellowy. My friend's T200 is awesome.

    I would buy the 24 inch because it is higher resolution. Or maybe a 23 inch.

    Get a 20". The 22" monitors have the same resolution as 20" ones, and you can get them cheaper and the image will be better, because the pixels will be more densely packed.

    Will it be a big difference, i mean its just 2 inch extra on 24, and the res at 22, is great ok?

    "Samsung 22" Wide Syncmaster T220 (1680x1050, VGA/DVI, 20000:1, 2ms"

    As an alternative, I'd suggest the Dell 2209wa, which has an IPS panel rather than the lower-quality "TN" type panel the Samsung has.

    You can get these for about $206 or so right now, directly from Dell, with the right coupon code (check dealmac).

    The 22" has a slightly larger dot pitch than the 24" models - less squinting, especially for us older folks!
